Default Quadro NVS 285 System Freezing

I have a Quadro NVS 285 in my Dell Precision with FreeBSD 7, Xorg 7 and the nvidia 173.14.12 driver. When I try to startx, even with just using the nvidia-xconfig and X -config /path/to/xorg.conf 99 times out of 100 it will hard lock the system. I say 99 times out of 100 because out of about that many times booting the computer, I have actually gotten X to start and saw the black and green splash screen (albeit with some green artifact lines, indicative of a bug somewhere). X ran just fine with the exception of some weird drawing problem with the cursor, but that was something I could live with. I tested GLMatrix screensaver and it ran flawlessly so there was definitely acceleration going on. I'm kind of at wit's end and would like to see if anyone can offer advice as to where to go from here. I'm going to try the two legacy drivers to see if they offer any help to my problem.
