Default Random kernel freeze on 64 bit Fedora 14 ... Intel i3 530 + GeForce GS 9600

Hi

I am experiencing random kernel freezes after installing the latest Nvidia linux drivers.
I cannot even ssh to the machine after it has freezed and even the keyboard lights do not respond to numlock/capslock, so i am assuming it is not just a Xorg freeze but a kernel freeze.

As suggested by the sticky thread and some other thread on the freeze issue, i played around with some combinations of the following kernel parameters, which did improve the freeze to about 5-10 mins from mere seconds, but the freeze keep happening.

pci=nommconf idle=poll maxcpus=1 clocksource=hpet acpi=off pcie_aspm=off

The freezes are general and not limited to opengl or vdpau usages. It has happened for things as simple as opening nautilus for browsing files. ( The last one happened in between typing this message )

I am attaching the nvidia-bug-log.

Bump..
I have the same problem with maximumdecimus there.
My hw spec: P8600 + Quardo 770m,
reviewing Xorg log after each crash doesn't giving me any helpful information,
and I have no idea what to do next to debug the problem

I have attached the bug report.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I actually forgot about my post here ... Turns out ... I finally got it to work and its been stable now

"pcie_aspm=off" in the kernel parameters does the trick.

I might have messed up something when I posted that freezes keep happening with "pcie_aspm=off"
Sorry about that

Hope this helps ...
