Monitor was working, then drivers load and a quick flash of color on the CRT and zilch. Computer was fine. Removed the drivers and went back to onboard graphics (which I had disabled as per ATIs specs)
It my old CRT not able to use a spanky graphics card due to refresh etc?
what monitor resolution are you installing the drivers in? usually if a monitor doesn't support the default resolution, you will get a black screen with some input error. try installing the drivers @ lowest resolution. 800x600. then after drivers are installed, only choose the resolution that the monitor can handle.
