Exclamation Black screen after installing Nvidia drivers on Ubuntu 10.10

The exact problem I face is that as soon as I install the Nvidia recommended drivers using the "Hardware Driver Manager", I restart the system but it never gets past the login splash screen. After I log in it simply goes to a black screen and sits like this indefinately. I can hear the login sound but there is no image. The suggested driver from Ubuntu repositories is: 260.19.06

My GPU: Nvidia Gforce 8400GS 256MB RAM PCIe Ubuntu Maverick 10.10
Monitor: LG Flatron 1953s 19"

anyone to hep?
thanks!
