Have you checked the nvidia driver loads by typing as root :

modprobe nvidia

then starting X again with startx (or init 5) and see what you get if you haven't already ?

This isn't in your original log -- what did you do to make it come up?

If you're not using Driver "nvidia", you cannot have Load "glx" up in the Modules section of your config file, unless you completely uninstall the drivers.

Does disabling AGP help at all? What hardware is this happening on? (motherboard chipset, video card manufacturer, number of processors, etc.) Are you using DVI by any chance?

Ok ..

I reinstalled Mandrake 9.1, the last driver of NVidia for my GeForce MX440 64MB.

The result is the same. Stranges characters on video.

I send the XF86Config-4 and XFreee86.0.log about this problem.

Thanks

what's your motherboard?
if it's an epox 8rda+ then u might need to downgrade ur BIOS to 3129
any BIOS higher than that, won't work with Nvidia Linux driver

Can you try disabling AGP? Add
Code:
Option  "NvAgp" "0"
to your XF86Config file to turn AGP off.
