That's what i can't understand too.
After boot X does not start and i land on the basic text shell.
So i can log in as user and startx.

Without xorg.conf i only get the error "no screens found".
With an xorg.conf i only get an blank black screen.
It seems that the graphic card is not initialized correctly or something else.
Shutdown is with CTRL-C by the user.

I tried to use nvidia-xconfig with the same result of this black blank screen.
The xorg.conf is attached.
