    Sun Blade 2000, Expert3D graphics, garbled or no display?

    807557
      Power got pulled on a Sun Blade 2000 the other day and since booting back up I'm having display problems. It worked before connected to a 17" TFT running at 1280x1024, but with exactly the same setup I get nothing when booting up (well, "Input not supported").

      Next I obviously tried an old CRT and got the following result: [http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/6069/photozlk.jpg|http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/6069/photozlk.jpg]

      This ruled out it just being a strange resolution I think. So, I plugged my terminal into the serial output and tried changing the resolution with SUNWifb_config, again with the TFT plugged in. At 1024x768x60 and a few other resolutions I managed to produce the blue and white fuzzy stripes on the TFT, but obviously nothing useful.

      Is the graphics card broken, or can someone give me a push in the right direction?

          After noticing an error message about system/boot-archive, I've done a "boot -F failsafe" as suggested by others in relation to the error. The difference this has made is... The blue and white lines are now nice and crisp! But everything still doing the same. I can change resolution and the bars change sizes and are still nice and clear.

          Has anyone seen the blue and white stripes before?
