I'm having issues installing the NVIDIA drivers for my GTX570 in Ubuntu 13.10. When I navigate to the additional drivers tab, it states "No additional drivers available." This is a desktop PC, not a laptop, so I'm stumped as to why I am not seeing anything.

I've tried several different manual installs, but all have resulted in a black screen at reboot and a re-install of the OS.

Any help/tips/tricks would be greatly appreciated.

I resolved the issue by running sudo nvidia-xconfig and rebooting my pc.
