OK so I just got Ubuntu the other month or so. I'm running the 11.04 version currently and trying to install drivers for a Nvidia graphics card (it's my brother's computer and he currently cannot find the number of the card right now). I read that, to install the proper drivers for gaming, I would need to go into "Additional Drivers" and choose them myself.
I was trying to properly set up my external display as a second screen and in the course of that I switched several times between my NVIDIA graphics card and the Intel graphics chip set as well as between the different "additional drivers" from NVIDIA (proprietary) and the open-source driver.

Hey guys, I've been using ubuntu without installing any of the additional drivers. If I do click there, it says I should allow the installation of my nvidia 305m driver.
