    Angry PC doesn't boot thanks to nVidia driver.

    I was trying to install the nVidia driver for gaming in Ubuntu but after the installation and rebooting it doesn't boot because hangs on this message: "Could not write in bytes: Broken pipe", no clue what I'm supposed to do, I can enter recovery and root terminal so, there's a light to get out of this cave.
    I thought about uninstalling Ubuntu but I've installed that alongside Windows 7 so I can't take the risk to erase all my data.
    And I know what you're thinking, I googled a lot and any of the solutions suited for my problem, I guess that error appears in different situations.

    So, guys, what should I do?

    What driver did you use? Did you download from nvida and did you run from a prompt. Example:
    Code:
    sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.88.run
    Have you tried running it again?
    boot_info_script | AMD64 Athlon X2 Dual-Core - nVidia Geforce 6150 SE - 4GB DDR3

    No matter now, I've uninstalled.
    I guess that happened because that install modified the kernel or I don't know, after that doesn't booted anymore.
