What am I doing wrong that needs to be fixed?
If you have Envy installed boot to recovery mode and enter
Code:
envy -t
.

Choose remove nVidia drivers. Let Envy config X when prompted.

reboot to recovery mode again and enter
Code:
envy -t
. Now install the nvidia drivers. Let Envy configure X when prompted.

Reboot to your desktop. You should be good to go.

Portato? I've been through it, but I didn't know how to use it. Didn't spend much time with it either.
