Hello and Welcome.
Just to get things working for now, you can change the Driver to Vesa, in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Then I would consider re-installing the NVIDIA driver.

Did you install nvidia driver through hardware drivers menu? What is your graphics card? Open terminal and execute this
lspci | grep -i vga

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
From the error log it seems that the system cannot load the nvidia kernel module. That usually means that it was either not installed properly, or you have tried to install the wrong driver, such as a 32-bit driver in a 64-bit system, or vice-versa. You need to boot into text mode, download the correct driver file from nVidia for your system, and run the installation script, confirming it when the script asks if you want it to update the Xorg.conf file.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
