Default Mandrake 9.1 & GEForce 3 TI 200


I have trouble after upgrading from Mdk 9.0 to 9.1 (i upgrade 2 other systems without any problem).
The colors on the screen are very strange and, when i change the parameters in XF86Config(-4) i can't see any change on the display. I try many things :
- upgrading with the last nVidia driver ;
- changing parameters in XF86Config (when i choose svga driver - not nvidia - i can see the true colors but the resolution is poor ;
- i check all the stuff in the nvidia's README file (modprobe, files...). The only difference i can see is the /dev/nvidia* files : on my system, only the "0" and the "actl" are created (no nvidia[1-4] files) ;
- i do a screen shot of whith knsapshot and when i see this snap on a Windows laptop or on another Linux machine i see the right colors ("nVidia" in blue, not in yellow, "1.0-4363 Archive" in blue, not in dark red, the waves in blue, not in yellow/green, and so on...)
Any idea on this strange (for me) behaviour ?
Before i upgrade from Mdk 9.0, i do not have trouble with exactly the same hardware...
Thank you in advance for your help...

System: Dell 8200, GeForce 3 TI 200, Dell 1702FP (digital connection), NVIDIA Mandrake kernel (2.4.21-0.13mdk), 1.0-4363 driver
