This latest driver of nvidia you can install it from a PPA here in launchpad.

https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ppa

PLEASE READ the description before you add it .

First remove any Nvidia driver

~$ sudo apt-get purge nvidia-*
~$ sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic
~$ sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
~$ sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Then add the PPA and install the 310.19 driver

~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
~$ sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get upgrade
~$ sudo apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-settings
~$ sudo nvidia-xconfig

Reboot.

Thanks
