The Radeon All-In-Wonder has a DVI output and no 15 pin VGA out. It comes with a DVI-to-VGA adapter. I think my adapter is screwy, because I'm getting frequent image corruption on my system. I think the best way to describe it is blocks of pixels shifted a couple inches to the side.

I know it's not a driver issue, because it affects the POST screen and everything before and after the OS loads. I've made sure the card is well seated in the AGP slot. I just installed a new motherboard today, and it did it both with the old and new boards. There is no visible corrosion on the contacts on the bottom of the card. I've tried both the D-sub and the BNC inputs on my monitor and it doesn't help. Once the corruption pops up, the only way to get rid of it is to jiggle the DVI-to-VGA adapter and hope I hit a spot that gives a good signal.

I'm going to contact ATI shortly to see what they have to say, but I wanted to check if anybody here has seen this, and if there is a known solution.
