Question System Freeze after exit of X with Nvidia

Just installed gentoo from CD. Installed Xorg, installed Nvidia Drivers, and configure X. Ran startx got the nvidia logo, X came up and everything was looking good. But when I try to logout or shutdown X by any means the system freezes, the monitor goes blank, and the keyboard will not respond. Now if I switch to the NV drivers X works fine but when I exit the monitor begins to flicker and is covered with white vertical lines the make the text unreadable.

Iím using kernel 2.4.26 on an Insprion 2650 laptop, geforec2 Go. Xorg is version 6.8.0 and nvidia drivers are 5336.

This is my Xorg.conf

Code:

We all ought to try the latest drivers before reporting problems. Gentoo has its own way of installing the drivers btw.

Yeah forgot to mention im on a ship in the middle of the Gulf and I cant download new things. I have what I have to work with which luckily happens to include the latest official Nvidia driver. how ever when I install those the system locks up when I start X instead. I give up.

Don't give up just yet. You have logs to check, and a different NvAGP value (refer readme) to try.
