The power supply should be efficient enough. You have all the drivers downloaded, so I would suggest upgrading your memory. If you only have 1 gig of ram, half of it is going straight to video card.
I also suggest downloading "glary utilities" program which is free. It will boost and clean registry, remove trojans, spyware, duplicate files, adware, manage start up programs, and so much more.

Also when running games, it is a good idea to shut off any other running programs. Every one that will allow you to.
Just not enough memory in the system.
I would recommend 2.5 or more.

    I play many games on my XP. I also downloaded service pack 2 which has a little boost. Other than that, you have a great system. Memory plays THE BIGGEST role when playing games. As does the processor which I see you have the 2.4 and should have no problems. I would get more ram.
    On my system, I have to use 2.5 or the game lags and freezes like crazy.
    Those aftermarket video cards **** up the memory.

I doubt it's your power supply, unless you have a very low quality one. It could be that your supply is defective, however.

You should check to make sure that your games are DX9 compatible, because if you're running in DX10 mode, that may cause incompatibility problems. After all, you're running some relatively old equipment. I don't think AGP is even supported by new boards.

I would recommend downloading a registry cleaner called CCleaner, and just keep running the registry clean function until no more errors come up. If you upgraded your operating system, it may not have installed (or uninstalled) your NET frameworks properly, and so it could be referencing different versions of the same software simultaneously, leading to a crash. A registry cleaner will clear up a lot of the bugs associated with uninstalls.

If that fails, go into your BIOS on computer startup, and poke around. It's possible that your computer doesn't have some features enabled, such as an external graphics card.

If you're overclocking the card, you should stop. It may cause it to become unstable.

If none of these work, I would recommend mailing the card back in to whomever you purchased it from. Your card should have a manufacturers warranty of at least a year. If you have been overclocking, your warranty is null and void on the party anyway, but you can still give it a shot.

Can i run ati radeon HD3650 512mb on asus k8N motherboard


firstly you need to make sure *********** board has a PCIe slot or a AGP... this is where your ATI HD3650 will go...see the graphic 512mb has nothing to with your main system RAM which is also 512mb.. so they wont be any problems as such and both will work together without any problems... but i suggest you to add another 512mb to your system RAM.. the difference between DDR and DDR2 is that... DDR2 is a bit newer and is faster in terms of memory read/write/access... do let me know if u have any futher problems....

Can i run ati radeon x1650 512 on asus k8N motherboard


Yes you can run the AGP version of the Radeon 1650 pro on your system. It is always best & recommended to upgrade memory in pairs. You could upgrade to `gb by purchasing a 1 gb kit which would be 512 x 2. That way you have a matching pair of RAM modules. As for a cpu upgrade you can go to the Asus website and see what cpu's are supported by your motherboard. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Screen going blank for a second or two while video freezes then jumps.


If you have on board graphics try removing video card and reboot when computer rebooted turn it of and refit card and restart when restarted computer should recognize new hard ware and should find the already installed drivers if not try installing drivers again
Sometimes windows does not recognize new hardware until its refitted
had this problem with modems alot and the above method solved it

Hi noxiney, you're MSI motherboard does have 1 opened AGP 8x4x slot. You can install & run the ATI Radeon X1650 PRO AGP. You can not run PCI-Express because there are no PCI-E slots on the board. There are PCI (White in color) on the board but the AGP slot is much faster than the PCI (White in color slots). The manual states the AGP card can only support 1.5volt video cards & not 3.3volt AGP cards. (Keep this in mind when looking for an AGP card).
Below is a link to a bunch of AGP 8x4x video cards. One or two include DDR2 memory. Carefull where you buy. Check the warranty. (Longer is better). The first one on the list would be compatible. Its not DDR2 but it does have 512MB of memory.

This card is 1.5v compatable.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3101648&CatId=318
& this is compatable.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1642902&CatId=318
Just remember, if the card can run both 8x & 4x it should support the 1.5volt needed to function on the MB.

Enjoy!

ATI RADEON X1650 Pro, AGP Graphic Card 512MB compatibility


Maybe this post is a bit old, but on last deceber I bought an AGP 512MB ATI Radeon X1650 PRO for my Foxconn motherboard and I must say that it's simply awesome!
I can play most games on mid-high settings on reasonable resolutions (most on 1024x768) with good FPS (except with Crysis... but let's face it, did Crytek bought a time machine to warp a 2010 game??).
So, if you already have it, then congratulations, and if you still are thinking on buying it, then what are you waiting for!?
Also, it's AGP x8, if your motherboard support x8, then it should run perfectly fine.

Also, I have a bit of problems trying to run Prey on the X1650...
It always appears an error... it's not of much importance, as I have much better games, but I haven't tried it with high fancy graphics... :P
