Don't know how Ubuntu does it but on every Debian install Grub is setup to give you a recovery option in the boot menu. If you choose this option then you boot to a recovery (single user init 1) shell where you can login with your root password and fix any problems like this perhaps Ubuntu offers this option and you can install the correct driver change the xorg.conf back to the nv driver then reboot with something like shutdown -r now. Alternatively you could boot with a live CD mount your / partition then change your xorg.conf back to nv then try to install the proper driver.
