Instead of just deinstalling, I'd suggest purging the package(s), which also 
removes configuration files.
Optionally you can also do the following to make sure all config files are 
indeed removed:
- check /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ to see if there are any config files there (which 
could interfere)
- run 'updatedb.mlocate' (as root)
- run 'find -name *nvidia* -type f' (as root) to see whether there are still 
nvidia files on your system you'd like to get rid of

Then reboot and install the nvidia driver
