I am currently running into an issue with the FirePro W5000 on multiple Dell T1650 stations. This issue is only during start up on a W7 Pro (SP1) 64-bit w/16GB; solid state drive & dual Dell 24" monitors. The issue is while starting up, the primary screen becomes pixelated and wavey making the start up screen illegible. The only way that I have found to get past this is to reboot. The second reboot usually takes care of this but I have had to reboot as many as 3 times before this boots correctly. I have updated the driver to only have the same thing happen. I have rolled the driver back as suggested by support but that did not correct the issue either.
This issue does not happen on a regular basis and I have not been able to determine what would trigger this since each station does this sporadically.
Is this something that is typical with these cards? Any suggestions/idea's on how to correct this?
