Default Re: Why won't nvidia driver "see" geforce 8400 gs pci card?

The card is a Sparkle SF-PC84GS512U2LP.

I'm attaching the bug report file. I should also add the computer (running Mageia 1), has a motherboard based video card that the Bios doesn't let me disable, however, the nouveau driver got around that just fine. - just for reference.

Thanks for your help!
In your xorg.conf under Device add

BusID "PCI:2:0:0"

and see if it works
