[kernel] GeForce MX420 lots of stability issues
|Reported by:||diver||Owned by:||rudolfc|
Recently I changed my noname GeForce4 MX440 with Albatron GeForce4 MX420 I've got all sort of random problems.
"(card A)" 10de:0181 (rev 02) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV18 [GeForce4 MX 440 AGP 8x] (rev a4) "(card B)" 10de:0172 (rev a3) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 MX 420] (rev a3)
Boot logo appeared with "Input is unsupported" message from monitor, though boot logo was just fine.
Several seconds later media_addon_server crashed.
Thread 144 called debugger(): Can't register system time source [Switching to team /boot/beos/system/servers/media_addon_server (144) thread media_addon_server (144)] 0xffff0102 in ?? () (gdb) bt #0 0xffff0102 in ??

Only Terminal and Deskbar have been loaded and ProcessController showed constant cpu loading.
I typed "top" in terminal and media_server and fxp intr handler (I have an Intel nic) both used 50% of cpu time.
With 1st (card A) I never saw this problems.
USB mouse didn't work, even after hot replug.
Also fonts looked a little better than with 1st card which i described in #2415.
Could this font corruption be caused by some combination of modern wide screen and old GeForce card?
Then I created new tab in terminal and at this point app_server freezed. I was able to access kdl via F12.
Then I rebooted and selected "Use fail-safe video" option, this didn't change anything.
When I switched (card B) with (card A), all problems are gone. Also surface of (card B) was very hot. Ubuntu is working stable with this graphic card.
