nVidia Graphics Drivers, GeForce FX 5200, Asus P4S8X-X Problem - Solution
I think I've found a confliction between the nVidia driversm the GeForce FX 5200, and the Asus P4S8X-X Motherboard.
You see, when you boot X under the nvidia driver, the screen would be a garbled load of nothing, and the system would totaly hang.
Since I spent weeks trying to get the nVidia drivers to work by playing with stuff on the software end, someone suggested to play with the BIOS. I changed the AGP speed from 8x to 4x, and disabled fast write (not sure which setting did it), the driver worked.
Just thought I'd share the solution, in hopes someone out there might be able to get their card working. Enjoy.
