i have a gforce 8500 GT and i had crashes also with 295.33. Crashes like - the whole pc just completely hangs or just reboots. I never had something like this befor with nvidia drivers (doesn't mean the driver was perfect before
) but the last working version was 290.10. Most of the time the error gets triggered when i use mplayer with vdpau enabled and tvout enabled. When the system doesn't crash while i use X11, most of the time when i exit X11 i don't get back to the console instead my tft goes into power saving mode and i can only shutdown the pc with the power button (acpid is running).
