Default NVIDIA m/gpu 8200 type mobo NIC support

Hello,

I've recently bought a cute little Acer X3200, it's compact size would make a good FreeBSD server. However I am stuck getting the NIC to work.
It is virtually impossible to detect the exact hardware in this system but pciconf learned that the NIC was nVidia.

Using kldload to load either nfe or nve does not work, the card does not show up in ifconfig. I've also tried the second option using ndisgen and the winxp drivers, this also produced nothing.

These are the various installations I've used: 7.0-RELEASE (amd64, i386) 7.0-STABLE and PC-BSD 1.5

Anyone got any useful tips? dmesg output and pciconf outputs can be arranged.
