ATI Radeon 9800xl Problem. It runs fine for about a couple of minutes then the screen goes all funny. e.g. lines and green things and you can not see things clearly.

    I've got the same problem.

    Sometimes there's nothing and everything looks perfect.

    Then these lines start comming up, like an surface on the screen. Can be all sorts of colours and often it starts to kinda of "flimmer(?)" everywhere, making it impossible to see anything.

    Did the solution work for you? And what does fan mean? Is it the cooler?

    Can you recommend suitable replacements for the Radeon 9800XL. Is there any benefit in upgrading to a 256mb graphics card.

Have you checked that the card is not over-heating?

Remove the side panel of your computer and then when you can see the inside of your computer and see the card clearly, turn on the computer...

WARNING...observe only, do not at any time attempt to touch any interior hardware parts under any circumstances whilst your computer is powered on, this is dangerous and could lead to serious electrical shock if you touch any parts whilst the computer is powered up!

Observe the following: is the fan on the card working? When the screen goes 'funny' is the fan working, is it running slow etc? If the fan seems to be working perfectly fine then it is an onboard circuit problem in which case you will need to replace the ATI card or go back to using the onboard ATI.

Hope this helps.

You must uninstall your previous video card drivers before installing the new card, especially if they were nVidia drivers.

It could be related to the display resolution settings. If you can boot into "VGA mode", that should get you started.

Screen periodically goes blank for about a second


This is probably the VPU resetting itself. The radeons have the option in the control panel for allowing the VPU to reboot itself if it hangs. Could be a sign of insufficient juice from the PSU or insufficient airflow allowing the card to get too hot. I had to change my cheap 550W PSU to a better quality 500W unit to get enough current (amps) on the 12V rail for my AMD CPU and radeon cards. Cheaper PSUs tend to have high current 3V3 and 5V rails but poor 12V capability.
