Default Fatal Error: No Screens Found - Gentoo

I've emerged the gentoo-glx and gentoo-kernel(5336)and set up my XF86Config file by commenting out load dri and load GLCore and i uncommented Load glx and set my driver from nv to nvidia. I also have the correct refresh rates for my monitor. When i startx it says Fatal Error No Screens Found. Also up above i have the screen found but no configurable error. Any ideas how i can fix this?

There can be many reasons (which is why the config helps.. and a log too, so include /var/log/XFree86.0.log). Common reasons are: failed to load the nVIDIA kernel module (you'll see this error in the log just above the one you've posted) , and no resolutions configured.
