Do you see something like this in the log:

(II) LoadModule: "nvidia"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.o
(II) Module nvidia: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"
compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.7676
Module class: XFree86 Video Driver

Also, check if there are lines starting with (EE) - these are error messages.
