I decided to install the latest AMD AGP and ATI drivers today...and lo and behold, ANOTHER hardware problem.

After the ATI drivers are installed, the screen gets murky and dark...but not the digital kind...the kind that looks like the RAMDAC is failing *Shudders*. Just spent my money on this old 9700 Pro, and I will NEVER buy a card made by Sapphire again. Powercolor or ATI from now on.

Thanks, guys! You people give ATI the bad rep it doesn't deserve!

Wow...weird...Installed the old Omega 4.12 betas, and they worked!

I'm getting really sick of this tempermental card.
