View Full Version : [ubuntu] Messed up my gfx drivers

September 25th, 2011, 12:10 AM
I tried uninstalling my fglrx proprietary drivers and installing the xorg one and now I boot to a black screen... I want to just restore all settings to their default hopefully without losing files

1. How do I boot to recovery (single-user, safe mode, etc), you dont see grub in the latest versions?
2. Is it possible to restore all settings to defaults without losing files
