8600M GT 10de:0407 not supported ?
 
Hi,
the last versions of the driver do not support my pci-id 10de:0407 (8600M GT Acer)
But the card is seams listed as supported. Is it posible to get the card working ?

Code:

  nvidia 0000:01:00.0: setting latency timer to 64
  NVRM: The NVIDIA GPU 01:00.0 (PCI ID: 10de:0407) installed
  NVRM: in this system is not supported by the 185.19 NVIDIA Linux
  NVRM: graphics driver release.  Please see 'Appendix A -
  NVRM: Supported NVIDIA GPU Products' in this release's README,
  NVRM: available on the Linux graphics driver download page at
  NVRM: www.nvidia.com.
  nvidia: probe of 0000:01:00.0 failed with error -1
  NVRM: The NVIDIA probe routine failed for 1 device(s).
  NVRM: None of the NVIDIA graphics adapters were initialized!

lspci -v shows

I'd like to point out that driver versions 185.18.* are newer than 185.19; perhaps trying the latest driver may fix this?

If not, hopefully somebody else will chim in, since this isn't really my area.

It looks like the GPU's first PCI base address register was cleared by system software. The GPU is supported, but the driver won't be able to work unless the GPU's PCI resources are properly configured.

You can try fixing the above manually via:
# setpci -s 01:00.0 BASE_ADDRESS_0=0xf2000000
However, it's best to determine who modified the register in question in the first place.
