Nvidia drivers.

Installed Nvidia driver on windows 7 and everything works ok but Mint 15 does not seem to happy with it, runs but message appears about high level of cpu use due to driver problem.
Is it a simple matter of going to the Nvidia site and downloading the Linux driver or will that mess up the driver for windows ?

Re: Nvidia drivers.

Did you run the new driver selector?
Can't remember its name just now and using M14 here. But the new selector tool will download and install the latest driver for you, saves having to faff about removing the other drivers.
Also which NV card it it?
