Documentation for setting up binary nvidia drivers for ubuntu (and
edubuntu) is here:

It's not clear to me if your card is among those listed as supported by the
driver (neither geforce 7000m nor nforce 610m are in the list) so that
might be the problem.

Do you get any graphical screen at all?  

You might get it going (in a limited way) by using the vesa driver.  To do
this, edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf, go to the Device stanza for your video card
and change the driver to vesa, eg:

Section "Device"
        Identifier      "ATI Technologies, Inc. ATI Default Card"
        Driver          "vesa"
        BusID           "PCI:3:0:0"

Then do 
    sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart

to restart the display manager.
