Good thinking, I was going to suggest a BIOS update to see if that fixes
it. Whats strange is that it was working before, and now its not. 1.4
doesn't actually make changes to your Hardware, so if you remove it and
go back to 1.3, it should be the way it was.

Also, I'm curious why the official 'nvidia' driver failed. Which one did
you try? Both the 9746 and 100.14.11 one should work with your model
card, I've run them both on 5200FX, 5500, 6200 and a few others without
issues. If you try both and they fail, we may need to let the guys over
at NVIDIA know about it here:


They are pretty good about getting fixes done, and then I'll incorporate
it into 1.4-release.
