Possibly conflicting with something or the card has failed or it could be a driver issue try & update the drivers if this doesn't work check in device manager if there is a yellow exclamation mark then there is a conflict somewhere, if driver update doesn't work & no conflicts are found your card has failed & will need to be replaced.

the error means that you do not have a power cod connected on the card or the power supplied by the PS is not enough for the card to run.

Remove power from the parts in the PC that you are not using anymore and try to reinstall the card.

worst case is getting another power supply about 600 watts

This could be but I suspect that you monitor is needing service.
1. To isolate connect a known good LCD to the pc graphics card ( the ATI RADEON)
If the lines are not visible then yes a new video card is needed.
2. check the video cable to see if you have it well connected to the video port.
this sometime will render intermittent screen and vertical color lines.
3. check video cable for bent pins.
I hope this helps. Have great day!

Depends what the fault is.

ATI RADEON 9800... | Answered on Jul 25, 2010

It can. but it can be a number of problems as well. How long has it been since you cleaned out your computer? How long have you had the computer? Do you play a lot of games where the video card would be used a lot? Here's some things that you can do to maybe fix your problem. 1. goto: start -> run type in "msconfig" goto the last tab "startup" and disable all. restart computer 2. goto: start -> all programs -> accessories -> system tools Now...in this menu you'll want to do 2 things "clean disk" and "defrag" (both of which will most likely take hours of doing) 3. Get a heatsink to put on the video card where the fan was and that should do the same thing as long as you have a good fan in the PC. On another note, you could probably get another fan to put in your system (especially if you like to play a lot of games on your PC)

this site containes the driver you need, download "catalyst software suite" the driver for radeon 900series is in there. ....please vote for my help thanks

The memory on your card is beginning to fail. There is no repair for it, and it's time to let it retire.

You should be able to find a new 5700 or similar still in most computer shops. Pricing is the big problem with them costing far more then an equivalent PCI-e model.

ATI can get confusing. You might have installed ATI's CCC, "Catalyst Control Center", along with the display drivers. I suggest you download the latest combo-CCC and drivers for your video card. ATI comes out with new drivers pretty fast. When using dual monitors CCC is where you want to setup your monitors. After you set up the catalyst control center you'll find it much easyer to assign what monitor displays what. One other suggestion. ATI will want you to uninstall any other software for your ATI card even though all you have is ATI software.

You must uninstall the current driver and reinstall the driver for the 9800 Pro first:
Power supply recommended is 300watt for each, so that is not a factor. It would have to be a driver conflict.

You said these didn't fix the problems for "very long," so it sounds like something might be overheating. It could be the card, or possibly your monitor. I would download a program to run diagnostics on the card to specifically check the temperature of the card itself. Perhaps the fan/heatsink needs to be refitted or a better cooling solution for the card.

Try going online to call up the specs on your motherboard. You could also call Acer or check their website.

Your heatsink fan on the graphic card is failing and the motor is going down hill, now saying it has completly stopped..,.. that means the fan motor is done for and need to be replaced to avoid further damage to your graphic card. Would reccommend you not using your graphic card until a new heatsink fan is replaced otherwise you can fry your GPU and suffer a complete loss.

How did you get your drivers and graphics? Did you install the whole package? What is the Asus model #? How much Ram do you have? I'm going to do a little research but let me know what you have.

Are you certain that your mainboard is PCIE 2.1 and not PCIE 2.0? PCIE 2.1 cards like yours will not work on a 2.0 mainboard (2.0 cards will work on a 2.1 board, however) If this is the case, you will need to get a compatible card.
If this isn't the case, have you tried this card in a different PC? It could also be that the card has a problem.
The last possibility is that there are power issues. A couple of possibilities:
  1. An external power connector (6-pin PCIE direct power to the video card) is unplugged. Check and re-test.
  2. Your power supply (PSU) doesn't provide enough power to your graphics card & the rest of your system. Check your PSU's specs against the specs for your card. HIS recommends a minimum 450W PSU, and I would recommend a good quality Antec, Corsair, or PC Power and Cooling or Cooler Master product in the 500W range for this card.
  3. You got a bad card, or else it shorted out, etc. during setup or installation.
