Question about ATI Radeon X800 XT Mac Edition AGP Video Card Graphic Card
After 2 months of pretty good working of my ATI X800 XT Mac Edition on my dual 1.8 G5 PowerMac, my Mac began starting up in open firmware mode; moreover, from stop mode it suddenly shuts down when i wake it up by keyboard or mouse click, but not by moving mouse. Exiting or booting from open firmware makes the Mac working absolutely normally.
Apple official support laboratory made all possible trials including new buffer battery, but no way. At least they took off the XT800 XT and changed to native GE FORCE FX 5000, and all turned perfectly well. But they could not give me a reasonable explanation, and i still do need that faster graphic card. Can anyone solve my problem? Could it be necessary some ATI ROM update and where could i find it?
ATI website support was not useful.
My Mac is:
Power Mac G5
CPU: PowerPC G5 (3.0)
No CPU: 2
CPU speed : 1.8 GHz
L2 Cache (per CPU): 512 KB
Memory: 3 GB
Bus speed : 900 MHz
Boot ROM v. 5.1.8f7
OSX Tiger v. 10.4.10
Thanks for your kind attention and help!
I have the same card and many of the same issues. I got an RMA number and had to contact ATI after "Clear Business Days" to get a status report. Having finally gotten a response, I find out that it will be 10 to 12 WEEKS before the card comes back.
Knowing what I know now, I would not purchase this card again.

Go back to the ATI page and sign up for an RMA number under warranty repair/returns. It sounds like your card went kaput. They should be able to fix it for you, although you'll be without your card for about 10 to 14 days.
