The one I bought would only operate in VGA mode.

Dell support knew straight away what the problem was and had me pull the front off the machine to try to reset it.

Didn't work and they replaced it quickly - but judging from the comments made by Dell upgrade to the 64mb alternative is a good idea.

Incidentally after years of reliable Dell service I have heard recently of a number of wrong spec. or non-operating deliveries. Check carefully on receipt of any new kit...
