    ATI FireMV 2250 PCIex1 DMS -59

    Just got this card for old computer and loaded the vista drivers and it works in Windows 10. Here is the problem,I can restart the machine 20 times in a roll and all is well on booting up to desktop. If I shutdown the computer and reboot get a black screen with only mouse icon ? Now the weird part,if shutdown and change the vga to other dms-59 vga connector all is well, like the card switches between connector on shutdown. Using only one monitor for this card,is there a way to setup primary connector? Has anyone used this type of card with one monitor? I'm lost,don't want to switch connector every time I shut down. Any suggestions

    Does anyone have this working on Windows 10 Machine? Just formatted drive and installed Windows 7 and display works perfect on cold start up. So it got to be something in Windows 10, on the Windows 7 insalled it had the display driver listed as ATI Fire2250 and Microsoft Corporation -WDDM. On Windows 10 install it just has ATI Fire 2250. I see they use different driver versions, Windows 7 was using and windows 10 uses 8.593.100.8000. Just lost why it works if I change the cable on DMS-59 cable it boots up with display. Maybe someone has a idea.

    Well after Two days of tweaking with drivers and no success this is what I found to fix the problem. Went in to power setting in Windows 10
    and turned off Fast Startup and all is well. This was the strangest problem I ever had with a video card. So the ATI FireMV 2250 will work in Windows 10 .
