    Please give more details about the kind of distribution that you have installed and your graphics card details (especially the amount of dedicated memory it has).

    Have you installed the driver for your Nvidia card? if not then

    Go to System->Administration->Hardware Drivers and check the box to enable the restricted drivers for your NVIDIA card if the option is provided.
