Question Freezes in Ubuntu 5.10 and OpenSUSE 10.1

In both systems, when i install the driver for my card (GeForce 4 MX 440), the system suffers from freezes. I am still able to move the mouse around. There is HDD activity through the LEDs in my case. But everything else is frozen.

My PC is a Celeron 1.2 GHz with 256 MB SD-RAM. I tried both the latest driver and the legacy driver (for IA32). The problem still exists.

I need help!

If you need any logs or something, just tell me what commands should I write because the system freezes randomly and the only way to resolve it is to cut the power and I don't want to do that too often so that I won't harm my hardware.

P.S. I am a Linux newbie!

Can someone help me, please? I know that this is a common issue. I have searched the forums and came without any satisfactory results.

I got Dell Inspiron 5150, Intel 3.06Gh HT. For me also system crashes if I install "NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8762-pkg1.run" and even after applying "NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-8762-1544019.diff.txt".
Is it possible to get some old nvidia drivers to install until nvdia release some update?
