Both cirrus and stdvga worked in Win2k not-so-recently. Cirrus, IIRC,
required a driver install, stdvga used "standard vga controller" which,
in win2k, was always marked with yellow exclamation mark, just because
the driver itself always sets that mark, "thinking" it is always wrong
driver.

So no, it's not the switch from cirrus to std, it's something else.
