Don't guess, take a look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log. When doing this, first
grep EE, IOW run

grep EE /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Modules have to fit to the kernel. You should run the NVIDIA *run thingy

You perhaps need to stop by another way, than using /etc/init.d/...,
this depends to the distro you're using.
