When the card is properly installed and the system properly configured, you should at least be getting the POST screen, since that is not driver dependent. And Windows knows to go to the default standard VGA driver when it can't find specific drivers for a card. So we're looking at a hardware issue, not software.

Here are the troubleshooting steps I would take. Some would seem obvious and you've probably already tried them, but I like to be complete:

Is the monitor switchable betwwen two inputs? Do you have it set to the correct input (i.e. VGA vs DVI)? hit the selection button on the front panel, just in case.

Is the card properly seated? Take it out and put it back in. Also, oddly enough, reseating RAM can fix a lot of problems, even seemingly unrelated ones.

Is there an on-board VGA connector? If so, switch over to that and see if you get picture. Then go into CMOS settings and look for a video setting that would make the add-in card the default display. Or simply disable the on-board VGA.

Check the pins on your monitor connection, make sure none are bent.

If none of these get you a picture, I would suggest a defective graphics card.

ATI x1650 Pro Stops!?


For this card they recomment at leat a power supply rating of 450 watts. If you have lower than this then I would suggest upgrading the power supply. A 550 watt psu is reasonably priced and should give you plenty of power for future use. Hope this helps.

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
