Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

How did you install the NVIDIA driver?
Please repeat the steps and let us know of any errors shown -- I realise you can't copy and paste but the errors ought to be obvious and please be as explicit as possible.
Then do an apt-get update, to refresh the package lists on the computer, then finally, install the drivers with:
apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,') nvidia-kernel-dkms
To finish up the actual driver installation, create an Xorg configuration file with the following commands:
echo -e 'Section "Device"\n\tIdentifier "My GPU"\n\tDriver "nvidia"\nEndSection' > /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf
Than reboot your computer to blacklist (disable) the open source nouvou driver which is loaded by default.
All that is required afterwards, is to install cuda with the following command:
There is no need for nvidia-xconfig if the above is done.
Probably not but if the guidance was followe to no. Avail then it may work.
I'll be honest here -- I've the same. Card. Running under zisd fine with the NVIDIA drivers from the web site but my X11 configuration files are a few years old and I have an xorg.conf which seems to still be in effect.
