Having some issues with my video card and nvidia drivers:

1. If I use nvidia-glx-175, the CPU goes up to 100% without any particular reason. It only goes down when I reboot the computer several times

2. If I use nvidia-glx-180, the CPU stays normal, however compiz randomly crashes and I receive a segmentation fault on libpongo in my log files.

3. I tried downloading the drivers from the nvidia site, but if i use them, X won't even start.

I'm using a NVIDIA 9600M on an Intel Dual Core processor; 4gb ram; Intrepid (8.10)

thanks in advance for any help.
