Question about ATI RADEON 9800 PRO (256 MB) Graphic Card

1 Answer

Swap 9800 Pro for 9700 Pro

I have 2 computers with ATI Radeon AGP video cards, both work just fine. One card is a Radeon 9800 Pro on an ECS Intel motherboard with a 400W PSU and the other is a Radeon 9700 Pro on an Asus AMD motherboard with a 380W PSU both computers use the latest video drivers from ATI.

Now, I want to use the 9800 Pro in the computer that currently has the 9700 Pro, but when I exchange the 9800 card for the 9700 card there is NO video signal prior to post. I've checked the bios for the correct AGP VGA setting, that didn't help.

Re: 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.

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.

ATI (AMD) does not "technically" support AGP products, but go to this link.

To download the driver. Versions 9.6 and 9.7 will work, depending on your OS. Just download and install the drivers and the yellow exclamation mark will go away.

5 beeps is processor(cpu) failure

are they long? short?

Try another processor on the computer and see if it works.
do you get the same beeps if you place the old card back in?

Whats the brand and model of the motherboard?

its reads between the cpu and memory and also between the expansion slots, and possibly on top of a heatsink

Comparable cards to the ATI All In Wonder 9700 Pro 128 MB

Hello there. The Radeon 9700 Pro was a high end graphics card in its time. Today the latest Radeon cards are 3870X2, 3870 and 3850 models. The 3850, while mid-high end range, would be a substantial upgrade from the Radeon 9700 Pro.

If you are planning to upgrade your system, make sure you choose the correct type of card (AGP/PCI-E) and that your current system has a good enough power supply to power a new upgrade.

Hope this helps.
