    D/l the latest nVidia driver, put it somewhere on sda7, reboot to your installation, navigate to the folder where you put the script and run the script:
    Code:
    sudo sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-319.23.run
    Follow the instructions and reboot again when the installation is complete.
    I cannot paste the file in sda7. I've tried to do it directly, copying the file from folder in live cd where nvidia was downloaded and by pasting it in the mention partition, but I wasn't allowed to do it
    Could you tell me how I could do?
    Thanks

    Not even with sudo? Please post your command and the error message you get.

    Sorry, this is too much for me. As I wrote before, I'm an absolute beginner. I need you to tell me step by step absolutely everything.

    I haven't got an error message when trying to put the nvidia driver within the sda7. I didn't use the command way, I don't know how....

    That's the command to run the script.

    Let's try.

    From Live environment:
    Code:
    sudo -i
    mount /dev/sda7 /media/disk
    updatedb
    cp "$(locate NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-319.23.run)" /media/disk/root/
    reboot
    Reboot to your Ubuntu installation and log on (to a command line console) with your user name and password.

    From your Ubuntu installation:
    Code:
    sudo -i # enter your password when prompted
    sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-319.23.run
    reboot

    Thank you. But something does not work

    I have done this....

    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo -i
    root@ubuntu:~# mount /dev/sda7 /media/disk
    mount: mount point /media/disk does not exist
