Hi - I'm not sure if anyone there has heard of this, but I run my XP PC into my big screen and I noticed that the Nvidia boards I've used run at highly visible displays @ 720 right from boot-up, but NONE of the ATI boards do that. All I see with ATI boards are multiple images ob the big screen until the ATI drivers set themselves up. I can visually monitor the complete process on my secondary 17" Flat Screen monitor. This is true for all of the 'out-of-the-box' display cards I've used over the years. Do you know of any ATI boards that produce viewable displays @ boot-up?

It's the on-screen info from boot-up through to where XP starts and finishes with the operating desktop. With ATI cards, the display on the big screen is unreadable and I can make out at least eight repeated images, side to side. With Nvidia cards, the images are singularly distinct, as if you were looking at a photograph, or, in this case, the email you are reading. With Nvidia cards, this is true from the boot screen  completely through to the operating desktop.

Sounds as if you did not remove the old nvida drivers before changing video cards.

If that is the case remove them and do a reboot and then install the latest ATI drivers from the ATI website.


Boot screens should be the same for both cards.
