Very strange picture after installing latest Nvidia drivers for GF MX 440
 
I have SuSE 9.3 and Ge force MX 440.

I've installed drivers from Nvidia site. After changing "nv" to "nvidia" in xorg.conf the video output looks very strange. I have a picture of that, but can't post links.
I used sax2 to configure video system sax2 -m 0=nvidia. This worked fine and I can start X, but when I switch to another runlevel, for example 2, I see distorted, strange picture. The same with virtual consoles ALT+CTRL+F1.
SuSE text modes uses framebuffer or how to call that thing. Without starting X there is a background picture in console, characters are smaller than normal. This is good, but it refuses to work now.
The picture is black&white, considers of big pixels, that are constanty moving. When looking from distance at the screen, its possible to see characters and some elements of SuSE background picture. I can write commands, but it's not possible to see, what i'm typing.

Try an older nvidia driver. As they bring out new drivers, nvidia remove support for older cards.
