Does not work with Thinkpad t60p and docking station

Summary: I have been trying to get ATI and Levono to fix a problem with the Thinkpad BIOS for 2 months. ATI has determined that the Thinkpad BIOS does not have enough "extra space". DO NOT BUY this if you have a Thinkpad T60p!!! From the ATI support: After further testing, it was determined that this issue is a result of a lock of option ROM apace that is reserved by the BIOS of the notebook and not a result of a problem in the video cards BIOS.
Summary: I attempted to install this in a Asus Windows 7 64bit box. I preloaded the drivers I downloaded from the ATI website. The computer refused to boot. I called ATI service and they are open 9 to 5 M-H and 9-3 Fri, not at all on weekends. This is as good as no service since this was for a home computer. I am returning it. I will not buy ATI again.
Excellent way to run four LCD monitors on an older desktop PC

Summary: This ATI video card allows my seven-year-old Dell desktop PC to run four wide-screen 22-inch video monitors at the same time as if they were one giant screen. This is an amazing feat, because it's difficult to find a quad video card that will run this many monitors without over-taxing the wimpy power supply in such an old machine. I'd originally tried to get a quad video card from Dell. That was a nightmare.
Summary: ROM initialization error on startup. Can't install driver for VGA controller if you try to use the setup CD. Crash on shutdown. BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) if you try to dock it. It is definitely not for you if you use a Lenovo ThinkPad.
Summary: ATI claims full Vista compliance with this card, but do a search on their 'support' site for this item: 737-24534: FireMV 2400: Catalyst Control Center: Second ASIC does not install under VISTA - Cannot enable third and/or fourth monitors. Currently there is no solution ... You cant use the 3rd and 4th monitors under Vista? Then why are you getting this card?
Summary: It is really unfortunate for this card that the only reviews are folks trying to install this on laptops?! I think they were reviewing the wrong card. As for the earlier Vista review, I did not have problems installing and configuring this under Vista. Unfortunately my other cards and peripherals were not Vista ready, so I had to settle for XP Pro. I purchased this card when it first came out--paid the extra price, too.
