Thanks to everyone who responded to my request.
It took a lot of rebooting and tinkering but I eventually got everything
working again. Disabling COMPOSITE initially did not work (X would not
start on the display) so I went back to my last working configuration,
renamed xorg.conf and xorg.conf.d, then generated two fresh xorg.conf
files using nvidia-xconfig and nvidia-settings.
Both files were very similar with a few minor differences. I manually
merged the two and came up with a somewhat clean xorg,conf (I've dumped
everything into xorg.conf for simplicity - nothing in xorg.conf.d for now).
Long story short, after many reboots and commenting/uncommenting one
line at a time, Option "COMPOSITE" "Disable" seems to have resolved the
tearing problem and
ForceCompositionPipeline=On/ForceFullCompositionPipeline=On needed to be
removed as it caused the black screen problem.
I've posted my xorg.conf file here in case anyone is interested:
