Hi all.

I just got a new PC with Vista (32bit) on it. Unfortunately there was a major problem with the display. Whenever it finishes loading, (green Knight Rider thing) the display would go dark but you can hear the Vista jingle. The monitor doesn't go into standby so it is receiving a signal. If you leave the machine to go into standby, then wake it, you are greeted with the password screen and can continue but that means waiting half an hour.

I've solved the problem but with a not-so-ideal solution. I'm using Microsoft default VGA drivers instead of the Radeon X1300 Vista 32bit drivers which seem to cause this problem. Obviously, with this solution, running games is impossible. Google Earth can't even run in Direct X mode! :eek:

If anyone knows of anything which might help it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time.

SanFranCrisko.

Are you using the latest version of the driver?

Be sure to run the driver install as Administrator if UAC is on.

It could also be a problem with the chipset drivers(PCI-E or AGP) for your motherboard.
