I have been having a problem where the screen 'blinks' twice every 5-10 seconds. The blink is like somebody is turning my monitor off 2 times quickly. I believe this is due to my graphics drivers, if not could anybody please explain what it is as I am a beginner to Ubuntu. I try to download the correct graphics card drivers but it comes up with a .run file and I am not sure what to do from here? I don't know how to install the drivers basically, if anybody could tell me it would be much appreciated.
To install the nvidia drivers, do the following:
Reboot your computer. You should have the nvidia driver installed now. Normally there is an easier, graphical way to do it, but there is a bug that causes problems doing it that way...
