I was following: “http://www.ctkarch.org/documentation/tutorials/tuto.php?page=nvidia-blob.xml&en”. I glanced over: “mkinitcpio -p kernel26 #or linux if you updated” by accident. The second time I typed everything correctly after I found X11 would not start, even with the command “startx”; error details are below.

(EE) NVIDIA: Failed to load the kernel module. Please check system’s kernel log.
(II) UnloadModule: “nvidia”
(II) Unloading /usr/lib/drivers/xorg/modules/nvidia _drv.so
(EE) Failed to load module “nvidia” (module -specific error, 0)

Fatal server error:
    no screens found

The computer is new and hardware has been rigorously tested.

Thanks for the help beforehand!  :)

I am new to Linux. I have found out the hard way that things need to be done super precisely. Even when you know what you are doing, time consuming problems could occur. It looks like I am in a position where I could be reinstalling, if I screw this up again. After all, I am unable to access my desktop, which does not make me feel comfortable.

I would appreciate it if I got an experienced users precise method(s) for reversing my situation.

To be patient.
I can't answer you, so while you wait for big boss aka Calimero answer, search on internet and ask on other forum.

What is the result of "more /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep nvidia"?

Have you updated your installation? In that case, you should not type "mkinitcpio -p kernel26" but rather "mkinitcpio -p linux" (the # stands for a comment and what comes after it in the line is ignored when you type it)

Try modprobe nvidia.
