The problem is the old drivers module is disturbing newly .

my action list!

1、sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
2、sudo dpkg -l | grep -i nvidia
3、sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.18-pkg1.run --uninstall
4、sudo rm /lib/modules/2.6.27-9-generic/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia*
5、sudo cat /proc/modules | grep nvidia #Show whether there are remnants of the old driver
6、sudo rmmod nvidia
7、sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.18-pkg1.run
My previous 64-bit install of Ubuntu (via Wubi) was demolished by my attempts to install 180.18, so I did a 32-bit install this time. Following the above steps

1) no problem
2) skipped since you did not remove anything after seeing the list
3) ran and was told no previous driver installed (I installed the 8.10 default restricted driver after my 8.10 install)
4) nvidia is a directory so you would have to use rm -r ? or put a / in front of the *
5) skipped
6) did, but no feedback
7) ran and completed.. it compiled the kernel module

I do a sudo reboot and boot into low-graphics mode.

FYI on Ubuntu Jaunty I had to add

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "IgnoreABI" "True"
EndSection

To the xorg.conf to get xserver to run without failure

Assuming I simply paste that to the end of xorg.conf and reboot.. no dice for me (but thanks, anything is worth a shot at this point)
