I can't offer anything to fix this problem, but the PCI device ID of your card isn't listed as supported in the NVIDIA README:

(II) PCI: 01:00:0: chip 10de,0252 card 1545,0037 rev a3 class 03,00,00 hdr 00

Code:
...
  o GeForce4 Ti 4600             0x0250
  o GeForce4 Ti 4400             0x0251
  o GeForce4 Ti 4200             0x0253
...
This seems rather odd, are you using an engineering sample of some kind? Also, did you contact NVIDIA directly about this problem?

That is strange. Linux has the pciid as a Ti 4600.

I'm not sure where the card came from. I bought it from e-bay. But, it does look like that could be the problem.

I sent e-mail to linux-bugs@nvidia.com, but I have not gotten a response.

I wouldn't trust the Linux/pciutils PCI ID databases as reliable sources for this kind of information; judging from the XFree86 log file, the fact that the chip name can't be identified is only part of the problem, the fatal error is even stranger than the PCI ID. Does the card work with the Windows drivers?

Yes, but I had to install them by hand (probably from the pci problem). But, once they were installed, they worked fine. (And, they think it's a geforce4 ti4600 too)

I have also successfully flashed several versions of BIOS w/o problems.

Default I'm working!

So, given the above information, I FIXED my card!

Basically, I modified the linux kernel to change the deviceid to 0x0250. (It probes the device id, then if it's 0x0252, it populates the dev entry with 0x250)

So, when the nvidia driver asks what the pci id is, the kernel responds 0x250! Woot!

Thanks so much zander for pointing out that pci device id discrepancy.

And, thanks to all the Nvidia folks that helped out. Oh yeah . . . none of them did.

No problem, it's good to hear you got it working.

Default Re: Unrecognized card (last resort

I got the same problem, but I am not very familiar withthe linux kernel source. Can you please post a patch or the sourcecode necessary for doing this? Thanks.
