    go into the add/remove programs thing..can't remember what its called. remove anything and EVERYTHING related to nvidia and nvidia-restricted drivers ...

    once they are gone do a fresh install of the latest nvidia drivers, or use envy to automate it for you.

    what happens is when you reboot ubuntu the old restricted driver kicks in and overrides your recently installed driver. hope this helps.
