NVidia GeForce GT 540M Drivers not Working

view story

http://askubuntu.com – I have upgraded my laptop to dual boot Windows 8 and Ubuntu 12.10, which is fine and all, but I have been updating the drivers on the Ubuntu side of things, but I have downloaded and executed NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-310.32.run from nVidia, which didn't work. I started to get this error message: and could only view the desktop in 640x480 which wasn't enough to do anything. But then I tried following the instructions here, but it still hasn't worked. Can anyone give me a pointer in the right direction? (HowTos)
