System freezes completely - RESET-Button only way out
three days ago i bought a nvidia 6600 GT (Gainward). As I was told, nVidia Cards should work nice and smooth and the linux drivers are of high quality...my system freezes when playing ET(Pro) with a resolution of 1280x1024@24bit. Although it is playable for a while it suddenly freezes the entire system. Nothing helps besides pressing the Reset button.
Cos I cannot log in with a second computer, I only could attach the relevant syslog part and the nvidia bug report log (file exceeded the 100kb, so i cut the part of usb mass storage)
I read about different solutions to system freezes yet on the forum - so i bought new power supply with 420 W - tried the acpi off and apm off at boot time RenderAccel is commented out in xorg.conf...
dunno what to do.
Besides that, I am using the latest Kernel available from the ubuntu servers and the latest driver 8178
I am using AGP FastWrite and SBA as described in the Ubuntu Forums:
alias char-major-195* nvidia
options nvidia NVreg_EnableAGPSBA=1 NVreg_EnableAGPFW=1
Though I don't think that this might be the problem.
I hope that someone can help me - havent found a solution yet to this on any forum
Thanks alot in advance
PS: Please tell me if any info is missing, that might help
