    I just installed a Geforce FX5700LE video card into a Abit KG7 mobo with
    latest bios. and am having problems with both Windows XP and Linux
    (X-Windows) both being very unstable but when I chaged the AGP setting in
    the bios from 4x to 2x I was able to get things to start, but after running
    for awhile it crashed, nothing in the logs says what happened. I have the
    latest Nvidia drivers from Debian Sid and the latest Windows XP drivers from
    Nvidia, and before this card I was using a Geforce 3 Ti4200 which ran great.
    Anyone have any ideas, I read in the release notes for the nvidia drivers
    that there is a known problem with the AMD Irongate chipset and AGP speed
    and that it will only work at 1x, but this does not make sense since I was
    running the other Geforce card without any problems for almost 2 years.
