Default GeForce 7800 GS - black screen @ login

Hello!

# Here are the facts:

Ubuntu Hardy (fresh installed beta) (i had the same problem with gutsy so please don't tell me not to use beta )
GeForce 7800 GS (AGP) 1 DVI, 1 VGA
Benq FP767-12 Monitor (VGA only)
DVI to VGA Adapter (and of course a VGA cable)

# My Problem:

right before GDM should start the monitor switches to "no signal"..
i can hear the startup sound, but there is nothing on the screen.

When I connect the monitor straight to the VGA output (without the adapter) i don't get an image at all.. (before booting.. @ bios..)

OS nv driver is working but slow as hell.

Here is my log and my xorg.conf for nv and nvidia.

I hope someone can help me :/
