Garbled screen but not at the init nor in the BIOS

Hi got the strangest issue with a GD610/620 based ISA video card (Stingray Rev4+, more info on it ) on a 486 system.

Re: What's this card

Thanks predator99, indeed it seems to be the same card if not for the RAMDAC. We also share the same DIPSW settings I see. In the meantime thanks to the help of incanus I was able to confirm that my card was OK by switching via software to the external display. Here's his post with the needed …

Re: What's this card

Thanks! I must admit that I saw my share of video cards but never noticed this brand. I'm adding the datasheet to my project folder and keep looking for the DPSW settings.
