Even though I asked tis question twice, I did not get a single
response. No-one even bothered to ask me for more detail. On my Dell
Latitude x300 I had a similar problem but on the 855GM-chipset. The
problem seemed to be related to apci_video loading boefore agp and
somehow attaching to the video card, and blocking agp from attaching.
Or something like that.

Your problem might not be the same, though.
