there is a bug in the binary part of NVIDIA-drivers version 100.14.11 and
100.14.19. Try to switch back to 100.14.09, this is working with no problems.
The freeze is appearing at 64-bit systems and mostly Nvidia 7300 cards.
Just take a look at the bugreports and the discussions at the nvidia homepage.
