Question about ATI RADEON HD 2400 PRO Graphic Card

1 Answer

Installed New RAM, Now Have Display Problems (color)

I have a Dell Inspiron 530 with Windows XP. I just installed 1 GB of RAM into my dual-core processor, and when I rebooted the computer the display was tinted magenta (with no green). I connected the monitor - bypassing the video card - and had no color problems. (Of course, the computer would not boot until I reconnected the monitor correctly.)

I tried removing the new RAM and rebooting, and this did not solve the color problems. If you need more information about my system, please let me know.

    I tried to remove the video card but the connectors in the back of the computer make it difficult to take out. Is there anything else I can do (short of taking it in to a shop)?

  • valseven Jan 16, 2009

    I apologize, it does boot plugged into the onboard video.

    What I meant about the connectors was not the video cable itself; I meant the input directly attached to the video card. It extends out of the back of the case, and I don't know how to detach it to remove the video card and reseat it.

    Thank you for the instructions, chrichner. I did manage to reseat the video card; however, everything is still pink. It must be something with the video card itself.

It appears something has happened with the video card or connector especially if it displays fine with the onboard video and original memory. Disconnect power and reinsert the video card into it's slot.

    What you described sounds like a video cable issue. Look at the end for bent or broken pins. Can you borrow another cable to try? Are you using the same cable to connect to the onboard video as you are using for the video card?

    You would have to remove the connectors from the back to take it to a shop anyway, so why not give it a try and remove and reseat the video card?

    I don't understand why it will not boot plugged into the onboard video though.

  • Curtis Richner Jan 16, 2009

    Are you saying there is something connected to the card externally like an adapter? Here is the instructions form the DELL Website for removing cards for the 530.

  • Curtis Richner Jan 21, 2009

    If the same cable and/or adapters are used to connect to the onboard video with no problems, then yes I would have to agree it is the card itself that is the problem.

Video card upgrade Dell Inspiron 530


If anything, it's simply not compatible with your specs. "Vista 32 bit" alone kind of instilled some doubt in me. But who knows, try surfing around Nvidia's site here

You can try their Option 2 to automatically scan your rig and find a "suitable" driver for it, or try the links below on that site "Beta and Older Drivers" and see if any of the other versions work.

Dell inspiron 530 mobo problem


Yes - both MOBO are same form factor.
You will need to remove the backplate (that is the part that surrounds the ports) from the case.
You will need to insert the backplate for the new MOBO in the case.

The CPU and RAM should be direct swap.

I can't install AUTOCAD 2009 in my windows XP computer.It asks to install direct 3D


Most probably your hardware ie graphic card do not support software requirements.

Autocad 2009 system requirements for Win XP.
32-bit AutoCAD 2009
Running under Windows XP:
•Microsoft Windows XP SP2 operating system
•Intel® Pentium® 4 processor or AMD Athlon®, 2.2 GHz or greater
or
Intel or AMD Dual Core processor, 1.6 GHz or greater
•1 GB RAM
•750 MB free hard disk space for installation
•1024x768 VGA with true color
•Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 (SP1 or higher)
If you are using AutoCAD for 3D modeling, you should bump up your system as follows:
•Intel Pentium 4 processor or AMD Athlon, 3.0 GHz or greater
or
Intel or AMD Dual Core processor, 2.0 GHz or greater
•2 GB RAM or greater
•2 GB of additional free hard disk space
•1,280 x 1,024 32-bit color video display adapter (true color) 128 MB or greater, OpenGL or Direct3D capable workstation class graphics card.

Hope it helps.

I have a hp ellitebook 8440p and it shutsdown when running autocad lt2009


1. Autocad uses a lot of memory. Make sure you the maximum ram installed. You can check the virtual memory if that does not work.
2. Shutting down in the middle of an operation can be that the unit is overheating. Use a cooler, docking station, or stand the book on the side with the laptop lid open about 45 degree angle. Leave it on to see if it shuts down within the same time as when it was laying flat with Autocad running. If it takes longer, the problem may be a fan not cooling properly or allow more cooling during the use of Autocad.
