Hello!
I recently managed to uninstall the drivers to my nvidia GeForce 8500 GT, and I would obviously like to reinstall them. Upon reboot ubuntu gave me the error warning, and I selected revert to original graphics settings. I tried installing the drivers the way I originally did; select a higher desktop effects setting, and it offered to install appropriate drivers. now when I go to do that, it simply says that it cannot enable them. Some help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Go to System, Administration, Hardware Drivers and select the Nvidia driver.

There is no hardware drivers selection. it goes disk utility and then language support....
