Is anyone here using a 3DLabs Oxygen VX1 graphics card? Have you figured out how to make the card display jet black instead of a dull black? I know I've corrected this on one other card with a BIOS update. Anything for the VX1?

Not a helpful response.
Just didn't know that VX1 models have such problems, since they were supposed to be pro-summer grade material.
I have several Oxygens, but they are all GVX1 and later models - work as advertised.

Well, the same issue happens with the 3DLabs Permedia2. Perhaps it is deliberate.

My GVX1 Pro AGP suffers the same issue - even with the latest BIOS & drivers. Otherwise the dispaly is pretty sharp
