Default xfx fx5900 error

hope you guys can be of some help.

I purchsed this card off ebay, knowing full well that it was having
problems. The seller reported blue screens with "irq not less or equal"
errors. After looking them up online, it appeared that was most likely a
hardware conflict or dodgy ram, i'll have one bid i thought.

(un)fortunately my one bid won the thing, and it arrived today.

I uninstalled the drivers i had, and installed the "new" card. The problems
were almost immediate. thin blue lines the vertical length of the srceen
during post, then blue and grey lines for the windows xp booting screen,
then ....nothing. the screen went into sleep mode, like it was recieving no

any ideas anyone? could it be a power issue? could the ram on the card be
stuffed? could it be a different wy of reporting teh same error the seller

Help would be much appreciated.
