The nvidia troubles are just what loads of us have been experiencing.

If this is the case I would unplug the nvidia graphics card. Remove the cover off the built in dvi port (located on the rear next to the 4 usb ports) and plug your monitor into there.
If your machine boots into a desktop with a live distro this will prove your problem is with your graphics card or its driver.
Hope this is some help.
