Hello,
I messed up my system badly (including attempting at some point a 'manual' install of nvidia 185 drivers by running NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.36-pkg1.run) and I have problems. Nvidia drivers do not work, and are not recognized.

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
gives no information whatsover abou the driver to use. My actual, sorry xorg.conf:

m@ih-Phenom:~$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
#commented part removed


Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"
EndSection

any ideas how to purge the remains of the old drivers and make the system see & use the nvidia drivers? (nothing else gives proper resolution - it's a an integrated 8300)
I'd be most grateful for any help.
