Default 1600x1200 fails w/ GeForce Ti4200

I have a GeForce Ti4200 w/ 128MB running on Gentoo Linux with a 2.4.20 kernel.

I *FINALLY* got the darn thing to "startx" without throwing garbage ASCII at me.

Problem: I can't get it to start with 1600x1200 resolution.
It starts at 1600x1200, and the mouse keeps working, but the rest of the system freezes.

Now, I know you are saying "dammit newbie, your monitor doesn't support the resolution!" or something along those lines...

Here's the catch:
This is the exact same system that I was running 1600x1200 on prior to the install of an Epox 8RDA+ Nforce2 mboard. Previously, I was running a Soyo KT400 Dragon Ultra. So, I KNOW the card and the monitor can handle it.

The only other change that was made was to change from using agpgart, and use NvAGP "1" in the XF86Config file.

So, I am not sure what information anyone would like to see and rather than spam everyone with possibly useless config info, if anyone thinks they can help, I will post whatever you would like to see...

btw, it starts in 1280x1024 just fine. Also, I noticed in the XF86 log that the highest "NVIDIA validated" mode was 1280x1024... not sure why that would be either.

Thanks for any help you can give a brutha'...

You mention NvAGP working at 1280x1024 but have you tried AGPgart at 1600x1200?
The new motherboard may not play nicely with NvAGP at higher resolution.

I did actually. I saw some posts that mentioned success with agpgart (with the latest Epox 8RDA+ bios revision). I re-compiled the kernel with agpgart and set NvAGP to 2 which I guess tells it to use agpgart.

Same problem.

Oddly enough, /proc/drivers/nvidia/agp/status says disabled, with or without agpgart.

But, the XFree86.0.log says that AGP is initialized successfully at 4x.
