    A question for the Linux power users herein:

    The system in question is the one shown in "Dr. Zchivago PC Specs" above my avatar:

    Has anyone encountered an issue where Ubuntu install (from Live USB) will run normally, but once installation is complete, the display goes crazy and looks completely distorted? I don't know of a better way to describe it, but everything past boot looks like a Picasso with even less definition. I cannot see any windows, read any text, etc.

    I have been told that it is a problem in Crossfire/SLI setups, but everything looked fine when booted to Live USB. I have also tried disconnecting X-Fire bridges, turning cards off, etc., but the problem remains whenever more than one graphics card is installed. With my water setup, it is quite impossible to physically remove any one graphics card without completely tearing down the entire system.

    Any thoughts?

    Resistance is futile (at <1 Ohm).
