Default Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module -error after upgrading to Kubuntu 9.10

Yesterday I upgraded my Linux Kubuntu 9.04 to 9.10. I left upgrade running during night but apparently it went without any errors. Computer was ready to reboot this morning.

But now computer stops to error message when booting:

Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode
The following error was encountered. You may need to update your configuration to solve this.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

There is just OK-button and after that several choices to display logs or edit configurations etc. But I can basicly only go to console, no graphical user interface anywhere.

I've tried several things found from net, like "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" or booting in recovery mode and choose repair. No help.

I've done several distribution upgrades before, this is never happened before. I've never manually installed any nvidia drivers, I've used my Linux pretty much with "default options" always.
