Default 8600gt, Ubuntu and DVI

Hello, this is my first post in this forum.
I have a problem in Ubuntu with my MSI 8600GT OC.
I use the DVI connection between my video card and the monitor.
When I install the Nvidia restricted driver, I can see the Ubuntu splash start screen, but after that, my monitor turns black ( it says "NO SIGNAL"), and I can't see the desktop. I know the desktop is loading, since I can hear the start sound.
If I go to console mode (CTRL + ALT + F1), I can see the text console, but if I try to return to graphic desktop, my monitor turns black again.
When I use the analog connector between my video card and my monitor, it works fine, but I don't want to use analog.
My computer is:
Asus M2N-E Sli motherboard
2 GB of ram
MSI 8600GT OC video card
Audigy 4 Pro soundcard
Xerox XR6 monitor, 1440x900

Thanks in advance!
