Installing a Dell RADEON 7500 AGP video card into a Compaq Evo SFF


I recently acquired a used RADEON 7500 AGP video card off of ebay to put into my Compaq Evo. I needed an s-video out so the integrated video would not do. I installed the card and it works but its a bit buggy since the necessary drivers are not installed yet. So, I checked out ATIs site and the driver program they have (catylist I think its called) did not work. It gave me a failed launch message "No such interface supported"

I get the same message when I tried to install the ATI drivers from Dell's site. I figured that would be the case since it claims its for the Optiplex.

So, am I screwed with this card or is there another way to get it to work?

There are no previous video card drivers since the original is integrated into the mobo. I have .net 2 installed and I will try running the uninstaller and then reinstall catylst.

Did you remove the previous video cards drivers from the control panel? The Catalyst Control Center requires Microsoft’s .NET Framework version 2.0. To remove what might have installed or your old ATI software run this uninstaller for Radeon. Download here:
Try your install again.

Hi - I believe you might be suffering from one of two (or even both) problems. The video card sucks lots of power and I believe has a separate power connector on the card that should be connected. The type of connector varies with manufacturers; from a four pin floppy disc type to a molex type connector or even something proprietary.
Secondly -- It's recommended that you have a 350 watt or higher power supply in your system.
Either issue could keep your machine from booting.
Good Luck, Mikeywaf

You can try reinstalling the firmware for the video card, but if that doesn't work your video card is probably dead and you'll need a new video card. The firmware is what controls the video card, so if the computer shut off while the firmware was in the process of being rewritten, there's a good chance some of the code needed to run the card got erased or scrambled.

Can i upgrade radeon 7500 on my on compaq evo laptop to 8500

You can upgrade to any card, as long as it fits in the case and has the same connection to the motherboard. You can either post the model of your laptop, so I can check the cmpatibility, or try to find those two out yourself. I hope this helps, Yannick

Cant utilize extended monitor function in XP w/ onboard chipset as other VGA out

You cannot use both the onboard video and a separate card at the same time. Are you trying to use multiple monitors? Your video card must support that if you are, and the Radeon 7500 does not mention that it does. If it does, the ATI Catalyst drivers will have the option.

I have no display after installing a radeon x800

Make sure you install your drivers for the new graphics card before you actually put it in.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Appreciate the direct "ask Me".

Some motherboards require a separate AGP port driver to be installed before the drivers of the AGP video card could be recognized. This is specially so for 8X. Perhaps the solution requires that you install the complete motherboard drivers including the AGP port before installing the ATI 9600XT drivers.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

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
