>From your X log, it looks as if your xorg.conf isn't configured to load
the Nvidia X driver.
First, double check you have the kernel driver installed by typing in a
lsmod | grep nvidia
You should see something like:
nvidia 8114232 38
If not, the kernel driver is not installed.
If the kernel driver is installed, try running:
to update your xorg.conf then logout and log back in to restart X, if
all goes well you should see an Nvidia splash screen as the X driver is
