    first try to make it run on the nv driver.
    If it doesn't work then the card may be faulty.

    Also try to use an older kernel so you can use the older nvidia driver. (if you have an older kernel ie.)

    Also post the last few line of the xorg.0.log or xfree86.0.log.

    try removing these lines:

    Load "ddc"

    Load "glx"

    Load "int10"

    one by one to see if it works. (with the nvidia driver not nv)

    I had a problem like this long back but it turned out that the card was a victim of overclocking.
