    Meanwhile I tried a Sapphire Radeon X1550 (512MB, PC-BIOS, see picture). A nice passively cooled card with low power draw (~28W), but this one does not work. Installed it in the 2nd slot, a Nvidia GF6600 is in the 1st one.

    MorphOS 3.12 boots into the desktop, but I got garbled colours (funny rgb dots, horizontally segmented by 5mm wihte lines) though the mouse pointer looks ok and works as intended. The machine is usable, but the colours are that garbled you can't do anything meaningful.

    Have you tried using the x1550 under Linux? I have an AGP x1300 that was ruined. Showed up, but colour artifacting like crazy and really unusable. Maybe your GPU suffered the same fate?

    At least if you boot up with linux, you can see how it appears to see if it is the GPU or something to do with MorphOS.
