Smile [Solved] Black screen after installing 260.19.12 driver on 8400GS in kernel 2.6.35

Yesterday I tried installing the latest driver for linux namely 260.19.12, after typing startx the screen goes black and the power button of monitor keeps flashing , as if it has entered suspend mode.But i can switch to another text console or terminate X by ctrl-alt-backspace to go back to the terminal.This happens with both linux kernel 2.6.35 and 2.6.36 and every 260 series drivers i.e 260.19.04,260.19.06,260.19.12.Currently I am running 256.53 driver with xorg-server 1.7.1 on 8400GS.

I am attaching the file generated by as per forum guidelines.

As this is my first post in the forum, if i have missed any other critical information - please tell me and I will post it immediately.
