In most cases the driver will fail to load with a changed card ... that
can be
caught.  The problem is when the driver dose load on the wrong card a
things happen to the screen.  That can only be caught if the user dose
some sort 
of improper shutdown ( reset button ).  Neither of these is "quite right
so the 
best bet is a vastly improved detection engine.  
BTW : I still want to know how this LOD was killed.  I just find it
that you could do in a few days what a legion couldn't do in years.
