Install new video card on Ubunutu

I want to add an Ati R7000 video card to my Ubuntu system, but I can not find info on how to do it properly. I already tried just installing it and booting, but it came up as running is low graphics mode and then I ended up with brown and lines across the screen. I uses this as my media system and I play games on in since they have some of the most interesting games free with the system.

    I don't have the disk so I would have to download the drivers, but I can't find the right ones. Also If I install the card the screen will just hand on the bars and you can not even get to the desktop, even if I leave it on the screen for awhile.

    Its the ATI Radeon 7000. I am currently using the built in graphic cards, but I need DVI for the new monitor. Am I better off doing a reinstall of the OS to set it up or whats the best method?

You need to install the graphics card, start the system, install the drivers that came with the video card then restart. This should fix all the color and line problems.

After installing new ATI HD4670 video card I boot system hear no beeps computer powers on but screen is black

I assume you have the driver for the new video card if not you can download it from ATI website.
Try booting the computer in the safe mode and remove the driver of the old card, restart the computer and install the driver for your new video card.
You can also put the old video card back and remove its driver then install the new video card and driver.
Best of luck to you.

After installing new ATI HD4670 video card on my Gateway zx6810 I boot system hear no beeps computer powers on but screen is black


Is this new video card the only video source on the PC (i.e. there is no other VGA connections on the PC)?

Without knowing the make and model of the PC, I will list the most common issue when replacing the video card in a PC.

1. Connect the monitor to each available VGA connection and boot the computer - to see if any VGA output is working

2. When you find a working VGA output, go into BIOS and change the VIDEO settings to either allow BOTH the onboard and add in video OR allow the add in video only. Save the changes and turn the computer off.

3. Move the video cable to the add in video card, turn the computer on and see if the BIOS is using the new Video card

I have issues with the second ATI FirePro V7800 card. I am running Window 7 pro - 64 bit. The motherboard is ASUS Sabertooth X58. Intel Corei7. Corsair 24 GB. Both two cards were working fine...

In order to further troubleshoot this issue, I would recommend the following:

Uninstall the ATI drivers from your computer.
Shut down the computer.
Remove the ATI card from your computer, and connect your monitor to the onboard video adapter.
Turn on the computer.
Ensure the ATI software was infact removed.
Shut down the computer
Reinstall the ATI video Card
Turn On the computer
Reinstall the ATI drivers ensuring to select the proper "CrossFire" configuration

Need a solution to get Ubuntu to work with this video card

ATI cards are always a bit of an issue with Ubuntu - ATI offer very little support, in contrast nVidia are very impressive.

There seems to be a lot of issues with ATIs and Jaunty so you're probably best to stick with Intrepid (8.10).

Look into fglrx.

Adjusting video card ram

You cannot add more ram to your graphic card, If you want more ram for optimum system performance I recommend buying a new ATI, or NVIDIA graphic card to replace the old one. they both have the best cards on the market and visit their site at NVIDIA or for more cards information and where to buy them.
I recommend 256MB RAM for PCI systems, 512MB RAM for AGP systems and 1GB RAM for PCI-EXPRESS systems.
