I am having great trouble with a FX5700LE TD256 that I just bought from ebay.
I Installed the card, ran the latest nvidia installer, modified xorg.conf and then started x.
Lots of small dots on a diagonal pattern on a black screen.
I changed the xorg.conf file to driver "nv" and all was well the card worked but no 3d. I then installed mandrake 10.1 on a spare partition, installed the driver, modified xorg.conf and modules.preload, startx, lovely splash screen, doom3 installed, lots of shooty bang bang fun.
So I know the card works.
Checking /var/log/Xorg.0.log gives me
(EE) NVIDIA(0): FAILED TO MAP FRAMEBUFFER MEMORY
Does anyone know what in Slackware 10.1 is causing the problem
