I had the exact same problem recently.
Do Ctrl-Alt-F2 at the oops screen. Login as root and there type
Code: Select all
nvidia-xconfig

then reboot.

Thanks for the help, however I can't even get in to the OOPS! screen now. Getting bad files messages during the boot-up message scroll. then it just wants to reboot. So...must have borked the files somehow too !

Sounds like more got corrupted than simply xorg.conf. I would boot up a live DVD and login as root at the cli. Type in as root
Code: Select all
nvidia-xconfig
which automatically generates a new xorg.conf around the NVIDIA driver and reboot to see if that helps. I would also check your logs for those errors that you saw on boot up. Hope that helps.
