Dead video card in one computer and alive in another

I have had this card for almost a year and it's been working well. Every so often the computer would start up without communicating with the monitor. This became more and more regular. Now it won't startup at all. The strange thing is when i put the card in another computer it works fine. and when I put another card in my computer, my computer works. I've tried reinstalling the drivers. I figure it must be a problem with the setting.

Re: Dead video card in one computer and alive in another

What you can do is to try and reset the bios settings then try the card do this you will need to look for the clear Setting Jumper on the motherboard..It should be right close to the battery there. move the jumper to the other pin and back..that should clear the bios settings and hopefully allows the computer to accept the card again. google image search--clear bios jumper---to view how the jumper looks if u have not seen one

The fan is dead, do you know where i can get replacement?

Contact a computer store for a replacement fan or cooler. You may also place a wanted ad on Gumtree or Cragslist, informing others that you are in need of a dead but working cooler/fan for the MSI 7600GS. You could also contact MSI.

Check E-bay, some-times fans are removed from dead cards and sold as refurbished, which will do.

Take care!

Your card is actually archived and now only has limited driver support.
It sound like it has trouble readfing or is having resolution problems but, if you haven't updated driver recently, that could be the problem. There is no support for Windows 7. The link above is the only driver with Catalyst Control for your card. You may want to consider a new one.

You can try reinstalling the firmware for the video card, but if that doesn't work your video card is probably dead and you'll need a new video card. The firmware is what controls the video card, so if the computer shut off while the firmware was in the process of being rewritten, there's a good chance some of the code needed to run the card got erased or scrambled.

Cant utilize extended monitor function in XP w/ onboard chipset as other VGA out

You cannot use both the onboard video and a separate card at the same time. Are you trying to use multiple monitors? Your video card must support that if you are, and the Radeon 7500 does not mention that it does. If it does, the ATI Catalyst drivers will have the option.

Ati radeon 9600 video card

what you have the ATI card hooked up can you see the boot screen? If you can see that you might want to try going into safe mode and making sure your graphics settings aren't set beyond the capability of your monitor. If you can't see the boot screen then your card might be dead.
