Additional Drivers Not Applying


Unsure if this is the right sub-section, but I am unsure as to why I am getting this problem.
I open "Software & Updates", then to the "Additional Drivers" tab to switch my graphics drivers to use NVIDIA drivers, however, when I click "Apply Changes", my selection reverts back to "Using X.Org X server - Nouveau display driver...". Can anyone shed some light on 1. why this is happening, and 2. how to solve the problem?

All help is appreciated
