Default Lockups when ripping cds or burning

I was wondering if anyone else was running a Geforce FX 5600 on linux? I am running mandrake 9.1 with the newest Nvidia drivers on a Athlon thunderbird 1GHZ machine with a ASUS A7V motherboard and 768 mb ram. My video card is a Asylum Geforce FX 5600 AGP with 256mb ram. The problem I am having is when I go to a rip a cd in Grip using grips builtin ripper after a few seconds of ripping my monitor goes into power saving mode and everything locks up and the screen is blank. I have all power saving features turned off in BIOS and I believe they are all off in the X config file. Also sometimes when I burn a cd it goes into power saving mode but does not lock up I just move the mouse and it comes back. Other than that it never goes into power saving mode just like it should. Any ideas? I have attached my X config file. I believe I have the cd burner problem stopped but I don't know why it stopped. But I still cannot rip without locking up.
