how to "factory reset" nouveau driver ? (restore defaults)

My laptop's SSD has been moved from an older to newer model (E6530) - And Ubuntu upgraded for years. The situation is that the Nouveau driver does not display anything on HDMI out, but the HDMI device is showing just fine is "displays" Nvidia driver works as expected. (so hardware is ok)

  • How can I make the Noveau driver "good as new" ? (forget any and all of it's config over time)

You're misunderstanding the problem: It's not a matter of settings (or reset). It's a situation where `nouveau` supported HDMI out in the old Nvidia card but doesn't with the new, something quite expected.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
