I decided to install the drivers from nvidia and now I've lost the gui.

I get the ubunutu splash, then it dumps to a shell, and after login I get an error if I try "startx"

The resulting message boils down to this:

"Nvidia API mismatch: kernal module 310.32, however driver component 304.64. fatal server error, no screens found." are the most important details I can gather.

What do I do now? I tried apt-get update then upgrade and a reboot, but it didn't change anything. I'm not a terminal kind of person, so any input would help on how I can update the "driver component" to 310.32, perhaps that will resolve the issue.

Thanks all!
