i recently (~5 months) purchaced a prebuilt cyberpowerPC which came with a 7850 graphics card.
i'm experiencing several problems.
1. black screen on 1st boot up which requires one or more reboots to boot up to windows login.
2. after normal bootup, random graphics device failures. most of the time the screen locks up in a color or pattern. sometimes windows is able to recover.
i have a monitor that only has VGA input and the amd7850 doesn't have VGA out, so i got an dvi to vga adaptor. could this be causing my graphics problems? i'd like an idea before investing in a new monitor.
