Default X crashes at startup, from time to time

Hi

I've set up a PC for a friend based on a Gigabyte GA-E7AUM-DS2H (nvidia 9400M chipset).

Every once in a while, after a reboot (usually if machine boots without any screen connected) X will fail to start.

Looking at the log ;
you see that X crashed just after you have an error like:

(EE) *** Aborting ***
(EE) NVIDIA(GPU-0): Failed to allocate EVO DMA push buffer

What is this ?

Could it be a faulty motherboard?
RAM passed memtest86 ..

Thanks
Jean-Yves

This issue happened on a Ubuntu 8.10 (interpid) machine.
Upgraded to Ubuntu 9.04 (jaunty) same problem.

What's weird is that I use the exact same PC at my place without issues.

The only difference is the project he uses
