Does disabling AGP help?

Add
Code:

Option  "NvAgp" "0"
to your XF86Config file.

i added your settings for the AGP, and something new happened : now, thereis no more blank screen...
there is the standart command line with a superb black background, and at least 8 colors!!!
i tried startx,; and it shows something strange :
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): ***Aborting***
(EE) Screen(s): found but none have a usable configuration.
Fatal Server Error:
no screens found
XIO: Fatal IO error 104 (connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining

I joined the copy of my XFree log here

That's the standard, catchall error message - just about anything can cause it. Did you install via the installer? If so, can you post a copy of /var/log/nvidia-installer.log?

Yes, i installed the drivers from the 43.49 .run package

here is the log u want
I just had a look into it, and it seems ok...

!!!!
 
I tried again, and i decided to let the blank screen for sometimes..
after ~3-5 minutes, kde finaly loads up!!!
but now, how can i make it boot faster?
5 minutes is, i think, quite a long boot time!!!
but chromium, tux racer, and all mesa test work fine!!
