I tried installing Nvidia drivers using different ways: repository nvidia-current, nvidia-331 and using downloaded file from Nvidia web site.
Installations seems to be successful, although I got pre-installation script failed message from .run file.
After installation I ran sudo nvidia-xconfig and reboot.
In both cases the system doesn't seem to use installed driver.
My Pc was running all good with 3.8.* kernel and the 319 driver for nvidia, i decided to upgrade the kernel to the current 3.12.7, after that the nvidia driver got fkd up and daemon wont start. I upgraded the driver to the 313 version which supposdley supported the 3.12.7 kernel, even with that it didnt work.

I've just installed Ubuntu 12.04 for the second time. I've tweaked all the settings except for the Additional Drivers page. The last time I did this, I ended up with an installation that couldn't start.
When I click on the Additional Drivers button, it comes up with a bunch of listed nvidia drivers. Which one should I use for my NVIDIA Quadro FX 770M?
