I tried both of these ideas, separately and together. Seem to be getting
closer. Instead of a blank screen I get random coloured vertical bars on
parts of the screen. Still get this:
(II) RADEON(0): Primary:
Monitor -- TMDS
Connector -- DVI-D
DAC Type -- TVDAC/ExtDAC
TMDS Type -- Internal
DDC Type -- VGA_DDC
(II) RADEON(0): Secondary:
Monitor -- CRT
Connector -- VGA
DAC Type -- Primary
TMDS Type -- External
DDC Type -- DVI_DDC
Should note here, there is no VGA connector on the card. There is a DVI
connector (the one I am using) and the one that looks like DVI, but bigger,
ADC I think?

Still no joy. Sorry for taking so long to get back to the list, I had to go
