Hello,

I just bought the ATI 9800 to play games that require a better video card. I followed the limited installation instructions without success. The new worked fine during boot up (VGA mode I think) the the screen goes blank instead of showing the Windows XP boot screen. Some boots the screen would be blank others it would show hundreds of little colored rectangles.

Two possible problems I suspect are that I had no clear way of disabling the onboard video card (S3). Since it does display the initial boot screen I doubt this is the problem. The other possible problem is that the new card is defective or the AGP slot is bad.

How do I get this to work or determine what is bad?

Thanks,

Conatus
