So are you using a Login Manager for xorg? Maybe you need to disable it until you get xorg working.
ee /etc/rc.conf

Anyway you are probably going to have to either get the Nvidia driver working or go into bios and disable Nvidia and use the CPU integrated graphics. My Dell notebooks I cannot disable the NVidia module.(Optimus)
So you may need to mess with it some. Might need i915kms driver with xf86-video-intel for xorg.

Well if there is no option to disable then you need to focus on getting the nvidia driver working.
