My setup:
OS = WinXP pro
Vid = asus Radeon 9800XT pro
Mobo = asus KV8 Deluxe (for athlon4)
Machine Hardware = Athlon64 3400+

Group,

Some times on bootup, and it seems to be happening more often, I get
my initial login screen but with some kind of strange overlay or
corruption.

The overlay consists of columns of bars about 1 1/4 inches long and
columns that strech full length of monitor. About 8-10 columns wide.
Columns have about an inch of space between them. Something like:

====== ====== ====== ====== ====== ======
====== ====== ====== ====== ====== ======
====== ====== ====== ====== ====== ======
[...]

Its transparent but opaque enough that it makes doing any thing
impossible. Usually a full stop/restart sequence is required to make
it disappear. A reboot usually doesn't do it.

And sometimes even a full stop/restart and it still shows up for
several cycles.

Mobo is the Asus KV8 mobo for athlon64.

Any one have a clue what might be the cause of this?

I aqlso have the same card and used to get that same problem. I would
reboot and it was gone. I haven't had it for a while. Also i don't use the
Asus software. I use the ATI drivers.

Some rumors say that Athlon 64 motherboards are having some conflicts with
Radeon cards.

Did you always use the ATI drivers or did the trouble go away when
you switched from Asus to ati drivers?
