    I am experiencing the same banding symptoms on my monitor that are attributed to failure of the 128 MB DDR ATI Radeon 9800 Graphics card that came installed as original equipment in my Dell Dimension 8300 (purchase date June 2003). I'm looking for a replacement card. Any recommendations?

    I am having the same issue. I plugged the monitor into a laptop and had no issues. I then vacuumed and dusted inside and outside the computer and reseated the video card. It appears to have worked so far.

    Solution so far. I went to MyComputer to find out about the video card 128 DDR ATI Radeon 9800 and then went to the Dell Support Center Icon on my machine and it went to the Dell website with other video cards. My computer is a 2003.

Did you try the card on another PC? Maybe the motherboard is Expiring. I recommend you change to a new motherboard. because, sometimes when motherboards get too old, the pins inside the AGP and PCI slots get fried and won't give out enough power. try the graphic card on another PC.

How to covert to Mac edition (ATI Radeon 9800 Pro)

Even if you do this, I would not guarantee it will work. Before you destroy it and void the warranty, you could probably return it or sell it on eBay. It's still a decent card for a AGP variety.

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!

Need graphic card upgrade for Dell Dimension 4500 w/ pixel shader

This is an older machine that has a 4x AGP port for graphics cards. The good news is that cards for this slot are cheap...usually in the 30-50 dollar range. The downside is that you wont get the greatest performance out of them. I would recommend going with a Geforce FX 5200.

ATI Radeon x1600 Pro unstable in Dell XPS desktop

If you have the latest drivers installed, try uninstalling them, and going back to the 2nd most recent driver released. Sometimes the latest drivers have issues. Work your way back trying multiple drivers if possible until you find the sweet spot. You might try this website, it has a driver cleaner that removes old drivers. Then try reinstalling the driver of your choice.

Ati radeon 9800 error message on bootup

the error means that you do not have a power cod connected on the card or the power supplied by the PS is not enough for the card to run.

Remove power from the parts in the PC that you are not using anymore and try to reinstall the card.

worst case is getting another power supply about 600 watts

ATI RADEON X1650 Pro Problem

The graphics card might not be working in sync with your processor. Get it checked WHY this is happening. Probably a faulty connection somewhere. See if you can find one before getting it checked.

Swap 9800 Pro for 9700 Pro

You must uninstall the current driver and reinstall the driver for the 9800 Pro first:
Power supply recommended is 300watt for each, so that is not a factor. It would have to be a driver conflict.
