Default Re: Nvidia 6200 and ATI RS480/482 chipset incompatibilities

Hey ScatterBot, it's not just you or your setup: I have an HP a1310n whose Asus AMD64 motherboard has the ATI Technologies Inc RS480 Host Bridge (rev 10). Kernel is 2.6.15 custom compiled with (gcc version 4.0.3 20051201 (prerelease) (Debian 4.0.2-5)) #1 PREEMPT.

I get these results:

- Borrowed FX5200 card (PCI bus) runs perfectly; no crashes in a month, including dozens of hours of videos, etc.

- Just bought an Asus 6200TC card (PCI express bus) and it crashes just as yours did. glxgears will kill it every time -- sometimes in a few seconds.

Of course, any help, tips, workarounds, etc. would be appreciated. I'd hate to have to return this otherwise great card for a darned Radeon!

Update: It generally lasts for a few minutes while watching videos, then hangs...but sometimes when it hangs, it seems to get stuck in a classic loop - even with the playing of endlessly repeated sounds(!).
