Question Problems with nVidia TNT2

Hi there,
I've got a RIVA TNT2 and seems don't work properly...with X server running and also in console I've got lots of gray lines...

I tried to ran it on Mandrake9.0 with very poor resoults, even if I've patched the kernel with the NVIDIA source packets...

I've then upgraded the kernel version from 2.4.19-xx.mdk to a standard on (2.4.20) with same, bad, resoults.javascript:smilie('')

I thought to upgrade the SO to mdk9.1, same problems.....!$*$%'javascript:smilie('')

Actually the machine is running Slackware9.0, with kernel patched OK with NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run pkt, and I still got problem....(and won't change OS another time!!!)

The interesting parts of my XF86config-4:
Load "glx"
Identifier "NV AGP"
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "RIVA TNT2"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "DPMS"

Warnings on XFree86.log are:
(WW) Open APM failed (/dev/apm_bios) (No such file or directory)
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Not using mode "1024x768" (height 1536 is larger than
