try
CTRL-ALT-F1
su - (Enter root password)
telinit 3
sh name (run the NVIDIA driver installer)
reboot

You have to install the driver in runlevel 3 (this is what telinit 3) does.

Allow the installer to change your xorg.conf.

that's interesting how your computer gets POST passed if you have no graphics card.
