let me guess, ur BIOS is newer than 3129 ??

I can not get into xwindows and do not know the version of video card:confused:
the driver in RH9 works well but I can not use openGL,so I install the new driver released by nvidia

I really need help:eek:

bahamot 04-21-03 08:45 AM

i mean ur mobo's BIOS, not ur VGA's BIOS

But my video card works well when using the default driver provided by RH9??It is the upgrade of the driver cause the problem.
what's mobo? mobile?:confused:

Motherboard.

Epox 8RDA+ (at least; perhaps other Epox motherboards) BIOSes newer than 3129 all have this problem with the nVidia drivers.

You don't see it with the default RH driver because the default RH driver does not try to access the video hardware nearly as much as the 3D accelerated one does.

1000% agree :)

workaround: downgrade to 3129 BIOS

thanks a lot:angel: ,I will try to downgrade my bios
oh, I have spent two days on this driver and will still get lost without your helps
my motherboard is Epox 8RDA with C1 support
