I believe that you're hitting a VBIOS issue here, and not a driver bug. Have you checked Dell's website for a VBIOS update for that card?

Ack. Well, there doesn't seem to be any vbios updates. Does nVidia have somewhere to download old driver versions? I'd like to go back to a driver I know was working before I spend more time trying to chase down this Video BIOS thing.

I assume that you're thinking vbios problem because of this line in the bug report log?

/proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0
Model: GeForce3 Ti 500
IRQ: 209
Video BIOS: ??.??.??.??.??
Card Type: AGP
DMA Size: 32 bits
DMA Mask: 0xffffffff

Old drivers are archived here:

The lack of a VBIOS version is not a problem. The VBIOS version is only present while X is running.

Thanks,

Okay, I've just compiled the 7676 version of the driver and it's working fine with my DVI connection. I think I even picked up a couple of hundred fps from the oh so scientific glxgears test. I'm attaching a bug report log, taken after a startx -- -logverbose 5.
Not using the latest version of the drivers is going to bug me, but at least this way I get my DVI output working again. Do you still think it's a video BIOS problem, even though it's working with the earlier driver version? If so I'll just live with it, but if it's more than just my defective card I'd like to help get it fixed.
