Default X won't start - P4 and MDK9.1

Fresh install of MDK9.1, X works ok with distro drivers. I installed the drivers and X won't start.
Hardware: P4 2.4GHz, 256MB RAM, shuttle AV49 motherboard, GeForce4 MX440 64MB.
System is Mandrake 9.1.

/var/log/XFree86.0.log has no EE errors. The last two lines are
NVIDIA(0) AGP 4x successfully initialised
NVIDIA(0) setting mode "1280x1024"

This is the correct size setting for the LCD monitor.
This hardware worked ok with MDK9.0 and the 4191 nvidia drivers.

When I try to boot into X, or start X from runlevel 3, the monitor just goes blank, and there's no response to the keyboard.

Any suggestions?
