Default Gentoo, Linux 2.6.9, Nvidia Geforce4 440 Go, Xorg 6.8.0

Hi everyone,

I recently got a HP Pavilion zv5383EA and have installed gentoo linux on it. I'm having a problem and I can't tell whether its Xorgs fault or maybe its my graphics card?

Basically I installed Xorg 6.8.0 and that went fine, I startx and that also is fine. No problems. However, when I quit X to go back to command line my screen completely messes up. It fluctuates. Thing is, I can still type and get linux to do stuff, just the monitor stays in a loop of being messed up.

Has anyone got any ideas as to what the cause may be? Solutions? I have tried with both the default drivers and the 6111 nvidia drivers but with both the exit has the same results.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
