[mythtv-users] Display only detected sometimes, "low-graphics mode" rest of time

I just upgraded my myth box from a 2.4GHz P4 to a AMD 5400+.  This is
my first AMD machine and it isn't going that well.  Besides the air2pc
card problem in another post, this machine boots up fine sometimes and
boots up with this message some times:  "Ubuntu is running in
low-graphics mode".  This is with nvidia 5+ driver.  It seems the
problem is that the ASUS 6200 PCI-E card is recognizing the Samsung
193p+ only some of the times.  I never had a problem with this monitor
in mythbuntu with the P4 system and the EVGA 6200 AGP card.

Does anyone know if this means I have defective hardware?  I think I
have like 7 days to send stuff back if needed.

Anyone else have this problem?

I searched for a solution and of course, there are lots of advice how
to get rid of this error when it is permanent (install the drivers)
but nothing for a sometimes problem.
