I screwed up somewhere while installing Nvidia drivers , and now my resolution is set to 640*480. Is there anyway to restore the computer an early point before I tried to install the Nvidia drivers, or someway to delete all the data/configurations I made after the installation of Linux mint 14?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You can locate the name of drivers and using the package manager delete the drivers.

I tried using the package manager but there was ~40 different things pertaining to nvidia and no apparent way to remove any particular one.

You remove items by right clicking and choosing mark for removal. If yo choose mark for complete removal it will remove all packages associated with it. I didn't install any drivers on my system (Mint 13 MATE) I have installed:

X.Org X server -- Nouveau display driver 1:0.0.16(precise)
nvidia-common 1:0.2.44.2

Using this as a guide maybe removing nvidia-current’, 'nvidia-current-modaliases’, and ‘nvidia-settings’ will work. I'm not sure though try at your own risk.
