Here is a simple howto for all you nvidia card owners..
The following method has been tested and works with 'newer' cards.
Also please check http://www.nvidia.com/drivers page for any other OR older cards that you may be using(older cards may need older drivers).

The driver file will be bash executable with the .run extension (for AMD it will be .sh).

the driver will be something like --- nvidia-310............. .run

next open a terminal by pressing CTRL+ALT+T
next type these commands:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates

Code: Select all
 sudo apt-get update

Code: Select all
 sudo apt-get install nvidia-current


REBOOT.

know where you have downloaded the nvidia drivers from their website http://www.nvidia.com/drivers....

Once rebooted you will have a low resolution and exploded desktop.
Next you need to kill the X server.

Open terminal and type the following:

Code: Select all
sudo /etc/init.d/lightdm stop


You will get redirected to a blank screen or tty(terminal)...IF you get a blank screen press F1 or ALT+F1...

Enter username and password.

Next go root by typing:

Code: Select all
sudo su


Now go to the path of your downloaded nvidia driver...in this case i will assume its in /home/<your-username>/Downloads/nvidia-310............ .run
type this and go to your path:

Code: Select all
cd /home/<your-username>/Downloads


Code: Select all
bash nvidia-310................. .run


That's it ! Now just follow the instructions in the next few boxes that open up...just press on OK and go ahead. If it asks you to install something like
dkms say YES.
Once completed Reboot.
