Default Cannot boot into GUI after Video Driver is Installed

Good Day,

I am not 100% certain if here is the right place to bring this up, however
if this is the wrong place for this please redirect me to right place.

A few weeks ago I was trying to install KVM on my laptop, I bought a new
laptop and immediately after I install the nVidia drivers I receive the
following error "libfcoe_device_notification: NETDEV_UNREGISTER lo"

I spent several hours googling the error and there are several issues,
however none of them are related to my situation.

I am running CentOS 6.2
LSB Version:
:core-4.0-amd64:core-4.0-noarch:graphics-4.0-amd64:graphics-4.0-noarchrinting-4.0-amd64rinting-4.0-noarch
Distributor ID: CentOS
Description: CentOS release 6.2 (Final)
Release: 6.2
Codename: Final

Below are some of the errors that I extracted from the logs

I removed the xorg.conf file and I am able to boot into the GUI with the
default drivers.

Is there anything that I can do to resolve the issue so that I am able to
use the kmod-nvidia drivers on CentOS 6.2?

Any help or guidance will be greatly appreciated.

You say that you deleted xorg.conf, and could then boot into runlevel 5
using the default drivers. If you do an lsmod, does it show nouveau?

Second question: does the version of kmod-nvidia support your graphics card?

Oh, and did you yum install it, so that you got nvidia-x11-drv?

mark, who just noticed that he's got that, *and*
nvidia-x11-drv-32bit,
on his x86_64 system for some reason....

But what I was asking was whether this version of kmod-nvidia uses the
nvidia-released support for that card. You said you bought a new laptop
that this is on - is that brand new out of the box, or new-to-you, used?

*That* is extremely strange. Could there be a second, Intel, video?
