Set execution permissions:

$ sudo chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-*-343.13.run

Kill the display manager, which can either be: kdm for KDE, gdm for Gnome, lightdm for LXDE and XFCE, mdm (for Linux Mint):

$ sudo /etc/init.d/kdm stop
OR:
$ sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
OR:
$ sudo /etc/init.d/lightdm stop
OR:
$ sudo /etc/init.d/mdm stop

And finally, run the Nvidia binary file:

$ sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-*-343.13.run

    Someone managed to install the nvidia driver correctly in Elementary OS, I have the DELL 5437 14R laptop with Intel video cards and GForce 740M Graphics 4000. I really need to recognize the GForce some activities I perform.
