Default X message "Failed to set MTRR 0xd8000000, 128M (write-combining)"

Hello, I just got X up and running and noticed upon exiting X, this error message:

"Failed to set MTRR 0xd8000000, 128M (write-combining)"

I also noticed that the (Gentoo) Nvidia guide mentions this issue and says to change the MTTR BIOS setting from continuous to discrete. I checked the BIOS, AwardBIOS, and I don't see any mention of MTTR in it.

When I do:

cat /proc/mtrr

...the 3rd entry does say uncacheable.

The video card is an ASUS V7700TI/32M (nVidia GeForce II TI) and the M/B is an ASUS P3B-F.

Thanks for any help,

Fej

Did you already tried to _flash_ a new bios on your board?

Yea...It's as current as it gets. Thanks though....ya know that makes me wonder...it is a beta bios...it seems they just stopped developing that BIOS at 1008 beta 4.

Thanks for the idea....I'll try to downgrade it.
