    I have 2 MSI HD4850's. Both of them i cannot connect DVI cable. I have to use a DVI-VGA adaptor and connect it to analog. I have tried my monitor on a x1900 card and it works with DVI. Then i tried my card in that machine with my monitor and it doesn't display. But i can hear my pc beeps and even hear the windows sounds. I then connected the X1900 in my pc and it worked with DVI. Is there maybe a bios fix i can use? Like another manufacter bios?

    First thing you should do is email MSI and tell them your situation. They will most likely provide you with a bios that will work with your card and take care of the problem. Or someone else with your card and a good bios will come along. Good luck. :)

    It's a known problem. Everything seems fine when you boot, but when the windows logo shows up... Screen goes black.

    I have the same issue and i did try to find a fix and failed. Your stuck using DVI --> VGA for the time being.

    ATI is aware of this "driver related" screwup and has not fixed it yet.

    Unfortunately this is when the systems boots and no post is shown
