I have a B2600 with an FX5 graphics card in slot 3. I installed HPUX 10.2.
The text output is garbled in the blue areas of the welcome screen. I have swapped both the I/O cage and FX5 graphics card and still have garbled text in the blue areas. If I move the FX5 card to another slot (slot 4) the text output is normal. Does this mean there is an issue with the system board? Is there a fix for this?

The PCI card cage only contains the slots. Its the motherboard that contains the PCI bridge and I/O controllers. Likely its the local bus adapter for that particular slot that is causing the issues.
However, slot 4 is just as capable as slot 3, so if you are not using the slot 4, just move the card over.
