Default Intermittent Lockups: F7, onboard GeForce 6150 (A8N-VM CMS)


I wonder how to set the memory size of the onboard graphic card on my A8N-VM CMS (with 1007 beta BIOS, 1001 had even worse issues with a lot of "Tainted:" and lockup whenever I run anything with wine... 1007 is working much better in this regard.)

I set it to 128 MByte in the BIOS BUT when I run nvidia-settings (as well as in the logs) it says:

VBIOS Version:
Memory: 512 MB

I don't understand how this can work reliably... it should be showing 128 MByte.

I have tested the memory with memtest86++ and it cleared things with flying colors (2*1GB + 2*512MB)

No Oops nor Aiee in the messages log... nothing in the Xorg.0.log indicates anything abnormal either.

The latest crash had a blue vertical line going through the screen at about 400 pixels from the left edge and the rest of the picture looked as if the green and red had separated and it all looked vertically striped.

The temperature of the computer was around 33 deg C and was just using the USB at the time of crash (CPU load was maybe 5%)

Oh yeah its a "AMD Athlon(tm)64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4800+"

and yes I am using the onboard raid system.
