Default 7300 GS freezes X

Hello,
I have a new 7300 GS (Gigabyte). Im running Ubuntu 6.06 and have the problem that the x-server freezes frequently when I'm usig the original nvidia driver (installed by adept/Ubuntu). Using a generic driver (no glx) works fine.
Is this a known issue or probably a hardware related problem (so I should return the card)?
I'm using latest K7 Kernel and nvidia-glx 1.0.8764.
Thank you!

Does this problem reproduce with the 1.0-9625 BETA driver release? If so, please generate/attach an nvidia-bug-report.log file (see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46678).

I will try the beta driver this evening. However, is there a possibility to exclude a hardwaredefekt?

I can't rule it out given the information you provide, but I'd say it's fairly unlikely. Does the nv driver work (it's not clear if that's what you were referring to as a generic driver)?

yes, no problems with the nv driver (what I called a generic driver).
Using the nvidia driver causes non reproducable freezes, for exaple while scroling in firefox, starting kontact and so on. On the other hand most of the time I can start "glx applications" like tuxracer, work with kontact, firefox, [...] without any problems. Yesterday I worked with a new installed (nvidia) driver without any freezes but today my wife called me at work and told me that the PC freezed after logIn and starting kontact.
Using the nv driver is no problem for me (I don't realy need 3d within Linux). What I want to avoid is that my new video card is broken.
Apart from this I would like to solf this problem also if it's a software related issue but first I want to be sure that there is no need to return the card.

As far as I understand your answers (and the other threads I've read) the card (GPU) should work?! So maybe it's best to replace this card by another (same GPU) and see what happens.

Please provide more information about your system (see the URL I referenced earlier) and check if the problem reproduces with 1.0-9625.

I'll do this in a few hours when I'm back at home (I'm currently at work). Thank you so far!

Using the Beta-driver prevented the X-Server from starting. I've attached my log-File. The log-file was created while the nvidia driver was not installed (Im currently using the nv driver).
Attached Files
File Type: log nvidia-bug-report1.log (97.7 KB, 127 views)
File Type: log nvidia-bug-report2.log (60.0 KB, 105 views)

Please generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log which captures the failure.

Thanks,

According to your bug report, you're using the 1.0-7174 driver which does not support the GeForce 7300, and is also no longer supported.

If this problem persists with the 1.0-9625 driver, please generate and post a new bug report.

Thanks,
Lonni

This may sound like a stupid question but: how do I get rid of this 7174 kernel driver? adept tells me that I do have the 1.0.8762 nvidia driver installed. I do not have any idea where I got the 1.0.7174 driver from.
