The log shows that your card is NV17 model.
I own the same and I know that the latest version that
works with it is 96.43.05.
You actually don't say that you are using 173.14 drivers,
you say that you are using the library from 173.14...

Taking parts from one driver and putting it in another
would surely lead to problems.

Next time read bugreports.html what is needed for debugging.
