Default Re: "screen frozen, but mouse pointer moves" bug

I get this problem also, both with the 5336 & the 6106 drivers. I do not get
the problem when I have a gf4 mx440 in the box, only when I have an fx5700 installed.

Ditto

See my previous post, with detailed system specs, etc:

The post was made before the 6106 drivers were released, and my 5700 is still
gathering dust on the bench, with no change to my situation other than the badness in pci
message going away with the driver update. The card model I have is a Leadtek
Winfast FX5700 A360 VIVO, and it unfortunately works flawlessly in xp.

Oddly, but perhaps specifically unrelated, two of the many times the system froze, my
mtab was corrupted.
