Default Problem installing Nvidia drivers on dell M4400

Hi,
I have installed the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-177.78-pkg1.run on my Dell M4400 laptop (with a Quadro FX 770M card). When I try to start up X Server now, I get this message:
"API mismatch: the NVIDIA kernel module has version 169.12,
but this NVIDIA driver component has version 177.78. Please make
sure that the kernel module and all NVIDIA driver components
have the same version."
and thus I am unable to boot the GUI with the appropriate driver (the one I'm using now is the generic vesa driver). I suppose this is a stupid question, but as I am quite new to the linux world, I have no clue at all how to solve it. Any help would be appreciated !

It appears to be an Ubuntu system.
Did you read the warnings about installing a downloaded driver on Ubuntu instead of the package distributed by Ubuntu?
You need to disable the Ubuntu driver manager or it will try to put back the drivers it has installed itself.

Indeed, after I've uninstalled all standard nvidia-related packages, it's working !
Thanks for the help !
