Question about ATI RADEON X1650 Xt, (256 MB) Graphic Card

1 Answer

Radeon x1650 512mb AGP video card causes a green flash when

Switching on and off programs that use Directdraw I believe. I know it's something with Directx, opengl programs don't do this to me. Besides that games run fine. I was curious if this could be a hardware fault, using updated drivers. This card causes my old PSU to blow (my fault I was using a bare bones wattage) and i've taken it out of my pc about a week after replaying my PSU, too nervous to use it now. Is it safe? I got a power supply that exceeds recommended wattage now. (The problem persisted before and after psu blew)

Lets do some basic brainstorming together.

anytime you add additional componets to your motherboard, heating is a big issue and may cause over heating of the mb, hd, ram, video.

you will need additional power or wattage out put to support additional cards, fans,

additonal with the heat needs more air flow in the system, if you do not put more cooling devices in the computer to help it stay cool you may end up buying additional parts like mb, ram, hd, because the 1 fan in the power supply doesnt have enought power to cool the system down and than they get hot and they stop functioning right, freeze ups,
shut downs, power outages and so on.

there is a web site you should look at just as a peace of mind
www.acousticpc.com

they have lots of information on cooling systems and documents to help you with this issues

i hope i helped you

Hi - I believe you might be suffering from one of two (or even both) problems. The video card sucks lots of power and I believe has a separate power connector on the card that should be connected. The type of connector varies with manufacturers; from a four pin floppy disc type to a molex type connector or even something proprietary.
Secondly -- It's recommended that you have a 350 watt or higher power supply in your system.
Either issue could keep your machine from booting.
Good Luck, Mikeywaf

Hi schawn_rolfe, i've been having the exact same problem. If the fan stops spinning and this will cause video cards to overheat and damage and system lock up or crash, i recommend you buy new agp video graphic card, to solve this broblem.

Flash tends to lag


I suggest using the Flash uninstall tool located at

And then reinstalling Flash. That will clear any issues or "stuck" registered DLL's and/or registry entries. Good Luck! :)

See if you can do a roll back on the drivers, or you may even try system restore.
If not unload the new driver and see if you can locate the old ati drivers (perhaps you still have the original cd)

Video cuts out suddenly, have to reboot


Check to see if your video card is excessively hot. It sounds as if your video card is overheating and going into thermal protection.
A lot of times, when the GPU is damaged it will overheat as one of the final signs before it's impending death.
If this is the case I would replace it.

Install Used ATI 7000 graphics card on Dell Optiplex GX270


OK, I got into Dell. Your motherboard should support an AGP card.

GX270 System Boards

Is there something in the green slot?

That is the AGP slot. If there is something in it, remove it. The ATI card should work in it if it is an AGP card.

No display at post


There are a few things that can cause no display on the monitor.
That single beep means POST = Power On Self Test. Post has tested everything on you're board to be good.
The cable between video card & monitor may be bad or not connected correctly (Swap out the cable as last resort).
2. You're monitor is defective, try swapping it with known working monitor.
3. You're video card is not functioning.
Lastly, when you reset the system cmos/bios everything went back to default. This means you're bios is now using the onboard PCI video graphics. Remove you're radeon 9600 video card. Try booting the system. You should see display again. The only way to test you're radeon would be to boot to the bios & set bios to boot using the AGP radeon. You need to change Init Display First to AGP & not PCI. If you loose video than you know you're AGP card is bad. Reset the cmos/bios before adding another AGP card or you will not get display. This setting is on pg 3-5. Integrated Peripherals. If you need you're manual you can download it from this link: http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=NF7-S2G&fMTYPE=Socket+A

Good Luck!

VIDEO CARD!


Hi lorkan,
It seems your RV6DE-B3 refers to ATI's 7000 series video card. Listed here at the link below is the driver site for your
Radeon 7000 card.
If your running Window please update your operating system through Windows Update before installing the drivers for the Radeon card.
http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html
After the above site loads, you'll need to pick your operating system. Than click on Radeon. Scroll down the list in the last window till you see the 7000 series. Click on it.
The page it will take you to is the last software package created for the Radeon 7000. Notice the date.
I suggest you save the program in case you may need to run it again at a later time.
Create a folder on your desktop and save the program in that folder.
If you have any more question or troubles, just post them here & I'll help you solve them.
Have a good day lorkan.
