Find your kernel version by issuing this command in a terminal:

uname -r
Then install the Linux headers which correspond with this kernel version.

Download the latest NVIDIA driver for your graphics card from the NVIDIA web site. Store in /tmp.

Run the install package using:

sudo sh /tmp/
(Then name of your downloaded package might be different)

Go to a terminal again. issue:

sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start

It is supposed to work now. Substitute kdm for gdm if you use KDE.
