Question about Abit RX600PRO-GURU RADEON X600 PRO GURU, (256 MB) Graphic Card

1 Answer

Rpm's and graphics

Recently my video card has been degrading in performance. For example, there was a certain computer animated movie that was released a while back. It is extrememly well detailed and can only be run on a pretty good graphics card to run smoothly. It used to on my CPU, but now it's aall choppy. I changed the amount of virtual memory, erased a buttload of stuff off that particular partition and quite a few other things befor I dicided to open the OC Guru. It says that the fan on my Abit RX600PRO-GURU card is at 0 rpms and is giving a warning that says core fan abnormal. It isn't dusty at all and free spins when I do it myself, and I don't feel any air coming out from it when my cpu is running. Any suggestions (seeing as trying to adjust fan speed isn't working). Maybe I missed something.

Re: rpm's and graphics

Hi Naida, A while back I had a computer that was having all kinds of video issues after it had been on for a little bit. I pulled the video card out and like you was able to free spin the fan and didn?t see any dust worth mentioning. Also like you I ran the computer with the case open to verify the fan was actually spinning but noticed there really wasn?t much air being moved. I removed the fan from the card and to my surprise found that the cards heatsink directly underneath the center of the fan was blocked with a solid ball of dust I couldn't see before. Cleaned that out, reassembled and I was good to go. If that doesn?t do it you might consider replacing the card fan. They?re small, cheap and run full board on gaming machines. Since you?ve gotten some messages indicting your software detects 0 rpm it would be a logical and cheap thing to try. Let us know if this works and please don?t forget to rate this post.

The black ops freezes in the same place over and again i escape the chair i get punced and that is as far as i get i have reinstalled the game starting over and did not work how do i get passed that?

The graphics card doesn't support this game. Many realistic type games "Highly Realistic Graphics" need the added performance of a dedicated higher end graphics card. Example: I'm a huge gamer and I play games that you could/would play on the Xbox One or PlayStation 4. So my Gaming Video Card cost me $480 US dollars. ( High End )
Look at the recommended, supported Video Card for Black Ops and go from that point "Note" If your computer is a laptop; chances are, you will not be able to do any video upgrades. You'd just be out of luck and your laptop wasn't made for higher end games. If it is a Desktop, you might be in luck. To upgrade a desktop: (1) Available video card slot (2) Does the computer case support a video card upgrade (3) What power supply does your computer have and what WATT Power supply does the new video card need. Most higher end video cards need a higher WATT power supply - So standard power supply 350 WATT - Video upgrade average 500Watt to 800Watt.

Hope this helps, Have a great night..

A generic question about a video card - I currently have a nvidia fx5200 (I think that's it) 256MB memory on the card and I installed a fan cooler for it. I just bought a 20" lcd Monitor, but when...

Viewing movies on a computer is not really just based on how big is the video card RAM. Try watching a high resolution movie or from an original DVD. It should not pixillate as long as the file is supported and the your monitor can project clearly 256RAM is sufficient.
But if your a gamer and want a higher resolution, that is the only time you'll need not just the RAM but also the speed. If your looking for an upgrade and your not doing multitasking on you computer you should settle on 256 to 512MB but with a faster RAM DDR5.

This one really depends on the game or application your trying to use. Bioware for example most recently had an issue with Mass Effect 2 in which the game did not work well on non-dual processors to spite system specifications. The issue had to do with the movies, not the the rendered scenes. Ironically, new compression standards have made some video more intensive on lower end processors than fully 3D rendered scenes. If the problem was heating or damage to the card, you would crash after a certain amount of use, not at a certain point in the game. If you think it is the card, you can turn everything down to the lowest setting and see if the issue goes away. But I'm betting it won't. I would check the other components...make sure your system RAM is good, look for patches or forum complaints about the game your playing, and close out anything like Skype, Steam, messenger clients, etc. that your not using.

I need new grapics card for my imedia 1401

That card will not work.

That is your computer spec link. The motherboard and other parts are older and do not support that PCIe x16 card. Only PCI graphics cards will work in your PC.

No graphics card will make this PC a gaming beast but you can certainly upgrade by purchasing a PCI graphics card such as these listed here:

You can sort by price, or # of reviews and see which ones people the most. Generall a higher # of reviews and good reviews means it performs better than other similar priced products.

A cheap solution would be the 1st one listed by price:

My 1gb ram didn't make any change in my pc!

Whilst increasing the amount of RAM will help a little with certain applications it will NOT improve the performance of your PC by any noticeable amount.

Suggest full defrag and registry clean up which may help a little.

JKDefrag and CCleaner are excellent freeware programs available for download from the web.

Hope this helps and please rate this reply,
Thank you.

Graphics card causing system to shut down?

Please go into the BIOS of the system and Set the BIOS as default
  1. Restart your computer.
  2. When the computer first starts, it performs the power-on self test (POST). This test checks that all connected devices are functioning. As part of the POST, the memory is checked. During the memory test, a message will appear that tells you how to access the BIOS. For example, you may see the following message or a similar message that explains how to start the BIOS setup: PRESS DEL TO ENTER SETUPIn this example, you must press the DEL key immediately after the memory test is finished to start the setup process. You may have to press the key several times to make sure that you access the BIOS setup.

    Tip There are other keys that may provide access to the BIOS. They include the following:
    • F1
    • F2
    • F10
    If you are not sure how to access the BIOS setup, see the user manual for your computer's motherboard.
  3. Look for the Set BIOS as Default settings. You can usually use the arrow keys to move through the menus and settings.
Do that and then try to

Computer and video card memory/ram

Hello there.

Answers to questions are reported on the website.
Graphics card memory is independent of main system memory. Your graphics card has 256MB of memory dedicated to graphical tasks, such as playing videos, games and animations. Main system memory is seperate and is used for loading programs and applications.

New graphics cards will have even more memory, so to answer your question: no video memory on the graphics card does not have to match main system memory in the computer.

Possible times when main system ram is used by the graphics card is when the graphics hardware is integrated into the motherboard. Please click here to find out more about graphics video memory.

Hope this helps.

Its most likely the video cards fault,
however a bad PSU can cause these problems.

No Power To The Computer
Here you must first check the wall outlet for power by connecting another device such as a radio or lamp to be sure power is present. If the computer is connected through a surge protector, check it as well.
If the wall out has power, check the power cable going to the PC to see if AC voltage is making its way to the system unit. Do this with the use of a multimeter.
If there is power, you will have to open the PC and check for power from the power supply to the motherboard.
When using a multimeter to check voltage, be sure you have a good ground for the black lead of the multimeter.
Rebooting Problems
One main problem you may face with an ailing power supply is that it may reboot the computer without any warning. All information is lost and it seems as though this happens at the worst possible time.
Booting errors when the computer first starts up may be another indicator of this component going on the blink.
Power Distribution Problems
When the power supply begins to fail, you may receive power at one device and not another. For example, the hard drive may receive power, but the CD-ROM drive has nothing at all.
Another headache that would cause rebooting is the intermittent power going to the drives or the motherboard itself. Follow the steps below to check your power supply should you experience some of the above problems.
