Is this on a server, or a desktop? –  8128 Nov 16 '10 at 20:53
    
Information on what kind of nvidia card would help here too. –  Jorge Castro Nov 16 '10 at 23:45

It's likely that you have caused the machine to use the backup nouvou or vga drivers if your nvidia configuration failed.

You need to reassert the old xorg configuration:

sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak
sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf.nvidia /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Then restart your computer to take effect. If you don't solve this issue wit this, please post your configuration and your dmesg log. Also consider posting a bug report as to why you needed to configure nvidia in such a way as to potentially make it fail.
