I'm somewhat new to Linux, although I have a fair amount of experience. I've been having a lot of graphical issues lately, and figured that upgrading to the latest linux kernel and Nvidia drivers would help. I was wrong. When I tried to install version 331.38 of my drivers, I got an error pertaining to the kernel. I'm currently using version 3.13.0-031300-generic, and the default nvidia drivers since I couldn't properly install the new ones. Should I continue with new ones or try a different combination. Note that the "out of the box" kernel/drivers caused many crashes and freezes, especially while gaming.
