Install throught "Additional drivers" or try this

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-331

If it won't work, enter virtual console CTRL + ALT + F1 give login and password when asked, go to location where you downloaded latest NVidia drivers and:

sudo service lightdm stop
sudo chmod a+x NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-331.20.run
sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-331.20.run
sudo reboot

Run this lines in a terminal, one after another:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-331 nvidia-settings-331

And then, reboot and you're good to go, with the official latest drivers. Other solutions to install from binaries from nvidia site have caused me a lot of troubles before, this is the best solution I've found and I've been using it the last four releases.

You can use the following command to install the drivers for your nvidia graphics card. it worked for me.

sudo apt-get install nvidia-current

this will install the nvidia-settings too.
