    Hi all,

    A need for some help
    Yesterday it was the first day when the problem started... Sometimes when I started my Mac Pro 2.66 and running leopard (update) I hear 3 times the startup sound:confused:
    Friday I cleaned (2 times already) my X 1900 xt card and Saturday the problem appeared :eek:

    Sometimes it need more then 10 startups before it shows up again.....:rolleyes:

    Any help here?
    Thank you and regards,
    Mac

    Try booting while holding command+option+P+R until you hear the startup sound a second time.

    How did you "clean" your card?

    Thx BlueRevolution,
    I will try that.

    I remove it just like the instructions says it without no problems clean it with air pressure the copper heat blades (always a lot of dust there) :D

    Thx steveca,
    I did a Leopard update a few days ago ;)

    But now you mention it... I forgot almost it... I added yesterday also a USB hub :rolleyes: Maybe... :confused:

    In that case, I'd suggest giving Apple a call. Is it under warranty?
