    These are your results

         Kernel driver in use: nvidia
         Kernel modules: nvidia_current_updates, nouveau, nvidiafb
    and it seems that something went wrong.

    Open a terminal and give the results of these commands
    Code:
    dpkg -l | grep -i nvidia
    Code:
    ls /etc/X11/
    Code:
    grep -R nouveau /etc/modprobe.d/
    Thanks
    Hi

    The results are as follows

    I hope this makes sense because I am confused by the whole problem.

    Code:
    sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf*
    Code:
    sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-*
    Post the results of above commands (2nd and 3rd must return nothing).
    and also of this command

    OK.

    reboot your system and again give the results of

    Code:
    dpkg -l | grep -i nvidia
    and
    Code:
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 vga

    Re: Nvidia Nightmare after software update (sep 25th 2012)

    Yes , this is looking better , but no as it must be.

    You have not the nouveau driver loaded. Now you must have a little problem with graphics. Don't you ?

    Now you cleared up the nvidia , cuz you had 2-3 nvidia drivers installed at same time , lets install the latest nvidia-current driver and see .

    First of all , open /etc/modules and remove nouveau .

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/modules
    and remove nouveau . Save the file.

    Then apply bellow commands in terminal

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update 
    sudo apt-get clean all 
    sudo apt-get autoclean 
    sudo apt-get autoremove 
    sudo dpkg --clear-avail
    Then again
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update 
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    to upgrade all your packages to latest version.

    Install Nvidia current driver. 304.51 from X-Swat PPA , I can see you have added this PPA already.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
    sudo nvidia-xconfig
    Reboot you PC and let me know if your graphics are OK.
