Post your XF86Config file as an attachment and someone can identify where the error is, what you have is a problem with the configuration somewhere.

/etc/X11/XF86Config

Default nvidia kernel gateway module...

Before starting X, type the following commands:
modprobe agpart
modprobe nvidia

When modprobing nvidia, you should get some noisy output.
Then use the following command:
lsmod
In the output of this command you must see somewhere nvidia. If not... it is useless to start X, it won't work.

Then start X.

Default XF86Config seems fine...

Nothing to say about your XF86Config file.
Did you load the agpart and nvidia linux kernel module before starting X???

Default nvidia kernel module?

...and about the nvidia kernel module?
Load it with:
#modprobe nvidia
Check that it is properly loaded with:
#lsmod
(you should see nvidia somewhere in the output of the command)
#startx
(you should check that you have also the 'assigne IRQ to VGA' set to yes in your BIOS, and also the "PNP OS" set to NO.)

thank I resolved.
the problem was in the agpgart: I modified agpgart_be.c setting 1 to "try_unsupported_chipset" because normally the via chipset of motherboard cannot was initialisated

then I install nvdriver, it work correctly.

please another question: when i play *.vob file(from dvd) the out is shown correctly but the faster movement images appears like striped (specially the contour).
did I change the video codec or more?

thank

P.S. sorry for my bad english
