I have a video card which seems to have only marginal compatibility with some Slot 1 and Socket 7 boards. Specifically:

Video Card: PCI, Hightech, CRT and DVI, 128MB, 64Mbit
Board: Tested in five different Slot 1 and Socket 7 boards.
Works well in one Gigabyte Slot 1 board and one Jetway Socket 7 board.
Fails well in one PC Partner Socket 7 board and one Gigabyte Socket 7 board.
BIOS: Gigabyte Slot 1 board running recent or latest BIOS
Jetway Socket 7 board running older BIOS - cannot upgrade
PC Partner Socket 7 board running latest BIOS patched by Wims for 120GB HDD support
Gigabyte Socket 7 board running older BIOS but plan and should be able to upgrade this


Can a BIOS be patched to enable additional VGA cards to be recognised?
