  • I would suggest you make two separate questions for this. – Minos Jan 13 '15 at 15:46

The standard Ubuntu Nvidia drivers generate some problems on slightly older and slightly newer Nvidia hardware.

If you want more then the standard Ubuntu repository drivers, install the xorg.edgers PPA. As the xorg.edgers group ask not to give installation instructions directly without linking to their page, this is the best I can do.

If you don't know what a PPA is or need some guidance after reading their page, leave a comment below.
