Did you try the minimal one? I.e. only these 4 lines should be enough.

But lets try the vesa driver first:

* apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-vesa

* update-alternatives --config glx
  select "mesa-diverted"

* use this Xorg.conf:
        Section "Device"
            Identifier     "My GPU"
            Driver         "vesa"

* reboot

If this does not work either, something else is messed up in your system
that is not related to the nvidia driver.

Thereafter run again reportbug -N 735424 and mention whether this was
run after the X (not) started at boot or after manual use of startx.
