Unhappy Fail to start X when using nvidia drivers, logo flashing then i get to console

Hi

First, im running:
Debian sid/squeeze
KDE4
kernel: 2.6.26-2-amd64

I've been trying to get the nvidia drivers working with my 8800gt for quite some time now, in several different ways. Some more or less successful.

Now i've gotten to the point where I don't know what to do. I have tried all the "fixes" I can find.

When I try to boot with the nvidia drives now everything seems fine untill X is about to start. The Nvidia logo flashes a few times and then I get into console mode.

The Xorg.log says:
"Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting"

Please help me! I really don't wanna go back to using windows as desktop OS.

Attaching various logs and xorg.conf. Tell me if you need to know anything else.
