I just got some weird problem with nvidia-drivers/X.org

In normal use (browsing with Firefox) my computer suddenly hanged completely. Only mouse cursor was moving randomly, and all I could do was hard boot.
This happened again next day, and after that my X.org 7.0-r1 / nvidia-drivers died completely. When I run startx, whole shit hard locks and screen becomes black.
I tried upgrating my kernel, nvidia-drivers and X.org to 7.1, but any of these didn't have any kind of effect.

I didn't do any kind of updating/conf changing before this happened, and all my configs are perfect, working stable about half a year.
WTF might cause this? It seems to be hardware fault?

X works with nv, but it's not really usable.
I have GF4 Ti4200 with Zalman passive cooler, it runs pretty hot (not too hot to touch at idle) thanks to my 15krpm SCSI drive between graphics card and fan.

No I'm not.

As I said, it worked flawlessly for half a year, then suddenly hanged and stopped working without reason.

Now, after a world update my machine is OK again!
libwnck and kdelibs-3.5.5-r3 are me attracted attention.

So my problem is solved.

I got my problem solved too!

I added Option "NvAGP" "1" into my xorg.conf
Weird, I remember that it was enabled before, but maybe my config was corrupted in lock-up or something.
The reason for hangins is still unknown, maybe I'll find it later. And GLX isn't working, but that's different thing.
