Comment (by kris):

 Sounds like it may be a bug in the nvidia driver with this particular card
 model, especially since it fails the same way with the manually compiled

 Can you try these things though?

 First, boot to the console and run "nvidia-xconfig", does it create a
 /etc/X11/xorg.conf file or fail with an error?

 If it works, can you post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file it created?

 When you try to start X, does any other odd messages show up on the
 console (Ctrl-Alt-F1) or "dmesg"?
