Screen blanks white with Diamond Stealth 32

When I'm in X, the screen blanker turns the screen white instead of black.
I have a Diamond Stealth 32 video card, and a friend with the same card is
also having the same problem.  Anyone know how to fix this?

hmm, no real idea.  I'd guess your new main board is the problem
(in combination witht he card; PCI timing problems, ...). but maybe

where is this COM4 port located ??
did you have it on your 486 board too (using the *same* card) ?
some COM4 ports have address conflicts with the S3 chips due to
broken address decoders. try to disable/remove this port.

also get XFree86 3.1.2B which has some minor PCI fixes...

and try your graphics card in every single PCI slot...
