Try a startx >X.log 2>&1 to create a file named "X.log" in your current directory, with the output of the server. After it freezes, wait a while (until your disk is synced, so you don't lose too much information) and reset (if you have to), then post the X.log file here. It might not help, but then again, it might point to the problem.

Also, knowing the contents of /var/log/XFree86.0.log might help too.

I'm having the exact same problem on an Asus A7N266-C based system. (I posted about it 2 days ago.) I have a second system that is IDENTICAL except for video card (Geforce 4 Ti vs GeForce 2 MX) and bios revision. One works perfectly, the other frezes on startx.

The one that works has bios 1.001E, the one that freezes has 1.03. I haven't tried the brand new 1.04 bios to see if it fixes it.
