Just intsalled Ubuntu 12.04, but I want to get the most out of my graphics card so I installed the recommended drivers for Nvidia 310M.

When I boot up get to the login screen the display is split into 4 equal parts and each area is a mirror of the other.

Anyone have any ideas how to get a decent driver working for this. I have tried BumbleBee and looked at nearly all the solutions on the forum.

It seems that Nvidia just sucks in general.
