First go to Nvidia Drivers Center and download your driver.

1. Remove any previous Nvidia driver

sudo apt-get purge nvidia*

2. Black list the Nouveau driver

Run these commands:

sudo touch /etc/modprobe.d/disable-nouveau.conf
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/disable-nouveau.conf

Add the following two lines, save and close:

blacklist nouveau
options nouveau modeset=0

3. Logout your session

Press Ctrl+Alt+F1 and login with your username and password.

4. Turn off Xorg and install Nvidia driver

sudo service lightdm stop
sudo sh ./your-nvidia-driver-file.run
