Hy.

I have a strange problem. When I load ati9700.kext, then my screen goes to powersave mode. I have tried every installation dvd from 10.4.7 and same thing with every one.
Only system, that works fine is 10.4.3


And yes, I know about callisto and agpGart, the problem is somehow in ati9700.kext.
Here are my specs. With AgpGart 2.1 and Callisto 008. This is the combo, that used to work well for me in the past.

I would be really thankful, if somebody can figure it out. I'm bangin my head against the wall

Tnx a lot.

PS: Just installed Tubgirl 10.4.10 and same thing!!
