Seeing the Xubuntu-with-dots screen is a good sign. It sounds like you may
have multiple issues, and that acpi=off peeled one layer off of the onion.

With acpi=off, does Ctrl+Alt+F1 get you to a text login prompt when the
white screen appears? If so, you may be able to try installing updates
and/or nVidia proprietary drivers.
