Default Re: X freezes (mouse still moves) with PCI NVidia graphics card

Just thinking about the long thread about X hanging but the mouse still moves.

There might be some incompatability between the AGP/PCI interface chip on the nvidia cards and the controller chip on the motherboard.

Here is what does and doesn't work for me:

NVidia Card in 5.0V PCI slot with nv driver = FINE
NVidia Card in 5.0V PCI slot with nvidia driver = FREEZE
NVidia Card in 3.3V PCI slot with nvidia driver = FINE

Motherboard Tyan S2720
