When I connect to my Drac5 card I get a very strange screen; I am unable to read anything. The rest of the DRAC is fine.

See Attached file. This is what I get

Thanks

Looks like you just have a bad session hanging on. Try to login DRAC --> Remote Access---> Session Management --> Terminate the sessions

Try it again. Make sure you maximize your screen.

There is only one session as this is a New Drac card and I am the only one using it.

I meant you can soft reset your DRAC. Soft resets terminate all user sessions. Subsequently, issuing any kind of a reset causes all user interfaces to fail (for instance, when redirecting the console through the Web-based interface). After issuing a hard or soft reset, you must first log out and wait until the RAC is back online before logging on again. Perform soft reset in command per the instruction on p85 or using Web based connection:
