Default System Hard Lock with 9476 and 8800 GTS

I have been having a serious problem the last week with trying to get my 8800 GTS working in ANY distro of linux. I first installed Gentoo (which I am more comfortable with), and no matter what I tried I couldnt get it to work. Using portage to install the 9476 drivers would result in X starting but GLX failing to load. Using the Nvidia installer would result in a hardlock of the system with only a black screen.

After reading the guides http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...highlight=9742
and
http://doc.gwos.org/index.php/Latest..._Edgy#METHOD_2

I decided to try teh Ubuntu. I followed the directions in both guides multiple times and never recieved an error, all the log files look good and from what I can see the driver installed fine. But low and behold I still get a hard-lock with a black screen with starting X. The machine locks up to the point that I dont have Numlock response and I am unable to SSH in from another machine to run nvidia-bug-report. I have attached the nvidia-installer.log, Xorg.0.log, and my system logs.


Ive searched this forum and every other forum I could find for someone who was experiencing my same problem, but I couldnt find someone who had the same symptoms as me. If you can help in any way possible, thank you very much.

This is a known bug in 1.0-9742, which was resolved in 1.0-9746.
