I installed Ubuntu12.04 today and then I found my GeForce GT525M not being installed properly.It wasn't recognized by Ubuntu.But now I want to install GNOME3 and it requires my GT525M installed properly.So,what can I do to install my GT525M driver?Or how can I use GNOME3 normally?Thank you.

For installing Nvidia drivers, you can try the following at the ``terminal".
If, as you said that, the drivers were not installed properly earlier, you can try:
Please make sure that you are connected to the internet when you use these commands.
