Corruption (the strange chars) on the framebuffer, or even on text consoles, after X has started seems common with the mx440 cards. Searching the forum for posts regarding this shows several threads that discuss it. No real fix, but you could:
-compile the kernel without agpgart at all, no module to ensure it doesn't load first
-use Zander's patched nvidia drivers, check
-disable acpi and apm
