13" Macbook Pro 7,1. Nvidia 320M, Ubuntu 12.04.
The Nvidia drivers do not show up in the restricted drivers application. I've tried installing nvidia-current from both the official and x-swat PPAs, both would give me a black screen after installation.

When you boot up your laptop, does it make it to the bootloader screen?

Yes, it booted just fine as far as I can tell, I could boot into text mode. But trying to start x would lead to the black screen
