Question about ATI RADEON X1650 Xt, (256 MB) Graphic Card
I have had similar problems with graphic cards, and in most case i had to replace the VGA card. A technician i know gave me a temporary solution (though he had no idea why it sorted the problem up), where he would take his hot soldering iron over any place where there were solder points (not touch but over it so that they got heated up).
Once this was done the VGA card actually worked for a while (2 more months before the problems came back). I tried the same with my home soldering iron (which was not as powerful as the unit used by the technician which said 400C!) and this only solved the problem for a few hours! So basically you need a powerful soldering iron.
Another factor i have heard is that if your power supply is not good, the graphic card struggles to work properly and fails after a while. The X1650 is no power hog like the some of the higher end solutions, but in case you have a generic power supply saying 300-400W this could be another cause for your problem.
