try to install the appropriate drivers using envyng-gtk

sudo apt-get install envyng-gtk

after installation, you will find it in System Tools

when it comes to video drivers, try to stick to repository versions, downloading drivers from elsewhere will often result in all sorts of problems.

I got my drivers from System > Administration > Hardware Drivers.

What is your NVidia card? Mine is an 8600 GT.
