I had better state this otherwise I will most probably have a hard time 
falling asleep tonight - and I do need my sleep.

Once again you do not state to whom you are replying. You are using 
Thunderbird which is more than capable of quoting the person at the 
start of a message as to whom you are replying. For chrissake, can't you 
get this sorted out once and for all?

Now that I have that off my chest, your "It says nothing about any 
driver in /etc/x11/xorg.conf" is then followed by:

Identifier    "Configured Video Device"
     Driver        "vesa"

Can you see it?! Yes or No?!

"*Driver*        "vesa" .

Hallo there, "*Driver*    "vesa".

The driver is not "nv" - which stands for the basic nVidia driver - and 
it is not "nvidia" - which stands for the full nVidia driver for your 
nVidia card.

Read what again what Ric wrote to you.
