Nvidia graphics card fell short after upgrade to 10.10

After updating to 10.10, my system is incapable to start in regular setting as a result of troubles with graphics drivers. The laptop computer (hp dv9500) boots just in failsafe, reduced resolution graphics setting. Below is the message from the log:

[    67.427] (II) LoadModule: "nvidia"

What I attempted to do currently:

sudo apt-get purge nvidia*
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
modprobe nvidia
FATAL: module nvidia not found.

Download the exclusive drivers from here. To run it, switch over to runlevel 1 making use of sudo init 1, after that visit from a console and also run it with sh NVidia*.run.

When it asks whether to run nvidia-xconfig, select "Yes". Reactivate and also you are excellent to go.

Keep in mind: you could require to run it once more after every kernel upgrade.
