Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration

Yes, I searched for this topic and found others with the same issue, but none of their solutions seemed to work for me.

I am running this all on a late 2008 Macbook Pro (first round of unibodies).

When I run startx, it fails, giving several errors, including "Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration"

The output to # lspci | grep VGA:

02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation G96 [GeForce 9600M GT] (rev a1)
03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation C79 [GeForce 9400M] (rev b1)

the output of the log file includes...

(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) Failed to load module "nv" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) Failed to load module "modesetting" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) Failed to load module "fbdev" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) [drm] KMS not enabled
(EE) VESA(0): V_BIOS address 0xd00 out of range
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration

I have nouveau installed, and I added it to /etc/mkinitcpio.conf then ran # mkinitcpio -p linux, rebooted, and still got this message. I'm not sure why KMS is not enabled, I thought that would enable it.

I've read that the screen not found message might be a result of me running nomodeset as a boot parameter, but if I don't have nomodeset, my boot fails.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Edit: Also worth noting that when I try to install the nvidia package, it fails
