Don't use latest pv-ops dom0, pls try below xen, qemu and dom0 version which
was tested and worked for Geforce 8400 GS passthrough with my sent patches:
Xen changeset: 20143
Qemu commit: 0fdbb469
2.6.18 dom0 changeset: 844
We didn't test with GeForce 7600 GS, if you still failed on above environment.
It's possibly the card is specific and needs extra hacks to make it work.

7600 GS on Intel 5520
I'm not sure which issues I was having when I tried to use changeset
20143 a month ago, since I was able to check out changeset 20143, and
apply the patches successfully when I tried again today. Weird. I
applied the same patches that Mr. Teo En Ming listed in his email
http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.emulators.xen.devel/71101. They all
applied cleanly. So, I'm now running what should be the same setup as
Mr. Teo En Ming from what I can tell, except that my vBar-pBAR patch is
for my machine, and I'm using the latest pv-ops.
I succeeded in creating an XP HVM guest, but I can't get the drivers to
work. When I boot XP, the console output for dom0 switches to the
second graphics card, and any console output messes with the display
output. I don't know if this is an issue, or merely a nuisance. Once I
install the NVIDIA drivers and reboot, it reverts back to 640x480, 16
colors, and the device manager reports that the device could not start
(Code 10). So, that's not working. Any suggestions on what to try or
lspci -vvv on a Linux domU still reports the same problem with the
expansion ROM as before.
