Well, as I posted above: I get Xid: 24, L2 -> L1 in some cases, but I don't have any problems with this. Really bad is this: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...149#post566149
No solution,too.

EDIT: Seems that windows users have similar (the same?!) Problem: http://forum.gainward.de/viewtopic.php?t=721

EDIT2: Seems really to be a problem with clock speeds! Read this: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=47053

Maybe you try to fiddle with your clockspeeds...

Well it seems this is a bug with the BIOS of our cards. I have the latest bios from http://www.mvktech.net/ for my card (eVGA nvidia FX 5900 Ultra). I was thinking of flashing a 5950 onto it since I read they are pretty much the same and I havnt actualy read of anyone having a problem. In the post you linked to about the 6800U PCIe one person said they edited their BIOS, how did they do this? Since 2D and 3D modes are the same for him now what effect does this have? This seems more like a BIOS bug now then a driver bug. Im holding off sending it into nvidia till I learn more.

Hmm, maybe, but th nvidia guy who answered to my bugreport said, that these Xid things refer to driver internal errors (-> maybe the driver can't handle the different modes correctly?).
You could try to flash a 5950 Bios, some time ago I did that too, but the card got slightly slower, since the memory timings of a 5950 are a bit slower, so I flashed back to the nvidia reference Bios, found on mvktech. Maybe I will give my original Asus BIOS another try, because this one didn't have different modes, it was always fullspeed! You could try one of the Asus Bioses on mvktech instead of the 5950 bios.
I don't know if you can edit your Bios under Linux easily. For Windows there are some special tools. But if you know what you're doing this should also be possible with a common Hex Editor. But don't forget to grab some PCI VGA card

Even though I do know how to code I know nothing about Hex editing. On linux there are many programs to do it such as khexedit. Anyway I dont have a spare card to do it on so I dont think Id want to do that. Ill write a bug report to nvidia and see what happens.

Well that's up to you...
Maybe I will try my Asus BIOS when I come home. This is much safer than playing around with khexeditor
