OK I know it's kinda hard to do it without guidance 'cause even slightest mistake will lead you to memtest only option lol.
You only need these packages

linux-headers-2.6.20-15-lowlatency
linux-headers-lowlatency
linux-image-2.6.20-15-lowlatency
linux-image-lowlatency

Make sure they are not removed and repeat steps I posted before.

and couldn't do the NvAGP to 0 because my screen will just go on standby then

The entire purpose of this exercise was to make all the changes that I requested, and provide a new bug report with all of those changes if you were not getting the desired result.
