Well I got my standard Geneve up and running again, a couple of weeks ago I had an issue with the card when I turned the P-box on of the swan coming up with squiggly lines running vertically up and down the screen. This weekend I replaced the vram chips and it worked for a few turn ons then started another strange activity, the screen with the swan was full of artifacts. I thought that I had blown those dram chips too, but decided first to remove the 9938 and swap it. Now this 9938 is the one I bought from China, when I first blew the card up, some months back. I had started working on the Geneve that I got from Insane Multitasker and used the old chip on there after making sure it was working on mine. I believe the video chip is faulty, and of the first vram chips, one of those tested bad. Don't know if the 9938 blew the ram or vice versa, but the ram was purchase from either Jameco or Mouser, so I don't think they were bad. The second set is fine and I can go into mdos and do thing:)
I would say at the moment, beware where you get you chips.
