If you want to change the driver version without rebooting, you have to do "rmmod nvidia" first.
Thanks for your response. I did start the install by rebooting the computer straight to the console--X was never loaded. I did not try rmmod nvidia, but will give it a try when I get brave again. Since I'm learning here that 100.14.03 didn't fix the black window bug, I'm not sure what benefit there would be to updating from 9755 which works fine otherwise.
