Nvidia driver doesn’t work in 12.10

I'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 on my PC. But i cannot find the correct drivers for my videocard. I tried all the drivers in software sources. and i also tried a couple PPAs. My other computer with a Nvidia GTX 650 works great with the ubuntu-x-swat PPA.

Do any of you know how to get the videocard to work?

Thanks in advanced.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You can go to Nvidia's drivers page and download your video card's specific driver.

Just download the installer and run it under root permissions

Please note that you might have to run it while your X desktop is not running - to do so just type

service lightdm stop

and run the installer.
