hey all. i know there's a lot of posts on poor video performace but I've been searching a long long time and tried a whole buncha stuff. Basically I have a sony vaio laptop with a geforce 4 mx in it. I used to be able to play quake 3 at about 400 fps with low graphical settings. since then i've reinstalled gentoo and switched to xorg. now i get about 70 fps. it's terrible. here's a bunch of info on my setup.

glxinfo
Code:
direct rendering: Yes


i have the driver set to nvidia in xorg.conf
in the module section dri is commented out and glx is loaded.
nvagp is set to 1.
i am not using antialiasing or anisotropic filtering.

Code:
cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/*
Fast Writes:     Not Supported
SBA:             Not Supported
AGP Rates:       4x 2x 1x
Registers:       0x1f000007:0x1f000104
Host Bridge:     Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS 645xx
Fast Writes:     Supported
SBA:             Supported
AGP Rates:       4x 2x 1x
Registers:       0x1f000217:0x00000104
Status:          Enabled
Driver:          NVIDIA
AGP Rate:        4x             
Fast Writes:     Disabled       
SBA:             Disabled


i know fast writes and sba are disabled...but they don't allow that in my BIOS. totally sucks. but that shouldn't be the problem because i used to play on same hardware/bios at a much faster rate.

dma is also on for my harddrive. so that's not it.

i have MTRR in my kernel. agpart is not in my kernel.

the permissions are set fine on /dev/nvidia0

thanks for any help.
