How exactly did you try to install the drivers, and what was the exact error message?

Do you have the correct kernel source package installed in the proper directory? You have to have the kernel source installed so it can build a driver. You will probably get a warning that your gcc compiler isn't the same as the one that compiled the kernel, but it is probably safe to ignore that if you gcc is a recent version it will probably be backward compatible for the most part. I ignored it and I have seen any problems yet. The openGl seem to work fine. (I have a laptop with NVidia 7150M)
