    I am trying to install an ATI rage fury 128 pro graphics card. When I finish installing it, my monitor goes nuts. I get three(3) of everything and my Icons have no color(show white) I have a CTX monitor which works fine with a 3D Yamaha card. Can anyone help me with this ? Is it the Monitor, the card, or what? I have downloaded the latest drivers for the card. Until I did that I just got a black screen on the monitor. I realize this isn't the greatest card in the world, but I don't want to spend a lot of money on another card and find out it won't work either. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    First thing to check is does your mobo support it.

    Also, check with ATI to see if they have updated drivers. ATI cards are pretty good, but their drivers are notoriously buggy.

    Thank you for your help. I downloaded a driver for my monior. Then iwent to registry and deleted all references to ATI. Reinstalled the card and the drivers, and, guess what, everything worked. Now I know if I want, I can get a better graphics card. Am going to use this one for awhile, however, as it is at least 3 years old and this is the first time I have been able to use it. This forum is a really big help to an old codger like me. Thanks again.
