Sorry, I assumed the problem was less trivial than that :)
You could have just installed the Ubuntu nvidia proprietary drivers from
Synaptic package manager (get the -new ones, around the 169 version
number), then run
sudo nvidia-glx-config enable
or something similar. Alternatively, just edit xorg.conf if you're used
to that method.
The Ubuntu restricted drivers manager is only the new method, we didn't
have that a few versions ago.
Your problem might just be that the id sent by your card isn't
recognised by the Ubuntu restricted drivers manager, in which case it
could have been helpful to others to provide it on launchpad (open a bug
against the restricted drivers manager).
