nVidia GEFORCE 520M driver install
I would suggest you upgrade to the newest release of your distro, i.e. The-Distribution-Which-Does-Not-Handle-OpenCL-Well (Kali) linux.

After that download the nvidia drivers from the NV site. You then need to remove all the non-proprietary NV stuff (i.e. distro-provided drivers) e.g. by searching them via:
$  sudo dpkg --get-selections|grep -i nvidia
$  sudo dpkg --get-selections|grep -i nouveau

maybe you need also this one:
$  sudo dpkg --get-selections|grep -i nv

Carefully remove (sudo apt-get remove [package]) ALL the nvidia non-proprietary (and previous installed) NV stuff, reboot, switch to a different shell (e.g. CTRL-ALT-F1), login, stop the display manager (i.e. /etc/init.d/gdm stop sudo service gdm stop) and run the installer (.run file) as root.

You should also try to google for tutorials for your specific distro and card vendor combination (ie. The-Distribution-Which-Does-Not-Handle-OpenCL-Well (Kali)/nvidia), e.g. @eljolot did exactly that and he found a solution for (The-Distribution-Which-Does-Not-Handle-OpenCL-Well (Kali)/amd) and wrote a howto here: https://hashcat.net/forum/thread-2222-po...l#pid13413 . (This is 4 sure not totally suitable for NV, but maybe both have some basic steps in common, i.e. removing packages/rebooting/reinstalling etc)

Try to find some howto's on internet first; if still not working, consider also getting (faster) help on hashcat's IRC channel: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=hashcat

Good luck
