Re: Can not startx anymore after the laptop was forced to turn off

I suggest, not to use the noveau driver. Maybe you should try to use the 
nvidia-drivers, which are offered in packages. For easy installation, you 
should use the nvidia-kernel-dkms and nvidia-glx package.

When everything is installed,  especially the -dkms packages, then the modules 
will be automatically built (thank you, dear developers for the idea of dkms!)

For testing purposes I suggest to move your login-manager out of the way, so 
it will not start (for example move /etc/init.d/kdm to /root). 

When you restart you get a console and can start with "startx" and see the 
output when it fails.

When everything is working fine, move kdm (or your choosen login-manager like 
gdm or xdm) back to /etc/init.d/ and have fun.

Good luck!
