Default Re: Trying to make headway into finding the Xid crashes source...

If it wasn't so sad, I'd find it hilarious that the nVidia AGP driver fails on an nVidia nForce2U based board.
BTW, with Xids do you get?

The AGP seems to be one aspect of the problem:
A. Disabling AGP doesn't work on all cases. (Mine for instance.)
B. The nVidia driver is unstable on PCI-E machines. (Which AFAIK should behave just like a normal PCI)
C. If Saulzar is indeed correct, then we are talking about what-seems-to-be a timing problem; Turning off the AGP just reduces the chances of something blowing up, but does not eliminate it. (Which should explain the PCI-E devices failing like their AGP counterparts)
