Aha!  So while it does have a VESA BIOS it's just not complete.
Presumably the vesa code uses some of the less common features to
achieve what it does?  In a word, it's doesn't work and it's not going
to without some really radical changes to the vesa code?  Can you
confirm/refute this?

  I'd love to switch the card... unfortunately this is a laptop and I
really don't fancy soldering it; might void my Sony warranty ;)
