Troubleshooting NVIDIA Drivers in Ubuntu Hardy Heron

The problem often encountered when installing ubuntu is VGA driver problem, especially from NVIDIA. This problem sometimes make confused to solve it. I also facing this problem when the upgrade version of Ubuntu to the old version of Hardy Heron. After explore in the virtual world for a few days finally I found some suggestions.But the suggestions have not also successfully overcome this problems. After trying many times finally the driver can work on my VGA NVIDIA running on Ubuntu. I submit the following steps that I do, hopefully can help the friends of the other that have the same problem.
  1. Dowdload NVIDIA drivers from the official site (http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html). Download the appropriate driver with a VGA version you use. I download: NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.07-pkg1.run
  2. Save in your ubuntu home folder
  3. Entrance to the command-prompt by pressing ctrl + alt + f1
  4. Type the following commands:

sudo apt-get remove –purge nvidia*
sudo apt-get install linux-headers- libc-dev build-essential
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.07-pkg1.run
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start
Now try use desktop effects in Ubuntu.
