You might perhaps be facing a problem of newer drivers within FC4.  You seem
to have a decent set of hardware.  Why don't you try FC6?  I have a spare
FC5 DVD that you can borrow, or an FC6 DVD that you can borrow for a *short*
time.  You might still need some proprietary drivers.

If you want the DVDs, contact me on my email ID.
