    Hi!

    During installation, my graphics got all screwed up. You can see a screenshot of what's going on at this link:

    I think you guys can see it too. I'm actually writing on the defective computer, so it's hard for me to see what's in the screenshot.

    Here's what I did so far. I tried removing half of the RAM first, then the second half, the problem persist. I rebooted on a different system, it's still there (so not software). I tried Hardware Test utility, it says everything is fine. I unplugged the Video Card, cleaned it a little along with the connectors, nothing.

    Here's what we know. It happened DURING the update to 10.4.11 (not after I rebooted). I'm pretty sure I can take screenshots of it, so it's not simply in the connectors to the monitors. It happens on both my monitors (also when I unplug one of them).

    You guys have any idea of what I can do or what is going on?

    Thanks!

    Kind of a shot in the dark but have you tried using the combo updater?

    At this point, I'd say the upgrade isn't involved anymore. The problem is there when I boot from my installation CD of a different boot drive

    Weird. Have you tried doing the various zapping, resetting and other voodoo?

    I did the PRAM thing (from my OS9 days), what else can I do?
