Question about ATI RADEON X1650 Xt, (256 MB) Graphic Card
Every couple of minutes my display goes blank for about 1 second and than returns like nothing happened. When i'm playing a game or watching a movie, something that requiers higher performance from the graphics card the frequency of this event increases to about once every 10 sec or so. I'm running Windows XP and the graphics card is a Radeon X1650.
This is probably the VPU resetting itself. The radeons have the option in the control panel for allowing the VPU to reboot itself if it hangs. Could be a sign of insufficient juice from the PSU or insufficient airflow allowing the card to get too hot. I had to change my cheap 550W PSU to a better quality 500W unit to get enough current (amps) on the 12V rail for my AMD CPU and radeon cards. Cheaper PSUs tend to have high current 3V3 and 5V rails but poor 12V capability.
