Dear Stephane,
I tried to install drivers and cuda as was syggested in the link you sent me yesterday. I go through the first steps, but after choosing to install cuda and replying yes to all the questions,  I got an error indicating that drivers installation failed. What should I do now?

Be sure to remove all distribution-provided packages (sudo apt-get 
remove --purge *nvidia*, --purge IS important).
