Default Re: 8800 gtx - SuSE10.1 - Black screen on logoff and beep

Thanks a lot for helping me !

At the second i have put the 8800 in her pci port, the computer becomes very slow to
show the grub menu (40s), it tooks the same time when i'm booting on the linux install cd, 2sec otherwise.

My BIOS is 1.5 years old .. certainly too old, i'll update her if you think it's the only-way.

If i open a new fullscreen's console session from level 5, it hangs too (but i can switch
[ctrl alt F7] easily to the original graphique session)

The boot after each black screen let appear some "replaying transaction" - the system has really "crashed" (or its the fact of the manually extinction ?).

If I pushed on the power button, after the computer "crashes" and the manually extinction, but before the screen becomes totally black (orange screen-led), i've the black screen from the beginning of the boot, and green led on it, the screen auto-ajust itself at the beginning as if all was right.

OTherwise, what a card !! and a really good point for the disponibility of the linux-drivers and the xgl support for a brand new product - i was tired to wait, 18 month
after i bought my x800...
