I recently installed Nvidia graphic driver downloaded from Nvidia official website that meet my graphic card GFroce GT 540M.

However, I got worse graphic on my display resolution changed to 640x640 CRT mode. My laptop is 1366x768.

May I get a better graphic than the default install? Or Ubuntu default install graphic is best?

Please help me to get the default Ubuntu graphic driver that is installed together with system installation.
