Default Re: 7050PV support?

Here's hopefully another piece of the puzzle. I was playing around in the BIOS trying to get the nvidia driver to work. I set the framebuffer manually to 256 MB (was previously on auto). The driver failed with the same error I mentioned above, but the X server's error output told me the framebuffer was 524288 kilobytes. When I set the framebuffer to 16 MB in bios, I got the same error message but the X server error output tells me the framebuffer is 128 MB (131072 kb). For some reason, it seems the nvidia driver isn't getting the proper framebuffer size from the bios. Hope this helps figure out what's going on here.
