Default Nvidia driver fails to boot X on Debian

Every time I boot my Debian Operating System, X tries to start, but
fails. It gives me the option of seeing the output, and when viewed,
the only thing I see of concern is that it can't find the proper path
to certain fonts. I have tried searching for a solution on the
internet, but to no avail. I tried commenting out the "problematic
fonts" in my xorg.conf file, but that didn't work. Due to the fact
that commenting out the "problematic fonts" did not work, I am fairly
certain that my problem (of X not starting properly) is not related to
the font issue.

The only (hopefully temporary) solution I have found to deal with it is
every time my computer starts up, I hit alt+F1, I stop gdm, I reinstall
the nvidia driver, and then I start gdm. This allows X to start, and
everything works fine (direct rendering is enabled, etc). This only
solves my problem until I reboot or shut-down, though.

I have searched google pages for hours, and have tried everything I can
think of--but nothing has been able to permanately fix my problem.

If I need to attach something else, please let me know

thanks in advance =D
