I've upgraded from GF2MX to GF4TI4400 - there are severall problems that occured maybe these problems occured to some of you allready.
First of all - allready when I boot there appear coloured bars - from a specific point in the bootprocedure on (could be the alsa-starting point? allready put it to the ending(S99)) - these bars go through the writing.
The text which is covered with these bars appears in inverted colors. The bars are green and brown mostly.
2nd and thats more important - X won't start, neither with nv nor with nvidia-drivers. I have a dozen of XF86Config-4 files which I'm used to switch - f.e. if I wana watch TV I need the nv-driver etc. I tested a couple of them none works. There allways appears just a black screen - though the system is not locked and I can ALT+CTRL+DEL to reboot - but I'm not able to switch to the F1-F6 terminals... they are all black maybe.
I've allready checked the Bios and disabled anything (Fastwriting etc.)
As told above I've upgraded from a GF2 and with the GF2 everything worked well.
Any suggestions - maybe it's an obvious difference between these two cards - if not I'll gona post some logs following the replies.
I have no windows to check the card but it worked long time since I bought it used. (checked it there on a MSbox too)
