Default Ubuntu gutsy 7.10 in Low Graphics

Hi,
I installed de nvidia drivers for my videocard, nvidia geforce fx5500.
After reboot, linux were running in low graphics mode and the 3d options are not functioning.

"desktop effects could not be enabled"
I didnt have the 3d options even before the instalation of nvidia driver ,but i at least hah a good resolution without low graphics.
How can i solve that?
thanks

This has been answered quite a few times. The restricted driver manager is conflicting with the NV binary driver. There is a sticky on the main Linux page that explains how to install the NV driver by hand. If at all possible just use the restricted driver manager to install the 3d driver. If you have a good reason to install the binary then read the sticky.
