This (in order), moves your current Xorg configuration to a backup

not to use the nouveau driver (you'll need to undo this if you ever
want to use nouveau) and creates a new initrd with nouveau excluded.
Let us know how you get on.

I am not sure as to how to do that.

It's just this series of 4 commands, run as root. (Don't enter the #
signs, they're just to mark the start of each line):

# mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup-20111202
# nvidia-xconfig
# echo blacklist nouveau >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf
# dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)

I am very sorry but it didn't work. I got the same read out results. I
uninstall the nvidia drivers and reinstalled them and tried it a second time
with no results.

Were there any errors reported while running those commands? Has the
machine been rebooted?
If you do
lsmod |grep nouveau
Do you still see the nouveau module?
lsmod |grep nv
Show the old nv module or nvidia?

I'm wondering if it's necessary to reboot between after adding the
blacklist line and before doing dracut. If you reboot and nouveau is
not showing up with the 'lsmod|grep nouveau' above, then it may be
worth trying the dracut line again. Also the new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
would be good to see.

Here is the results of your questions? I am very grateful to you for all your help. See attached.
