Re: NVIDIA GeForce FX5200 Linux Driver

I had a similar issue with a nvidia FX5200 AGP card. I looked for answers at
nvnews.net forums. In my case, I believe that there was a bug in my BOIS
perhaps that is exposed by later versions of the nvidia drivers. I have a
Dell 400sc, which is a server machine. Dell says the AGP slot on this box is
"not supported". I bought a PCI FX5200 and the problem is gone.

I suggest you update your BIOS to the latest available version first. If the
problem still exists, try to set the AGP speed to 4x or 2x in your BIOS. Not
all BIOSs allow you to do this. You could also try compiling the nvidia
drivers to use AGP 4x or 2x. I can't remember exactly how to do this, but if
you search the forum at nvnews.net you should be able to figure it out.

Or try disabling AGP altogether as a quick test by setting NvAGP to 0
in xorg.conf.  If that doesn't help, then reducing the AGP rate isn't
going to help either.
