For 3 years I've been happily using a Sapphire HD 2600PRO (ATI Radeon 2600 PRO based) card in a management workstation that runs Windows Server 2003. System was rock-solid and card supported 2 monitors.
Fan on the video card went bad, and in the effort to replace with an aftermarket unit-- which turned out to be a slightly wrong fit-- we accidentally damaged the card. It's hard to find a mainstream card that supports 2 monitors because they all advertise working with Windows XP but not Server 2003. So I decided to stay with "what we know works" and bought a card from VisionTek that was based on the Radeon 2600 PRO chipset.
Problem-- the driver CD's install utility errors out due to unsupported OS. So I manually installed the drivers via Device Manager. Now the machine runs for a while-- sometimes 2 minutes, sometimes 2 hours-- then the display goes blank. Programs are still running in the background, but I cannot get the display back without going to another workstation and remotely rebooting mine.
Can anyone recommend where I might be able to find a suitable driver that will work on this card and OS combination?
