Sure, but I haven't used Ubuntu for a few months now. You need to install package nvidia-glx which will install a few more packages that are also needed. I would think Ubuntu would have installed it, but maybe not. If you know you have a internet connection like a wired nic connection you will be able to install from command line. When you first boot up you should have something like three selections, what you want to choose is single user mode or similar, possibly recover mode, that will bring you to a command line prompt. Once at that command line enter this command: sudo aptitude install nvidia-glx, hit enter, enter admin. password and see if it will install or tell you it's already installed. If it appears to install and the command prompt returns, enter this next command to reboot and see if you have graphics: sudo reboot.
EDIT: Just looked up the package on-line and it appears Ubuntu named it nvidia-glx-173, you might need to enter that name in the command.
