Default Strange X server Boot problems

Up until this morning I had a functioning nvidia GeForce (When running 'lspci | grep' I get “VGA
00:05.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C51 [Geforce 6150 Go] (rev a2)”) I'm not sure what driver I was running before, but it was out of synaptic, and done automatically..... and xgl and compiz were working. This morning I tried to install the Linux drivers from NVIDIA's site. It won't run and now I can't get my card functioning again... the below script has been edited under device, driver, “nvidia” to “nv” just to allow ubuntu to book normally into GUI, Otherwise I get an error loading X Server and I have to re-install the driver. If I try installing the newest drivers through system, preferences, appearance... It auto installs the newest drivers for me... but then again I have the error x server boot issues, and I get dropped at a command line... Below is my xconfig file for the New Nvidia driver...


GNU nano 2.0.7 File: /etc/X11/xorg.conf

# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
