It said you had the wrong driver installed... Before you go to NVidia to download your driver, maybe you might want to do a
You will get out similar to this:
lspci -vnn | grep VGA
And copy down the Hex Card ID... Once you do that, look at this list and find your Video Chipset. Where it is in that list will tell you which Nvidia driver you need to download for your video chipset:
mafoelffen@maf-ubuntu-01:~$ lspci -vnn | grep VGA
03:00.0 VGA compatible controller : nVidia Corporation G92 [GeForce 9800 GTX] [10de:0612] (rev a2) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

GeoForce 9800 GTX+ 0x0613 A
When you get to that download page at NVidia, download the "appropriate" driver for "your" hardware. Follow the instructions in post #280, noticing where I note where you would have to substitute the "runfile" filename for your driver....
You will also have to pay attention to my note on "your" Blacklist. If the driver you need is earlier or legacy, then it should NOT be listed in your blacklist (eg- nvidia-173, nvidia-96, etc.)
