Before doing anything drastic try this: Using PICO or another editor
that you like edit /etc/X11/XF86Config, find thie section that has

Section "Device"
BoardName "0x0322"
BusID "1:0:0"
Driver "nvidia"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Screen 0

and change the "nvidia" to "nv"

and try booting again.

If one of the last kernel updates from YOU was done then you needed to
re-install the nvidia drivers again. It wouldn't hit your sys till the
next re-boot.
