Default MSI FX5200 DVI problem switching graphics->text mode


I have a machine with AMD64 CPU on Asus K8V-SEdeluxe mobo. Running Suse 8.2 with stock kernel 2.4.20-4GB-athlon.

Video card is MSI FX5200. Driver is .

Video BIOS rev. is:

Model: GeForce FX 5200
IRQ: 11
Video BIOS:
Card Type: AGP

Monitor is Viewsonic VP201m.

In effect, text mode is broken after using graphics mode.

When using the analog output, this problem doesn't occur.

Oh, the problem also doesn't occur when using another card, the Asus V8420s with

I have attached the XF86Config and log files pertaining to the FX5200 card.

Please try to fix this problem.
