Just thought I'd follow through, as I've tried a million ways to Sunday to fix this and am still sitting at the same problem. I can modprobe the nvidia drivers now no problem. Setting up ACPI seems to have fixed my IRQ issue. However, when I start X I simply get a black screen and complete lock-up.

I've tried using the 'nv' drivers instead, but they always draw my desktop at 640x480, even though the screen resolution is set higher, resulting in huge black bands around the tiny desktop.

One intesting piece of info that may be totally irrelevant. I tried connecting an external monitor to my machine, which displays the error "resolution not supported" when I start X. What's more, it displays the H/VSynch setting, which appear to be abnormally high. (Something along the lines of 160 Hz for Vertical, which I know is beyond what my monitor can do, and an equally high for the Horizontal.) Just thought I'd include that info in case it's helpful in diagnosing this.

Anyway, I'm attaching my latest log file, and inlining my XF86Config as well. Thanks for any help!

# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
