    did you download the correct version for your architecture ?
    What is they type of your machine.
    My wild guess is that your machine is a x86 box and you have downloaded
    a NVIDIA 64-bit driver !

    if the executable you have downloaded is correct then
    you can try an ldd on the exe to check if all the dependency files
    are present. The downloaded ELF may be a old version ELF compared to the one in the OS you have.
    you can go to temperory directory where it has extraced the files
    and then check on the file nvidia-installer. If it is a shell script then
    you must check if the first line in the script '#!' points to right executable
    If it is of type ELF then you can check the dependencies by typing ldd nvidia-installer. <- this must not show any "file not found".

    It's a 64 bit proc, but are you running a 64 bit distro?
    Code:
    uname -m

    if it has the x84_64 kernel then it's 64 bit

    I was just asking because you can still run a 32 bit distro/kernel with a 64 bit proc. If that was the case you would want the 32 bit nvidia driver.

    It originally did not come with a x86_64 kernel it came with a 32 bit kernel i upgraded to the 64 bit kernel...and then run the 64bit nvidia driver

    Just a quick information:
    Can you try dos2unix on the script ?
    I just faced this issue with some other script and dos2unix on the script fixed
    the issue.
