    I've got an OLD radeon 32mb card.

    it works great as a secondary card for dual monitors.

    but if you try using it as the main video output, I get garbled blocks of color on the screen instead of anykind of display. both in BIOS and XP/Linux.

    what's going on with the video card?

    :hs:

    I've tried every possible driver (both official and unnofficial) and I'm still getting this wierd problem: video's fine when using it to run a second monitor, but when using the vid card to run only one monitor I get garbled blocks of color.

    are the two different monitors running at two different resolutions?
