Finally gave in and purchased a Radeon 9200, in order to move the old nVidia card over to machine #2, which slowly takes shape.
I've spent the last two frustrating afternoons trying to make it work properly. Well, it actually 'works' fine, but when attached to the LCD panel, there are strange vertical ghosts. Finally, after resorting to my old 14" Dell monitor for testing, I've established its more likely some strange unhappiness between card and LCD panel.
As for a solution, not sure - new cables, DVI adaptors etc. have all been mentioned. Sounds like its going to be even more expensive than I thought...
I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.
I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
