Apparently there are many HD 2400 and HD 2600 chips with BIOS problems due some buggy AMD diagnostic and validation software. The issue has been encountered by makers like ASUS, MSI, and Gigabyte and one company has already recalled 20,000-30,000 units so far. Most of these defective units are either already in the "channel" or already on their way back to the makers. Apparently very few defective chips are on video cards that are currently in the hands of customers (Maybe that's because few people have purchased a HD 2400 or HD 2600. Ooo burn!). DigiTimes has any additional information that you may require.
Buggy AMD software may have let defective cards reach shelves.
