Hi, thanks for the reply

Is that reason to hard freeze the machine? I'll check the monitor manual
and set manually the refresh settings for the monitor.

I added the HorizSync and VertRefresh to the correct values present in the
monitor manual. Removed Glcore and dri and made sure glx is enabled. I also
tried to set NvAgp to 0 (just in case) and still the same result: green with
black strips screen + hard crash on the machine (keyboard locks don'tt
answer too).

Any more tips on this one?


I'll be where you're at in a few hours (need to backup Linux data and install FreeBSD on desktop) -- I just bought a 8800 GTS too.

        We'll see what happens..

        Any error messages on the console or Xorg.0.log though?
