Default Removing nVidia drivers

I'm having a problem with the nvidia drivers in linux. I've had to remove my FX5200 as my PC kept crashing with it in. However, when I attempt to boot linux I now find that kdm will only show a black screen, so I can only use a terminal to do stuff. Putting the card back in brings things back to normal, but the PC crashes very often.

I don't seem to be able to find any advice on the forums for how to remove the kernel modules (which I assume is what I have to do to run from my onboard graphics card), can anyone tell me what to do?

You can also use "nvidia-installer --uninstall" if you no longer have the .run file.
