This might (probably) has nothing to do with your problem, but I offer 
it as food for thought.

I once had an AGP Nvidia card that would *not* work stable at 8X AGP 
(even though it was supposed to support it.)

Unfortunately, with the design of the nvidia drivers, the only way to 
force it down to 4X was by editing the source.  The procedure was well 
documented in the nvidia documentation, but still *way* beyond the call 
of reasonable for most end users.
