So I have an X1800XL AIW. The thing worked fine no problems. I decide to add a second fan to my V1-Ultra heat sink. I pull the card, add the fan, put the card back in and I see nasty stuff. My screen has funny blinking yellow characters and wavy lines at startup. Windows still boots ok but I can't see much. I took the fan off tried again and get the same. I tried an X800XL card to make sure it wasn't the motherboard. That card works fine. Try the X1800XL again, still doesn't work. I always assumed that if I damaged a board it wouldn't work at all. This looks more like the cards got a bad connection or something. Is my card gone? What might I have done to cause this problem? Hows that X1900XT looking?
