nVidia and PS/2 conflicts?
PNY GeForce FX 5200 (128MB, AGP)
Epox EP-8RDA Mobo (nForce2 chipset)
Maxtor 40GB HD
old Quantum Fireball (1.5GB) HD
2 optical drives
After manually setting the IRQ of my video card in the BIOS, I can now use the "nvidia" drivers, with one very annoying catch: there has to be a mouse plugged into the PS/2 port.
This is not a problem with XFree86, as using drivers=nv works fine. With the nVidia drivers, though, the machine just locks up - no kb LEDs, etc., unless my mouse is plugged into the PS/2 port.
It is not that having a USB mouse screws it up - it will work fine with a USB + PS/2 mouse, but take away the PS/2 mouse, and nothing works - even takeing away both mice crashes it.
The log file leaves no errors, and the XF86Config file works fine for the nv drivers, and works for nvidia drivers with a PS/2 mouse (even though the conifig file doesn't contain /dev/psaux).
This is really weird, and really annoying. Could anyone help me, please? As I haven't configured the modem to work under Linux (though I have tried), it is a little more time consuming to post my files, though not at all impossible.
Again, no errors (grep EE /var/log/XFree86.0.log) in the log file, and the config file works fine otherwise.
Is my hardware defective, my BIOS settings wrong, or nVidia's drivers screwed up?

Very strange indeed. Are you running the nvidia drivers for the nForce mobo as well as the video?
I would definitely tend toward saying its a mobo oddity or configuration, but as I don't have one I won't, I'll only guess.
Might have to do with the agp hangling, which is different when the nvidia driver kicks in than nv.
