Nvidia driver fails to load.

Installed a fresh Debian Wheezy 64bit install, then installed the latest kernel and kernel headers from backports

sudo apt-get -t wheezy-backports install linux-image-3.14-0.bpo.1-amd64 linux-headers-3.14-0.bpo.1-amd64

installed fine and rebooted the machine then installed the nvidia driver using:

sudo apt-get -t wheezy-backports nvidia-driver

Then created a Xorg config file:

mkdir /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d 
echo -e 'Section "Device"\n\tIdentifier "My GPU"\n\tDriver "nvidia"\nEndSection' > /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf

rebooted again, and instead of KDM loading, I'm at the tty1 terminal.
If i do a startx i see this error :
ERROR: could not insert 'nvidia_current': Unkown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

Looking at dmesg it says :
nvidia: Unknown symbol acpi_os_wait_events_complete (err 0)

dmesg log - http://paste.debian.net/hidden/79b104bd/
Xorg.0.log - http://paste.debian.net/hidden/6dd9fc2f/
