Yep, I've found your posts which at least let me know I wasn't doing something completely wrong.

It's disappointing to me that nvidia isn't responding to this issue or at least pointing out the error somewhere else that's causing the problem.

How do I configure it to go into pci mode? I thought that was one of the NvAGP settings, and I have tried 0-3 there with no luck. Of course, slow 2D at max res would not be very nice. As it is, with the nv driver it isn't *bad*, but I picked an nvidia powered laptop so it would be fast.

Oh well.
