I bought an ATI Mach32 EISA from a seller on ebay. It came in today and is pretty much a $260 dollar paperweight. I'm in the process of initiating a return with the Glasgow seller I bought it from but I doubt I'll have any luck considering my past experience with used part dealers on ebay.
It won't display a full character set and constantly displays character artifacts flashing about all over the screen. The seller included a disk with a EISA config file. I know the EISA configuration menu by heart so I managed to install the cfg file in hopes that it would remedy the problem. Nope. it's just a bad card.
Anyway I was curious as to whether any of you guys have seen anything like this before and is there any chance of me fixing this card.
