Obviously Xorg has nothing to do with this issue.
Please make sure that your nvidia module is up-to-date and in sync with current kernel.
If I were you, I would delete nvidia-driver package, make sure that it has gone from /boot/modules, than download latest driver version
and recompile it. After that try to reboot and see what happens.
