Default nvidia error and server stuck

Trying to play a video, my pc (GPU 8500 GT) froze.
So I tried to switch to vt01 with no luck, so I had to reset it.

This is the error in /var/log/messages:
Code:
Apr 28 20:38:32 satanasso kernel: NVRM: GPU at 0000:02:00.0 has fallen off the bus.
Apr 28 20:38:32 satanasso kernel: NVRM: GPU at 0000:02:00.0 has fallen off the bus.

with the last line repeated many times, every 1 ms.


This is the error in /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

I'm running FreeBSD 9.0-STABLE, with nvidia-driver-295.40.

It seems also that, after upgrading to the last Xorg version available in ports and to a newer nvidia driver version (I don't know which one is causing that) switching to a vt doesn't always work.
Sometimes it works, sometimes the screen remains black and reports "NO SIGNAL".

Default Re: nvidia error and server stuck

I just want to add that I never had this kind of problems using 285.05.09 and xorg-server 1.7.7 (now it's 1.10.6).

As the first problem I've described (not the one I'm facing trying to switch to vt0[1-8]) happened when I started to play a video (can't test the same video right now to try to reproduce the problem, I'll do it later) could it has been caused by libvdpau?

I just had a xorg server crash(?)/hung.
What I wrote was just a dumb hypothesis from me, as it occurred exactly after starting a video file.

What about the error codes I reported?
I used to have problems like that (with similar error codes/msg) many time ago, but I thought they were solved as I'm not facing such problems since years.
