    Hi sdowney717.

    Did you restart after installing the driver? If not, do so, and let us know how it goes.

    Regards.

    I am showing synaptic with it installed and all.

    Do I need to purge the driver and get it from nvidia instead of software center?

    Could you post the content of the xorg log?
    Code:
    /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    Please paste it here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/ and post back the link.

    Regards.

    Ok, I fixed it.

    I installed the 310 experimental driver instead of the 304 driver.
    Then I pulled the plug on power off.

    It then booted up with the driver working.
    So I dont know if it was the unplug or the 310 driver or what else.

    I used some ppa for the 310 driver instead of software center.
