Exclamation Problems with NVIDIA driver

I cannot get my NVIDIA drivers to work I have tried updating xorg before and after both inside X. I am new and didn't know how to open the file out of X. If i update xorg before installing the drivers and start X i get the NVIDIA logo but if i turn off my computer it will load udev and storage network and audio then i will get a message saying that it is configuring kernel parameters yet over hours waiting no response. then if i do it after in X and restart X the system fails to load X and i must change the settings, if i reboot with xorg updated i get configuring kernel parameters. Any suggestions? Help would be appreciated. i been at it for a week or two now. I am stumped.
