Maybe I have made some mistakes with
my hardware configuration (in the BIOS) maybe?
NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M is represented as using PCI Express x16
Quoting Wikipedia on the basis of the whole
"The Nvidia Quadro series of AGP,
graphics-cards comes from the NVIDIA
Would the fact that it is a
mobile GPU make a difference? According to the reference table on
Wikipedia, I found my card again stated as being PCI-E.
chip: NVS 140M
Core clock speed (MHz): 400
speed (MHz): 600
Memory size: 128 MiB/256 MiB/512 MiB
Memory bandwidth: 9.66 GiB/s
Max. power consumption (W): 10
3-pin stereo connector: Varies
I did some digging on information for the
NVIDIA 8400M-GS to turn up this:
And again from
GeForce 8M Series
On May 10,
2007, NVIDIA announced the availability of their GeForce 8 notebook
GPUs through select OEMs. So far the lineup consists of the 8200M,
8400M, 8600M, 8700M and 8800M series chips.
It has been announced by nVidia that some of their graphics chips
have a higher than expected rate of failure due to overheating when
used in particular notebook configurations. Some major laptop
manufacturers are making adjustments to fan setting and firmware
updates to help delay the occurrence of any potential GPU failure. In
late July 2008, Dell released a set of BIOS updates that made the
laptop fans spin more frequently.
As of mid-August, nVidia is yet to give further details publicly,
though it has been heavily rumored that all or most of the 8400 and
8600 cards have this issue.
GeForce 8400M Series
The GeForce 8400M is the entry level
series for the GeForce 8M chipset. Normally found on midrange laptops
as an alternate solution to integrated graphics, the 8400M is
designed for watching high definition video content rather than
gaming. Versions include the 8400M G, 8400M GS, and
8400M GT. While these GPUs are not oriented for high-end
gaming, the GDDR3-equipped 8400M-GT can handle most modern games at
and is suitable for occasional gaming.
Both sources do not tell what the bus interface type is,
so again I am relatively confident I am using a PCI-E video
Can I submit any data or additional information to
assist in getting my video card compatible with the 2.6.32 branch
kernel for use as a dom0 machine?
