The Radeon card has a known issue with the VIA chipset. You may not be able to use the card at all. I have heard of this happening many times. You might want to find out what version of BIOS you have.
Let me know if you need anything else.

I recently picked up a Radeon 64Mb card, hoping to install it in my hp Pavilion 8670C (similar to 8566, but slightly faster; VIA chipset; TNT2 Vanta on-board video). The Radeon user guide says that the GART driver has to be updated for the card to work with the VIA chipset.
I spoke to hp Tech Support, who were of very little help! I was told the motherboard was a Kestrel (Kestral?), but I can't locate any info on the Web for that name. Could I use the GART driver direct from VIA (for the Apollo Pro 133 chipset)?
