Default nvidia error and server stuck

Trying to play a video, my pc (GPU 8500 GT) froze.
So I tried to switch to vt01 with no luck, so I had to reset it.

This is the error in /var/log/messages:
Code:
Apr 28 20:38:32 satanasso kernel: NVRM: GPU at 0000:02:00.0 has fallen off the bus.

with the last line repeated many times, every 1 ms.


This is the error in /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

I'm running FreeBSD 9.0-STABLE, with nvidia-driver-295.40.

It seems also that, after upgrading to the last Xorg version available in ports and to a newer nvidia driver version (I don't know which one is causing that) switching to a vt doesn't always work.
Sometimes it works, sometimes the screen remains black and reports "NO SIGNAL".
