    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    If you are installing proprietary nVidia drivers downloaded from their web site you need to do two things. First, you need to blacklist the Nouveau open source driver that is installed by default. Second, you need to install the nVidia driver from the command line (text mode - runlevel 3 usually). Showing us thrumbnail images of the errors is usually not good as nihili mentioned. Just transcribe the messages here in a quote or code box.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
