The CentOS 7's support for Nvidia video graphic cards comes in a form of an open source nouveau driver. In case the nouveau driver is not a sufficient solution, users can install the official Nvidia driver as a proprietary alternative. This step by steps tutorial will guide you through the entire process on Nvidia driver installation.

I finally managed to install the NVidia drivers but I had a few problems. Firstly my NVidia driver installation failed due to having the wrong package. I tried to reboot and couldn’t as the XOrg configuration was messed up.To fix it I needed to go into rescue mode and uninstalling the NVidia driver was the key to fixing it
sudo bash NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-*.run --uninstall
Then I had the driver installed but it wouldn’t let me run nvidia-settings. The grub entry had nomodeset on it. So I removed that and now everything seems ok.
