Hi Artem, I would LOVE to avoid installing anything manually, but it seems there is no choice!
If there is a way to install the Nvidia drivers automatically, please tell me how to do it, this is very difficult, even the link you sent me is very difficult to understand, it asks me to look at some Launchpad PPA overview page etc... to install some thing to then be able to install something else... aaaauuuuggghhhh....

If I install that ppa thing, will I then be able to install the driver I downloaded from invidia without all the other stuff I would have to do? (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-270.41.03.run)

Thanks again,
Mark.
