Hello & welcome me here. (& sorry for my bad English, it's my native language)
i have this problem:
I've put a new cooling system to my graphic card (9800gt) and from then i can't log in in ubuntu (either in vista, i have a double boot). My pc boots normally, i choose to continue with ubuntu (the last kernel of 8.10), it seems that ubuntu is loading, but when it comes to autologin and show me the desktop, i have a black scree, while the computer is still working.
I try to log in with ubuntu recovery mode, and there i choose "xfix" and i can log in normally.
I think that i should remove the nvidia drivers and then reinstall them.
I am correct, and if yes how should i do this?
Thanks..

I wouldn't recommend that.

Do the instructions in my post on this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=870013&page=2

If that doesn't work, I have another solution that I know will work. If you can run 3d just fine, however, then starting up the PC in recovery mode may have fixed the problem.

I have experienced this problem many times and used different solutions. Ubuntu isn't quite there yet with reliability, I'm afraid.
