Default GT220 on Ubuntu Lucid, can't restart X

Interesting issue I'm having.

So I've got a motherboard with an onboard 7050 GPU and a GT220 in the PCI slot. I've got Ubuntu Lucid with all the latest packages.

Upon initial boot everything loads fine, but if I, say either kill Xorg or stop gdm and then try to restart X I can't.

I get the following in my dmesg log:
<code>[ 1717.483473] NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x12:0x2b:1671)
[ 1717.483482] NVRM: rm_init_adapter(0) failed</code>

and this in the Xorg.0.log:
(EE) Jul 25 11:45:01 NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device
(EE) Jul 25 11:45:01 NVIDIA(0): Please check your system's kernel log for ad

everytime X tries to start

I've also tried installing the newer 256.35 via a PPA repo, and the "stock" 195.36 driver from the standard Ubuntu repo.

This is driving me a little crazy so I'm hoping someone here knows what's going on...
