Identify your card with terminal command:
lspci | grep VGA
Find the driver for your card on nvidia's site: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
In my case, I needed the 340.96 version - NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.96.run
In a terminal, as root, install necessary kernel source:
slapt-get -i kernel4.4-stripped-src
Reboot computer and select TUI mode.
Log in as root.
Make the downloaded file executable and run it:
chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.96.run
On first run, it will detect that nouveau is running and offer to disable it.
Let it do so, then reboot to TUI again.
You will probably notice that the display now is running at a lower resolution.
Log in as root and run the installer a second time.
On our 32-bit version, it is easy to read and follow the instructions.
On the 64-bit version, the display gets corrupted and you have to pay close attention.
During the first run, press keys in this sequence:left arrow
During the second run, the sequence is this:left arrow
