Unhappy Problem with 5700 Ultra

I recently upgraded my video card Geforce 2 MX to a Geforce FX 5700 Ultra from MSI (FX 5700 Ultra TD128).

I've experienced various problems.
I've an Athlon XP 2000,
motherboard Gigabyte GA-7VAXP, 512 Mb,
distrib Mandrake 9.2
latest nvidia driver 5328

At startup after installation, Mandrake detected a new hardware, but it was not the right card name. The video test failed and X didn't start.

Back to console mode, I discovered that even the console mode doesn't work properly : I have no cursor and the screen line don't scroll up when it gets full (very hard to type commands or edit files).
I checked the XF86Config-4 : for me it seems ok. Actually, it didn't change from previous card.
I've no errors in the XFree log (no lines with (EE)).
I went to the MSI site to look for a new bios version, but there is'nt.
I tried both DVI and VGA connection with my LCD monitor, same thing.

I also tried running Knoppix (liveCD distrib), same prob.

I joined the message i've got on screen when I try to start X manually (this doesn't help much either).

Thanks a lot for any help.
