Default Mandrake 10.1 problem

I just installed Mandrake 10.1 on my computer and after many hours I managed to get the nvidia driver 6629 installed and kind of working. Once I got the driver installed and working I restarted the computer. The problem now is that when the computer starts Xorg does start but seems to crash. It comes up and I see the Nvidia logo and then it changes to the blue background. But part of it is black (see attached image) and I dont get a logon window or anything like that. The computer seems to lock up at this point too I can move the mouse but thats about it I have to hit the reset button. I think it might have something to do with my monitor? System specs

Dell 2005FPW Widescreen LCD (Native res 1680x1050)
2.4Ghz P4 + HT
Asus P4P800 Deluxe
Geforce 6800GT (by XFX if that makes any diffrence)
160GB HDD (4 partitions), 80GB HDD, 13GB HDD (linux is installed here)
Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS Gamer
1024GB DRR400

Anyhelp would be great its driving my crazy.
