Exclamation nvidia 8600gt "no decoder detected" problem

H1 all.

What I have at the moment :

ASUS GeForce 8600gt pci-e 256 mb
FreeBSD 6.3-Release i386 SMP
Intel DP35DP Motherboard

What I have done:

Have run different versions of freebsd distributives, such as 6.2-RELEASE, 6.3-RELEASE, 7.0-RELEASE, trying different versions of xorg and nvidia-driver (from ports & packages), and just no success, X server totally freezing the operating system, and only chance is to hard reboot. Xorg "nv" & "vesa" started as they should. But I wanna use 3d, cause videocard is very good to go.

campat5x is up and running

modules:

Code:
atta-pc# kldstat

 1   10 0xc0400000 7b2d2c   kernel

 3    1 0xc0bd2000 692bf0   nvidia.ko
 4    1 0xc1265000 5c304    acpi.ko

Default Re: nvidia 8600gt "no decoder detected" problem

As a first step, please install the 177.81 NVIDIA FreeBSD graphics driver release. If the problem persists, please generate/attach an nvidia-bug-report.log file.

Default Re: nvidia 8600gt "no decoder detected" problem

Also I can add that my videocard have 262144 kBytes BUT in xorg.log and bug report I see that driver sees 524288 kBytes. Its really odd.

Can anyone help me ? When a new driver (or fixed) will be released ?

Unhappy Re: nvidia 8600gt "no decoder detected" problem

So, finally released 177.82 driver for FreeBSD x86 systems, but the same "memory" problem persist. Can someone help to do a thing that can help this driver to "see" my videocard memory size ?

Xorg.0.log last message is "setting mode 1280x1024".
