    Has anyone had experience with using a PCI video card on a S2882?
    I've installed a video card in my S2882 and disabled the onboard video
    (via jumper), but nothing comes out on the monitor when I boot up. Here
    is a summary of the problem:

    1. I disable the onboard video through the motherboard jumper.
    2. Then I plug the video card into PCI slot #5 (the one at the bottom of
    the motherboard) and connect the monitor.
    3. When I power on the system, nothing shows up on the monitor (I've
    made sure that it is connected to the PCI video card).
    4. I've also tried disabling the onboard video through the BIOS menu,
    but it does not work either - it successfully disables the onboard video
    (nothing comes out of the onboard VGA port), but the PCI video card
    doesn't display anything either. I had to clear the CMOS to re-enable
    the onboard video output.

    Here are the system's specs:

    Motherboard: Tyan K8S Pro S2882
    BIOS revision: v2.03
    Operating system: Red Hat Linux 7.3
    PCI video card: PowerColor R92P-LC3 (chipset: ATI Radeon 9250)

    I've tested this video card in another computer, and it works - so I'm
    sure that the video card is not broken. I would greatly appreciate it
    if anyone could help me out with this problem.

    Try to move the card to another slot OR swap with another PCI card.
