I am having the same problem as BillN. I have tried two old PCIe cards, a Radeon x300 and an x1300, on a GX620 with A11 BIOS.

I believe that the problem is with drivers or system settings, but I can't figure it out. Initially, both cards would show video, booting into XP at low resolutions. After attempted install of Radeon 10-3 legacy drivers pack, the problem of no more video appeared. During installation of the drivers, the only options available were items which did not match the cards -- USB video devices??

I've tried uninstalling the drivers and running Driver Sweeper, but with both cards, the screen blacks out shortly after the Windows XP startup screen.

Help, please!
