Question about ATI RADEON X1300 Pro 256MB PCIE Graphic Card

1 Answer

Blinking monitor first 15 minutes computer is on...

I have a brand new 24" (Soyo) widescreen LCD monitor, and a brand new ATI Radeon x1300 (256 mb) video card, and I'm using a DVI connection to my Dell Dimension 1100.


My monitor blinks off every 5-10 seconds starting when I turn on the computer (as soon as the windows logo shows up) and after boot for about 15 minutes. Driving me NUTS. I've updated my BIOS, updated the video card driver, the monitor doesn't have software (Plug & Play). Like I said, after 15 or so minutes - I'm good. But whenever the computer is first turned on, or more importantly whenever it wakes from sleep mode, I can't really function for 15 minutes. Ideas?

I have this same problem. Try to disable the service ATI Hotkey Poller in the windows (you can use the msconfig). It seems to be all right for me now.

Good luck !

I have 5 strips of redish lines on my screen. Do I need a new graphics card? My computer is a Dell xps.

This could be but I suspect that you monitor is needing service.
1. To isolate connect a known good LCD to the pc graphics card ( the ATI RADEON)
If the lines are not visible then yes a new video card is needed.
2. check the video cable to see if you have it well connected to the video port.
this sometime will render intermittent screen and vertical color lines.
3. check video cable for bent pins.
I hope this helps. Have great day!

Their is a reason that it crashes and it is not because of the game if  it crashes at other times too. Toom much HEAT is usually the problem. Look for slow or stopped fans. Dust on the heatsink.Run the antivirus. After that clean and defrag the hard drive. Let me knw that that did not take care of the problem.

Try connecting an external monitor to the laptop. After your computer is attached to an external monitor, press the <Fn> key and the <F8> (CRT, LCD) key to switch the video image to the display. If the external monitor works, the computer display or video controller may be defective.
