My dad's got the same laptop.

Just install the NVidia driver the "Additional hardware drivers" dialog recommends you. After that, search in teh dash for NVidia and something like NVidia X configuration utility should pop up. Open it.

When you install the NVidia drivers on Ubuntu, you've got to use the tool just mentioned to configure your monitors, not the one included by default.
