Default Problem with nvidia driver and GeForce 8800

Hi,

I installed nvidia driver with guide on arch wiki.

But unluckily when i typed "startx", my monitor lost signal and i dont have any other option then restart computer.
This is not for the first time when it happened. I have exactly same problem in every other distribution.

I have GeForce 8800gts and LCD monitor Samsung SyncMaster 204b.

And there isnt problem with hardware because in MS Windows or with VESA driver it works fine.

Here is mine Xorg.conf

And bug-report

http://www.blankpage.ic.cz/nvidia-bug-report.log

Please, have somebody any ideas how to make it works?

When you have no picture after startx, just press Ctrl-Alt-Backspace to get back. No need to restart.

There are no modes (resolutions) defined in your config file. Maybe you skipped a section in your guide or it somehow went wrong.

It appears that X is hanging in your bug report. Have you verified that you're using the latest motherboard BIOS?

Does this problem persist with an official kernel.org kernel as well?
