This may not exactly fix your problem, but there is an option to disable the splash screen using the nvidia-settings utility that comes with the official drivers.Registered Linux user #270181

This is a known problem with the "6629" drivers. I have the same issue, also with Slack 10.1 and 2.6.10. It seems to especially effect the MX series. See this for a lot more. You might want to attempt dropping back to the "6111" driver. Please post back if you are successful getting 6111 installed. I've read that others have, but it keeps telling me I have the wrong kernel source, although I point it right to it and it is the right one. Nvidia says they plan to have this fixed in the next release, whenever that is...

i always got the nvidia splash screen on bootup untill i did this; in /etc/X11/xorg.conf under ' Section "Device" ' i added Option "NoLogo" "1"
Identifier "Card0" Driver "nvidia" VendorName "nVidia Corporation" BoardName "NV20 [GeForce3]" BusID "PCI:1:0:0" Option "DPMS" Option "NoLogo" "1" # this disables the Nvidia splash screen

i misread the question, i thought he was asking to get rid of the splash screen rather than the fact it froze at it. try this instead
Option "NvAGP" "3"
"0" (uses no agp support)
"1" (uses nvidia agpart only)
"2" (tries kernel agpart only)
"3" (tries kernel agp first, then nvidia agp)

just another thing to add; there's a whole selection of options for the nvidia drivers to add to xorg.conf, the address is
scroll down to the section titled ' (app-d) APPENDIX D: XF86CONFIG OPTIONS ' to see them all

Thanks Krendoshazin. I tried the:
Option "NoLogo" "1" # this disables the Nvidia splash screen
...and although it makes the nvidia logo go away, it is replaced by a black screen without any way to enter the DE. I'll look over that options list, but since this is a bug nvidia is working on, it may be we'll just have to wait for the next release.

perhaps /var/log/Xorg.0.log will shed some light on the problem, it contains all the messages from X like this;
(II) NVIDIA(0): AGP 4X successfully initialized
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1600x1200"
(II) NVIDIA(0): Using the NVIDIA 2D acceleration architecture
