Hi, installed ubuntu yesterday and I replaced the NVIDIA driver today and now the x window server fails.
I have a NVIDIA 7800 GTX card.
Here's the detailed error message I received:

Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support at the X wiki for help.
Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information.
I took a look at FAQ at the X wiki but that didn't seem to help me.
Please help! Thank you.
