Wrong display after installing GeForce GT 335M

Hello everybody
I bought a new laptop 2 months ago, with a GeForce GT 335M VGA and win 7 preinstalled. I installed in parallel Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit but face the following problem
When I activate nvidia driver from the "hardware drivers" tab ( it gives me only one choice ,to install :version current" driver ), I get after restarting, my screed divided in 4 quadrants with something like a corridor in the middle ,each quadrant showing a tiny ubuntu log screen Only after uninstalling it or booting in graphics fail safe mode I get a normal screen again but then , google earth e.g runs slowly and complains that it works in open gl mode or something like that . May be its only that the VGA card is new and there is not yet a proper driver for it? Or should I try some changes in some configuration file? I have tried the advices from but it didnt help . In win7, the card works fine but ....
Please, any help would be very appreciable

There is a driver...

The Nvidia site lists the card as supported by the latest driver(256.53). You can use the command "nvidia-settings" to change the configuration of the graphics card and screen, but the question is, will it help? Type the command "nvidia-settings -h" for command options.

If you do not have the latest driver and want to install it, you can do so directly from Nvidia.

The README has information on configuration that might help you.

Four screen images at a time is not a fault I have ever read about. Interesting.
