Ok, so I managed to get it to work perfectly and here is the following process I took to install it:
Go to the Nvidia site and download the correct java for Linux (take not of its name and location)
After downloading, press Ctrl + alt + F1 and you will be brought to a terminal like window
Login and then cd to the location of your Nvidia file
Type the following commands:
Close the X Server:
sudo service lightdm stop
chmod the Nvidia File:
chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-xxx.xx.run
Run the Nvidia File:
sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-xxx.xx.run
Note: You may get an error telling you that Nouveau needs to be disabled. Just follow the prompts and it will offer an option to disable it automatically. After this type
sudo shutdown -r now to restart the computer. Follow the above steps again and it should now be installed.
Your resolution will now probably be completely tiny due to it now being in power save mode. To fix this, perform the following:
cd to xorg.conf file:
Editing the xorg.conf file
sudo gedit xorg.conf
You should now have something open with something like this:
HorizSync 28.0 - 33.0
VertRefresh 43.0 - 72.0
back up this file and then you will now need to edit it
Get you monitor files
sudo apt-get install hwinfo
sudo hwinfo --monitor
Take not of the attributes that show and then enter them into your xorg.conf file.
You want to remoce the power saving option "DPMS" and update the HorizSync and VertRefresh to your monitors settings.
My Monitor section looked like the following:
HorizSync 28.0 - 72.0
VertRefresh 43.0 - 60.0
Such a pain just to install a Nvidia driver considering Windows just uses a simple installation program and its done.
