Solution:1

It seems that the graphics card was not detected properly.
Install the NVIDIA 352 drivers by using a different method.

First uninstall (possibly partially) installed NVIDIA drivers software.

Highlight the Ubuntu entry in the GRUB boot menu and press the E key.
Add nouveau.modeset=0 to the end of the linux line - press F10 to boot.

On login screen press Ctrl+Alt+F1 - enter user name and password - then execute :

sudo apt-get purge nvidia*    sudo reboot    

Now Install the drivers 352.63 supporting NVIDIA GEFORCE GT 630.

Highlight the Ubuntu entry in the GRUB boot menu and press the E key.
Add nouveau.modeset=0 to the end of the linux line - press F10 to boot.

On login screen press Ctrl+Alt+F1 - enter user name and password - then execute :

sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install nvidia-352  sudo reboot    

Note : In case it doesn't work with nouveau.modeset=0 - retry it with the parameter nomodeset.
