    Hello!
    1.Go to nvidia website and download the latest driver for your video card!
    2.Kill the X server of your session by presing CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE.
    3. cd where is located the driver you just downloaded.
    4.sudo sh xxx (where xxx = the name of the driver) and hit enter,then choose Yes.

    If you are tired go to sleep, otherwise open a shell and follow along.
    # apt-get update
    Wait until prompt returns, then.
    #apt-cache search nvidia
    Then find the driver and
    # apt-get install said driver package.

    Because my ZOTAC NVIDIA Geforce GTX285 wasn't on the premade driver list, this was my best way to install, I think. I'm kind of super noob so maybe there's an easier way, but at the moment this was =)
