Look at the dates on some of their TSNs relating to video cards.  As I
recall they have TSNs that are literally years old where they warn users
about potential problems with both Nvidia and ATI video cards.  These
show that they have been aware of some video related problem for many
years, which they haven't fixed, while they continue to issue statements
that it's due to a certain model of card that many of us are using
without a problem.

That says to me that they know there's a problem, which they haven't
fixed, and they've tried to dodge the issue by continuously causing
people to switch to alternate video cards.

Luckily for us, the end users, it's relatively cheap and easy to switch
video cards until those that do have a problem find one that works with
their particular system (at least, for desktop systems).
