Keyboard stopped working in the FC9 GUI

I installed the Nvidia drivers on Fedora 9 and now my keyboard stopped working in the GUI, so I can't log in. It works fine in the console. If I hit ctrl + alt + f1 it works.

I have googled for this for about a day and have seen nothing.

Sounds ominously like you've nuked /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

Check your keyboard settings in there.

I checked yesterday and the settings for the keyboard are the same as the backup xorg.conf that the Nvidia driver made. Any ideas?
