Default X doesn't start with GT240M and kernel > 2.6.31

I'm running Gentoo Linux. Laptop is Asus N61Vn with nvidia GT240M.

I got the laptop for over 6 months, everything was working fine up to kernel 2.6.31-gentoo-r10 and nvidia-drivers-190.42-r3 (included).
Got the problem when i upgraded my kernel to latest gentoo stable version aka 2.6.32-gentoo-r7.
I tried upgrading my nvidia-drivers but it doesn't work either, only thing working is returning to my old 2.6.31 kernel.

System hang 5 second after i try launching X, it become unreachable even with a ssh session opened from my desktop to my laptop before crash. Error is "NVIDIA(0): WAIT: (E, 0, 0x857d, 0)" in my Xorg.0.log.

PS : i got almost the same config (system and hardware) on my desktop except card is GT240 instead of GT240M, no problem on it.
