whoa! Please dont say that. She is my beloved machine. Moreover it works fine in Windows.

Could you suggest any tests that could be done in Windows to confirm this issue?

Sorry, I'm not familiar enough with Windows to recommend anything.

I'd like to see a new bug report generated with NvAGP=0.

Also, have you verified that you're using the latest motherboard BIOS?

Oh, yes sure. I will post it.

About BIOS, this motherboard was phased out long ago in 2003. . So what I am using right now is the latest stable BIOS available.

I have attached bug report for 1.0.9643.

Also I found this error in nvidia-installer log.

echo; \
echo " ERROR: Kernel configuration is invalid."; \
echo " include/linux/autoconf.h or include/config/auto.conf are
mis
sing."; \

Could it matter here?

No, what warning is harmless if the driver installed successfully.

In your bug report, I see a large number of these errors:
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Error recovery failed.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Error recovery failed.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***

Have you tried reducing the ATP aperture in the BIOS?
Does this problem persist if you're not using the TripleBuffer option?

So you want me to reduce AGP aperture size in BIOS? And disable Triple Buffer in xorg.conf?

old story

these errors were introduced in 9625beta-october 2006 and they're still not fixed (one year passed...w00t)

status:
1.0-8776 works fine
1.0-9625beta corrupted screen/hard lock
1.0-9742beta Installer warns me that my video card is not supported by the driver, yet i did not see anything mentioned in the Changelog, and the README says my card is supported. Loading the module would yield a similar error.
1.0-9629/9631/9639/9643: logo + freez or if i move the mouse i might get it to enter into GNOME/Xfce, but the screen is corrupted, after a minute or so, X will crash back to a screen corrupted GDM, Xid errors, w/ or w/o composite

see dedicated thread (it gets interesting from page 7)

@rahuljawale: your only chance is driver 8776+patch
the patch is needed for the driver to compile on newer kernels.
it works, at least you'll have a working driver (no Compiz/Beryl, but OpenGL/composite)

hey Licaon, thanks for the information. I had came across this magical 8776 and the patch for newer kernels. But since going by the info you provided , 8776 seems to be the only way out. But man, it's sad to know that i cannot use Beryl/Compiz. That was the main motive for me to install Nvidia drivers. Anyways. Will give it a shot and let you know. Moreover there are few more like me who have been facing this trouble.

Here is the link to the thread that I came across:
GeForce2 0x01a0 & 96.43.01 works badly

One question before leaving, why isn't NVIDIA fixing this issue?

Licaon, I tried that. But at nvidia-installer throws up an error whenever i try to run patched installation. Error is:

rahul@rahul-desktop:~/Desktop/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8776-pkg1$ sudo sh nvidia*
nvidia-installer: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected

nvidia-installer is a binary executable, not a shell script. Just run "sudo ./nvidia-installer".
