    I have a Presario 5441 with an AMD processer and an onboard SIS 530 video card. I've tried to install an ATI Rage 128 but without much success. I've disabled the SIS from the device manager, switched over the display adapter, and changed the BIOS. But I checked in Compaq Diagnostics and it's still using memory that overlaps with the ATI. End result: the information goes through both cards and it locks all the time.
    Anyone have any ideas how to fix this? I emailed Compaq and the best advice they could give me was to write an Assembler batch file. I know Perl and some C but Assembler makes my head hurt.
