    Default Nvidia Drivers Issue (startx) - detailed info inside - please help!

    Hello community,
    I'm (almost) ready to throw my laptop off a really tall building, because I'm that pissed off and can't seem to find my way around to solve this problem.. And it's a good laptop, with i7 top notch processor, so that just goes to show how hopeless I am.. :/

    Okay, joking aside I really need your help! I think I've spent last 2 days installing/uninstalling BT5r3 numerious times and tried many different ways around installing nvidia drivers but none seemed to work..

    This is the case: I have Dell laptop N5110 with GeForce 525M graphics card. It's optimus tehnology, meaning I have 2 graphics card, Inter HD and GeForce, and it should change them depending on what I'm doing on laptop..

    I did a clean install of BT5r3-64x off USB pen installation, and did the following:

    1. typed: prepare-kernel-source
    2. typed: cd /usr/src/linux
    3. typed: cp -rf include/generated/* include/linux/
    4. downloaded (either 310.19 or 304.64, can't really remember, 64x edition) driver from www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html
    5. typed: chmod -x /path-to-downloaded-run-file

    then I went on to disable nouveau kernel
    1. opened grub.cfg with gedit /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    2. searched for vga=791 and appended "nouveau.modeset=0"

    Then I rebooted..

    Next, after I've logged in, without typing "Startx" I did the following:
    1. cd /path-to-driver
    2. ./driver-name.run --kernel-source-path='/usr/src/linux'
    3. then the installation did its own thing
    4. then i updated the grub with command update-grub
    and then I rebooted again..

    When I tried to wrote startx, I was greeted with this:

    And I have also included the Xorg.0.log file in attachments..
