I have a GF Go7600 on a Compal HEL80 notebook with Ubuntu Edgy 6.10 and 9746 nvidia drivers, and I'm experiencing random freezes when I try to play a video with VLC. The mouse cursor response is very choppy and the screen gets pretty garbled. After about 30 seconds, everything goes back to normal.
While surfing the web, sending email, even running glxgears, everything works flawlessly. With Ubuntu's default driver (nv) everything works smoothly.
On bootstrap, I get the messages:
[17179570.100000] PCI: BIOS BUG #81 found
[17179570.204000] PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 7 of bridge 0000:00:1c.3
[17179570.204000] PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 8 of bridge 0000:00:1c.3
I have read the Stability problems thread and added the options pci=nommconf and idle=poll with no luck (the CPU is a dual-core Intel Core2 Duo T7200). I have also looked for updates for the BIOS and applied them, with no luck.
I'm attaching my nvidia-bug-report.
PS: I'm getting quite the same problem under Windows XP Pro SP2...
Please help me
Thanks and good day
