I had the same problem today with my Radeon 9800 Pro. In my case, when I removed the 9800 card to check it out (posts elsewhere suggest a power supply issues causing a burnt out pin4 on the molex), I noticed the heat sink was loose. As I could see no other problems, I tightened up the two securing bolts, replaced the card ... and bingo! The PC boots, no red error message and the monitors are fine.

    A year on, and we had a repeat of the 'red line' error message across both monitors. Fortunately again, just removing the card, vacuuming the inside of the tower and especially the card's heat-sink and fan, and tightening the heat sink bolts and replacing the card seems to have done the trick. I do wonder if there is a slightly dodgy connection in the power connector from the PSU, or perhaps on the card itself.

    BTW 600W PSU suggested above seems OTT; my venerable Dimension 8300 runs fine on the original 250W PSU, though I have seen posts elsewhere that suggest around 300-350W would be prudent. My venerable tower system runs 2xHDD, 2xCD/DVD, plus 9800XT dual-monitor graphics, NIC etc etc.

    313 days since my last post, and the card finally gave up the ghost. Same symptoms/message, but this time I find several capacitors on the card have blown. I could buy new capacitors and repair the card - I've done this successfully with an LCD monitor power supply - but time and guaranteed access is critical I've opted to buy a replacement card instead. Fortunately they are still available if you look around.

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

How do i install my ati x1900 video card on my mac pro


That card needs extra power - more than it can get thru the PCI-E socket - so do exactly what it's said : connect an extra power cable from the power source to the card.

Video ram error 2ATI/1/4:113-A14404-118 in Apple hardware test Power Mac G5 DP 2,5 ATI Radeon 9800 XT


This one is pretty clear. Your machine is a June, 2004 model. Your video RAM is bad. Video RAM is not user-replaceable on the Radeon 9800 XT, so you will have to replace the Radeon card itself.

Swap 9800 Pro for 9700 Pro


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.
