I believe you are having this problem because you have 4G ram, I am having the same problem... others are reporting this too. Just for test pull out 2 gigs and try nvidia driver + X. Also you may check your bios and toggle memory remap option (if exist).

Thanks for info!
I switched Memory remap in BIOS to off - and vualya, nvidia driver work in FreeBSD with 4Gb ram.
But i lost 768Mb ram (amount onboard ram on 8800GTX) in Vista and MacOS (both 64-bit).

You need to disable your memory to 2GB, run 64 bit FreeBSD, or put this in /boot/loader.conf:

machdep.disable_mtrrs="1"

I am now experiencing the same problem for days now and I am so angry because I have tried search the net for better solution and I am glad that you have given me ideas.. I will try to follow your suggestions and I will let you know if it is effective... One more thing a friend told me that it also has the same effect when it comes to other drivers.

I switched to 2 Gig Ram, still, not seeing the whole memory capacity.. Still, a great workaround for the problem..

When you say that your Nvidia driver hangs machine do you also means that it also automatically reboots the computer?.. I am experiencing that right now and I don't know what to do.. you see I am not an IT expert and I am planning to call for an expert but before I do that I want to have some clue on what is happening to my PC.
