More importantly, what does lsmod show? You have terminal output so the
card is working (hence nothing new in lspci). if the nouveau (Mesa,
F/OSS) or nvidia (proprietary) modules are not loaded...
for clues. Did you update the kernel just before you lost the X
display? If using the proprietary binary nvidia blob, the kernel module
is tied to a particular kernel version/release. After kernel update, you
have to recompile the nvidia module kernel interface.
Ubuntu and derivatives have a nasty habit of automatically updating the
kernel on a whim, resulting in the death of proprietary drivers.
