Hello, have Vista Home Basic. I just installed a Sapphire Radeon 7000 - Graphics Adapter - Radeon 7000 - PCI - 64 MB Problem: When I plug the monitor into the Radeon 7000, I get a black screen. If I...

Does the box say it is supported? These new 64-bit systems are still just getting going.
I tried xp64 but switched back because most of my hardware would not work.

Did it ever work? again alot of stuff is done with the 64 bit opsys.

Go into the bios, and make the new board the primary display.
In my experience, ATI needs to be primary. Just switch to PCI Primary.

If you haven't done this yet, you probably need to uninstall the software, too.
so it can setup correctly.

please rate this answer

Black Screen when playing 3D games on ATI Radeon 9550 X1050 Serie

the game resolution is not supported by your monitor....this is the reason your screen goes blank....
by the next time if the screen goes blank, press alt+ctrl+del together and check are you able to see the task manager....
if you can see the task manager, then close the game from that window by selecting end task....
if you cant see the task manager, then press ctrl+alt+del together 2 times and check....
if nothing works, then try by checking with any HD monitors if available with you or with your friends...

I installed the ATI x1650 but the monitor is blank when I turn on

Yes the card does support the screen. If you have blank screen right from turn on, chack that you have not plugged the monitor into the onboard graphics port instead of your Radeon. If you have plugged it into the right port then you have hardware problems. Could be any of the following:
1. Monitior
2. Video Card
3. System memory
4. Motherboard
5. Powersupply
6. CPU

Try a different monitor and get back to me if you want troubleshooting tips.

Blank screen after boot up

Remove the card, plug into your built-in card. Start your PC in safe mode. Uninstall all ATI software and delete the card from Device Manager. Restart. Reinstall the ATI drivers. Power down. Install the card and connect your monitor to it. The OS will find the card in default mode - let it. Restart. When it comes back up, you will be able to select the full range of operating modes.

How to install ATI Radeon x1050 card to two screens on windows 2003

ATI can get confusing. You might have installed ATI's CCC, "Catalyst Control Center", along with the display drivers. I suggest you download the latest combo-CCC and drivers for your video card. ATI comes out with new drivers pretty fast. When using dual monitors CCC is where you want to setup your monitors. After you set up the catalyst control center you'll find it much easyer to assign what monitor displays what. One other suggestion. ATI will want you to uninstall any other software for your ATI card even though all you have is ATI software.
