I just re-tried using: Option "NvAgp"
This time I exited X, then manually removed the agpgpart module and then restarted X.

Unfortunately, this still did not fix the black line problems.

Interestingly, I got the following output in my log files:
TRIAL 1: NvAgp=1
(**) NVIDIA(0): Option "NvAGP" "1"
(**) NVIDIA(0): Use of NVIDIA internal AGP requested
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize AGP
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1280x1024"
(II) NVIDIA(0): Using the NVIDIA 2D acceleration architecture

TRIAL 2: NvAgp=0
(**) NVIDIA(0): Option "NvAGP" "0"
(**) NVIDIA(0): Use of AGP disabled per request

Interestingly, when I leave out the NvAgp option, I still get:
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize AGP

I'm not sure whether that has anything to do with the fact that I remove the agpgart module before, but I still get the same message even when I manually re-install the module.

The net result is that no matter what I do, it seems that AGP is never working (even when I don't set it). I had never realized this and am not sure whether this has anything to do with the " black lines" problem.
