10.0 and Nvidia drivers=white char in bash after exiting KDE please help


HI all!
I need a little help sorting out something, well I have geforce fx5600xt and I installed the latest NVIDIA drivers from the site(also this is a fresh install of Mandrake 10.0) Well their running correctly In KDE but when I try to log out into bash or use the Bash prompts F1-F6 My display shows all this random white charracters everywhere. Can anyone help me on this? I will also post my XF86config file here. Maybe I should go back to Mandrake 9.2 atleast in 9.2 I installed the drivers without a hitch

Also I can't seem to get my TV to work when I twinview it into file(note I took the settings out after they didn't work) so is their any way as to make it so both are used differently ie like higher resolution on mointor while their is a lower resolution on the tv? Oh and it NTSC-M for the info

Thanks for your help
