That's not a usb video card this is a usb adapter that enables you to connect an external monitor.
|The USB 2.0 SVGA Adapter enables you to connect any monitor, LCD, projector to your PC or Notebook. By using USB 2.0 technology, there is no need struggle with compatibility issues related to a second VGA card.
Wackamac, when you put your pcmcia card, what happened?
Before windows start, when the computer is checking the bios, is the radeon used, or is the intel graphics chip used, but it uses the radeon's vga out ports,
and when you put the new x800 bios, you still have picture, but the vga out ports get messed up?
Can you use that bios flashing tool from within windows? I bet if you put the pcmcia card and that usb adapter and windows start, after their drivers get loaded from windows you will have picture.
And if the x800 bios works, but the vga out ports are messed up, we wouldn't even need the pcmcia card. We could boot up with the radeon.
Do windows start at all if the radeon is messed up? You said you could get corrupted video with some bioses. Were there any times where windows didn't start at all?
