I also suspect the problem coming from ASUS motherboard and PCI-E
graphic card.

ASUS A8N-VM Socket 939 motherboard.
GigaByte PCI-E card, GV-NX66256DP2
Nvidia 6600 PCI-E

The motherboard has an onboard graphic card.  I may not disable it
correctly.  Its manual/BIOS setup does not provide detail instruction
on disabling onboard graphic card.  I'm now searching for advice and
information in this respect.
