    Everytime I fire up my mac pro with the ATI X1900 XT I alway hear the Restart sound BONG when you restart the Mac? What is going on here? Have my ATI X1900 XT gone bad?

    WHAT ????

    The bong happens everytime you turn on and restart your computer.. ? That's what your saying yes ?

    Well, that's supossed to happen. Only way you stop the bong is to MUTE your mac before you restart or switch off...

    So Im not quite sure what your problem is ? :confused: :confused:

    Look like I wasn't being more specific. Well...actually what happend is everytime the Mac Pro power up it look like it restarting itself before it going into the user selection screen. I'm using VGA connection with my Sony monitor, so I think the glitch is making it look as if it restarting. Guess I have to wait until I get a DVI LCD connection monitor.

    Unfornately with using VGA connection, it glitch when boot onto windows. I can see Windows XP loading screen, then after it get into Windows I get no picture at all. But I only get glitch when booting into Mac OS X. It perfectly fine though when it finally get in Mac OS X.
