Question about ATI RADEON X1650 Graphic Card

2 Answers

Radeon x1650 pro graphics card isn't working correctly

I hope someone can help me:

I am running microsoft xp professional service pack 2
AMD Athlon 64 processor
3300+
2.41GHz, 896mb of ram

I am trying to install the Radeon x1650 pro, but when I put it in the motherboard, hook up power, plug in the monitor and turn the computer back on all I get is squiggly colorful lines. I'm not sure what's wrong so any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

    Yes, I used the disk provided with the vid card to install the drivers.

    Do you have another video card to use to get the drivers installed for your new card?

Have you tried a different monitor? Maybe the monitor you are using doesn't have the resolution needed. I had that happen to me before a long time ago and it ended up being the monitor was to old. Another time was that the resolution was set to high. It's worth a try.

Usually that happens only when the card isn't well seated on the slot, or damaged. I guess you've already checked the card is well seated and pushed into the slot. If you had, then the card can be damaged, probably from static or maybe even it has overheated when it worked and something broke, I'm sorry to tell.

Can i run ati radeon x1650 512 on asus k8N motherboard


Yes you can run the AGP version of the Radeon 1650 pro on your system. It is always best & recommended to upgrade memory in pairs. You could upgrade to `gb by purchasing a 1 gb kit which would be 512 x 2. That way you have a matching pair of RAM modules. As for a cpu upgrade you can go to the Asus website and see what cpu's are supported by your motherboard. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Screen going blank for a second or two while video freezes then jumps.


If you have on board graphics try removing video card and reboot when computer rebooted turn it of and refit card and restart when restarted computer should recognize new hard ware and should find the already installed drivers if not try installing drivers again
Sometimes windows does not recognize new hardware until its refitted
had this problem with modems alot and the above method solved it

The game stopped


Hello matbedui,
If you think the Radeon card is overheating you can check this by simply touching the card after it's been running for sometime. Some Radeon cards (high end) do have this problem. PC cases that do not have sufficient fresh air flow cause problems not just to video cards but to everything inside the case. The design of the HIS Radeon X1650 is less than sufficient. Keeping air flow contained. One way in & one way out. This issue is so important many companies creat sites to help you cool your card.

Your Radeon X1650 Pro IceQ II runs ATI's chips. Installing the latest software is recomended. Download from here:
http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html
Pick your OS. Than pick Radeon. Scroll down to your X1600 series. You can also update through HIS. Their software is twice the size of the ATI software.

Good luck!
