    Umm.. try running the latest drivers?

    (All usual disclaimers about binary modules apply. If 7167 doesn't work for
    you, bug NVidia (Zander is usually quite helpful with providing patches) and/or
    check the NVidia/Linux message boards (there's a link on the NVidia driver
    download page).
