Warning for Win XP users and Matrox digital cards.

    I just re installed a slipstreamed XP into a box this weekend.
    Virgin install.
    All went well until the final boot.
    Just before the windows log in screen, the monitor went blank and stayed
    that way.

    Needless to say I was concerned and thought that it had locked up.

    FIX.

    Win XP does not know how to handle a Digital cable to the monitor with its
    stock drivers.
    Disconnected the digital monitor cord and used the analogue one until I had
    time to download the Matrox 650 driver.
