Command line switch to Nvidia drivers? [Solved]

Command line switch to Nvidia drivers?

While trying to fix something else, I used the driver manager to switch from Nvidia to Nuveou.

After rebooting, I am stuck with a black screen. Grub menu appears, then the little LM splash screen, and after that it's just blackness. I can go into recovery mode from the Grub menu, and get to the "root shell prompt" terminal - is there a way to switch back to the Nvidia drivers from this prompt?
