Is the display just blank, or does the monitor just shut off (power off, power down, whatever)?

I've been having a similar problem lately as well, but it only exisits with the Xfree86 provided "nv" driver for the nvidia chipset. When I hit 'startx', i see a few red lines accross the screen, and my monitor makes a high-pitched sound like something was out of range with the refresh rate. I have not been able to fix it, however, it works fine with the official hardware accelerated drivers from NVidia's website.

Which driver are you using?
