Default Re: My screen shutdowns when I use nvidia driver

You can try changing the resolution after GDM starts with a combination of keys:
LCTRL LALT and the "+", or "-" on you numeric pad to respectively increse/decrease the resolution of the screen.
Maybe there's just something wrong with your xorg.conf, or your hardware (monitor probably) and because of that X sets a wrong res, and/or the refresh rate.

Try fixing the resolution with that key combo and post an nvidia-bug-report if that helps.
Or post the nvidia-bug-report after this "crash" occurs. Log-in via ssh, copy the report and post it from another computer (if that's possible of course!).

@promeneur Have you tried a different (newer) driver? 9629 for example?
Are you using the latest BIOS with your motherboard?
