Please open a terminal (CTRL+Alt+T) and type ` dpkg --list | grep nvidia* ` followed by ENTER. Add the output to your question. – Hannu Jun 20 '14 at 8:40

There is bug at ubuntu 14.04. It not working as the same as older version. When you install Ubuntu, press left shift. Choose your language, press f6, choose pci off. Then esc, than try Ubuntu. You have to try it before install it. In the live image choose to install than it will work.
