In addition to Charles' advice, I would say two things: First the
driver's name is "nvidia" not "nvidea" like you wrote twice in your
post.  Perhaps you spelled it incorrectly in you xorg.conf as well. 
Second whenever you boot in rescue mode the program asks you if you want
to mount the filesystem.  It does so under /mnt/sysimage or something
along those lines.  You can either chroot to that directory or just edit
/mnt/sysimage/etc/X11/xorg.conf.  Again I'm not 100% sure of the
directory's name, but it will tell you if you mount the root filesystem.
