Thanks for the reply, feeef.

The bomb error was resolved by starting with a fresh System Folder. Something must have gotten corrupted in the multiple installations and restarts.

But the card still isn't giving a signal, VGA or DVI.

Did you remove and reattach the large battery on the motherboard? Or just press the small reset button?

I'm wondering if replacing that battery would do anything; not sure how old it is...

For my 9500, I think the PRAM battery is dead, so if it has been powered off for a while or unplugged, it'll be black on first boot. I have to power down and then back up again to see anything on the screen.

Also, I don't seem to have any problems using DVI. I'm use a 64MB Radeon 7000 with a 128KB chip and flashed to the 2.26 ROM (from the Aug 2005 ATI Radeon ROM Update).

I also suggest you replace your PRAM battery. It may cause a few problems at startup indeed.
