Sapphire HD 3850 Greenish Garbled Display
Posted on 2009-07-03
Just installed my PCI-E Sapphire HD 3850 in my WinXP box.
No errors upon driver installation.
But upon reboot screen goes all greenish and garbled as if there was some frequency problem.
I'm wondering if it's my old CRT that can't handle the technology, and/or if I can adjust the Sapphire to adapt to the old Monitor.
Weird thing: if I use the keyboard to 'guess' my way into standby mode, once i exit standby, the screen displays fine.
And I'm not sure, but I think i smelled some burning coming from the monitor if I leave the green thing going on for too long.
