How do i install nVidia 3D driver on my newly installed UBUNTU?

please don't tell me search on google or read this or that. trust me i read a tut on a site and messed up my linux after reboot.

my graphics card is nVidia MX 420

so give me step by step direction. for example, download this, copy and paste it hear, now open this by going here and there, type in this, etc.

be very detailed. i don't know anything about linux.

God bless your for helping a person in a need.

Thank you.

You probably have the latest Linux drivers installed for your nvidia. You should open Synaptic Package Manager and see what they have to offer. The nVidia glx drivers and modules are in the repository. Mark the ones for update and lick Apply. I have had some issues using the flgrx drivers (ATI) from the Ubuntu repository so be aware that you may end up reloading the Xconf from the CD to get your system back up and visible. If you really want to learn the ins and outs of Linux, you might consider LSF (Linux From Scratch). It can give you a good understanding of how Linux works at the most basic and powerful levels.

These are probably not the answers you want. The Ubuntu forums are supposed to be very friendly and would be more suited to questions concerning the specific distro.
