Default X freezes with FX5200


I encounter an occasional lockup in X with the nVidia FX5200. This usually happens when I play a video (with any of the players available for MDK, such as totem, mplayer etc.)
It seems that my PC is still running: the mouse pointer moves, and USB LEDs are on. Unfortunately the keyboard doesn't function, except for rebooting with ALT-Print Screen-B.
I am running MDK PPack 10. official, with the stock kernel. The hardware is Athlon 2600+, 512Mb,ASUS A7V8X-X (VIA KT400 chipset.) The driver version is 5336 (kernel, and the driver section in XF86Config is as follows:

Section "Device"
Identifier "device1"
VendorName "NVidia"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce FX (generic)"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "DPMS"
#Option "IgnoreEDID" "1"
