Kernel upgrade means you'll have to reinstall the proprietary drivers.

Visual Effects

Thanks for the link. Worked like a charm. I never would have been able to find those instructions. I had already downloaded the driver from nVidia, but hadn't been able to do anything with it.

No problem, google is your friend. All I did was search for 'how to install nvidia driver ubuntu 10.04'. If you're happy with the solution, please use the thread tools to mark the thread as [SOLVED].
