Default X doesn't not launch if HDMI cable connected before computer turns on


I'm trying to get X working with nvidia drivers but i get this error :
NVIDIA: could not open the device file /dev/nvidia0 (Input/output error).
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device PCI:0:16:0. 
(EE) NVIDIA(0):     Please see the COMMON PROBLEMS section in the README for
(EE) NVIDIA(0):     additional information.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device!
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
I can launch X with "vesa" driver, but not with "nvidia" nor "nv". My mainboard is a Gigabyte GA-73PVM-S2H with an embedded GeForce 7100/nForce 630i chipset. I'm running Gentoo Linux with latest kernel 2.6.23 and latest nvidia drivers. The bug-report is attached.

Please, can someon tell me what's going on ?
