I have Acer V3-771G Laptop that has 1920×1080p full HD resolution. My OS is 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04. I have Nvidia 650M GPU and integrated Intel i5 2.5 CPU graphics HD4000. I can't install nvidia-current drivers properly. I just made fresh install of Ubuntu (I messed few times trying to configure Nvidia drivers) and this is the situation I have now:
Reading on Web about installation, I first did this:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.5.0-26-generic sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
Installed but receive this message/error (this I copied from web, similar problem, not my terminal output, lost mine):
Removing all DKMS Modules Done. Unpacking replacement nvidia-current ... Setting up nvidia-current (304.64-0ubuntu1~quantal~xup1) ...

I solved that problem with these:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update
but my Nvidia drivers were not activated and lost resolution (old drivers too). Now I have fresh install of Ubuntu and don't want to do same steps before asking here. (This time when I installed Ubuntu didn't download any updates yet).
Should I just type this in terminal or try something else now (do I need to configure something else too?):
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.5.0-26-generic sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
