Trouble with appian typhoon

May i please ask some questions about my Appian AGP Typhoon card. I can't find any other support online since they sold out. I have an Asus CUSL2-C motherboard P2 933mz, with 512 installed ram. When i boot up my computer the two 17" Sony DVI displays are in standby mode, but they will not come on till after the post/boot up process, what i mean is i can hear the computer booting up and see the harddrive light blinking but i can not see the post or even get into my BIOS cause the displays are still in standby ( they are blank) till windows then after the post ( about 1 minute ) poof the Windows "welcome screen" comes on and then straight to the desk top then it works super super good. But if i take out the card and put in PCI video card and put connect a CRT display it works normal...i can see the post and stuff. Also i have noticed that if i try to reload and or a new install of Windows on a clean formatted or new drive that i can't do it cause the screens are blank, they never will boot up...i have to take out the Typhoon card and use the PCI card and CRT display to see to load everything. I only keep saying a PCI video card cause thats all i have, i don't have an extra regular AGP card. So its like the displays will not come on till Windows loads after the bootup. I have tried every thing, all settings are as they should be i believe.

Re: trouble with appian typhoon

Sounds like a nice setup! And just for the record, the company did not go out of business but changed the name of their business (now calling themselves "colorgraphic". You can find the necessary info by going to and selecting Support->Appian ( I would recommend going into the Desktop Management Control utility (once you are booted up) and make sure the "boot to Single Screen" option is selected. From what I read you should still see everything but it might be spread across the two screens. Has this been the case since day 1 or is this something that used to work OK but no longer does? That would help a bunch. If it used to work and now doesn't, can you think of anything you might have done to cause it, like recently installed software or Windows update? The above website should give you the necessary information to solve the problem. It does appear they no longer provide support for the Appian cards (which are really just ATI cards). Good luck!

I have this card on my current system...Windows 98........Will I be able to use it on a new Windows 7 system?

If you mean will this card work on a modern PC..NO
It uses a PCI connection, then came AGP, and now the standard is PCI-express, and we are up to Version 3 i think.
So unfortunatly this card will not run on a modern motherboard, and Windows 7 will not run on a motherboard that this card would fit.
A modern card costing £40 or so would outperform that card many times over
This card had 16mb ram, you will find it hard to get a new card with less than 256mb

Hello I bought a used hp compaq dc7100 computer that is supposed to have a video card that allows me to run 2 monitors (the guy actually said it supports 4 monitors). Hooking everything up and turning on...

You could find the exact model of your graphics card by clicking on run and then running dxdiag. You will then goto the display tab and it will show you what you need to know. Then just google the drivers for whatever card you have.

I would suggest that you take it in to your nearest computer hardware shop, let them have a look at it, cause you can loose your warrenty in total if you do this yourself. If will not cost you alot, but it will also let you keep your warrenty. Hope this can help you.

I need a Vista driver for Appian Graphics Rushmore Graphics Card

Look at your motherboard spec's and see what you have for a video card slot, then see what chipset
is running your board, if the chipset is ati then get an Ati card,if nvidia,then nvidia card.

I have never even heard of these card MFG, and don't see there support sites.

My opinion would be to go to a place online like and find a card for your board, a good cheap card will run about 30-40.00 dollars. The graphics will be a lot better on your pc.

If the cards came with the pc,you can try and go to the site of the pc maker and see if there is a vista driver, if not, you either have to reinstall xp or buy a new card. Hope it works out.

Display driver missing

If your OS is XP SP2, you can un install the Graphics card via device manager and on re boot let Windows new found hardware wizard pick it up and it should set up your Card itself, as the CD's drivers are probably not the latest XP SP2 compatible driver.

You could also go to the Graphics card's Manufacturer's Support site and download the latest XP compatible driver, or whatever OS's driver you require.

You can look here also:

Good luck.
