Red face My machine freezes at the first boot

I'm experiencing a stange problem that when my machine boots up for the very first time, it will freeze when it attempts to load X.

I have GeForce4 MX 440 w/ 64M. If I configure the system to boot into console, it works fine for the very first time. However, if I attempt to startx, the same problem occurs.

When the problem occurs, I have to reset the machine to give it a cold reboot. After the reboot, everything will be fine, no matter how I launch X, either thru startx or xdm.

I'm using driver v1.0.6629 and the /etc/X11/xorg.conf reads

   #       Please note that NVIDIA's internal AGP support cannot
   #       work if AGPGART is either statically compiled into your
   #       kernel or is built as a module, but loaded into your
   #       kernel (some distributions load AGPGART into the kernel
   #       at boot up).  Default: 3 (the default was 1 until after
