Hi everyone, I'm using an ATI Radeon X1650 8x AGP card with a Pentium 4 
board. When gdm is about to start X, I get a blank screen and  a totally 
unresponsive computer, no ctrl-alt-backspace or anything, and the 
monitor turns off because it is receiving no input. I need to hard reboot.

I just started using this new ASRock motherboard because the usb ports 
on my old motherboard were shot, but the 3D acceleration did work on the 
old motherboard.

Everything works fine when I boot with DRI disabled. These problems only 
occur when I try 3D.

I've tried several things, like switching between XXA and EXA, forcing 
PCI mode, bypassing gdm and typing X in a virtual terminal, adding no 
options to the device section, none of it makes a difference.
