Question about ATI RADEON X1650 Graphic Card

No signal to monitor

When I install the card and drivers, the computer sometimes boots up to the Vista desktop, but soon begins to reboot repeatedly. Other times (more often than not) after booting up, the monitor displays a prompt saying "NO SIGNAL"

Mainboard : ASUSTek
Chipset: nVidia nForce4
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 5700+ @ 2211 MHz

  1. Verify card is seated properly.
  2. Check bios settings. ie. disable onboard video, enable PNP OS installed, enable "assign IRQ to vga", disable shadowing and caching, enable passive release, enable delayed transaction, vga boot sequence: AGP, set graphics aperture size to 128MB, disable turbo modes.
  3. Verify power supply is at least 350 watts.
  4. Reboot into safe mode (press F8 right after the BIOS POST screen and before the windows loading screen) and use the program, Driver Cleaner Pro to remove Nvidia video driver remnants. Don't select all of the options, just the Nvidia driver and the plain ATI selection.
  5. Verify the monitor cable is securely connected to both the monitor and the computer.
  6. Verify that you have connected the cable to the vga port on the card and not the onboard vga port. (I'm not implying that you are dumb or anything like that, but sometimes even the best of us, overlooks the simple things... especially me! LOL)
  7. Verify the monitor cable is good.
  8. (Last but not least), try using another monitor to test. (Could be an incompatibility with the monitor.)

I have a samsung 973v..the problem is that "there is no display"..what part of the monitor should i check..?


Cause:
  • Monitor failure
  • Video card or onboard video device failure
  • Driver conflict or improper driver installation
  • Power issue
  • Loose device connection

Resolution:
  1. Verify the computer and monitor has power and is actually turned on.
    • Not turned on? Well… turn it on. J
    • No power? – Make sure power connections are in and secure. Reseat them to verify.
    • Make sure their power bar is on. (If they have one.)
    • If the monitor still has no power, try it directly to the wall and another outlet.
    • Still no power on the monitor, RPL if in warranty and is the original monitor or Op sale a new one.
    • If the tower has no power, try step 5. If still no power see No power troubleshooting.
  2. Verify the connections are secure. Reseat them to verify this.
  3. Remove the monitor connection from the tower, check if the monitor self test appears. (If may take a few seconds) If it appears, the monitor is fine. If it doesn’t, bad monitor!
  4. Replace it if in warranty (and is the original monitor) or Op sale a new one!
  5. Does the owner have picture in POST (Power on Self Test) or in the Bios? Do they lose it as soon as Windows loads? (If the computer has no POST or Bios go directly to step 7)
  6. If they lose picture as soon as windows loads, boot to safe mode
    • Check for multiple video adapters, if there are two, try disabling the one the user is not using. (Usually a problem with onboard video overriding a video card).
    • If they are exactly the same try uninstalling one and rebooting. It might be a ghost driver.
    • If the ghost driver reappears after rebooting, try disabling it like it is a device. (Because it might be.)
    • If only one device is listed, uninstall the video driver. Reboot the PC and install the driver off of the driver disk.
  7. If the issue repeats, uninstall the video driver again, get the user into windows normally and Doc-express them the updated driver. Give the SR# and your audix. If this issue happens even with an updated driver, you are looking at service for a potential hardware issue.
  8. Do a hardware reset: Unplug the power from the wall and hold the power button in for 20 seconds. Try and boot. Check for onboard video as well as a video card. If the owner has both, try the onboard video. If it works. Check the device manager and try installing the video card properly. If it is installed properly, try disabling the onboard. Then switch it back to the video card. If the PC does not have both onboard and a video card. Proceed to the next step.
  9. Open the tower and reseat the video card. (Make sure the owner has the power off and unplugged. Also make sure they touch a metal part of the computer to discharge static (IE the metal frame or power supply)
  10. Still no video after reseating the card? It may be the video card or something on the motherboard.
  11. Remove the video card completely and try booting. Does the motherboard beep? If it does, the motherboard is fine and you should replace the video card if in warranty. If out of warranty, op sale a new one. If the motherboard does not beep, it may be a bad motherboard or something attached to it. (Note: Not all motherboards have beep codes, check the source!)
  12. If you are unsure if the video card is actually causing the problem, service may be the best option

Screen will not display


Hi,
Have you ensured that your display card driver AND correct monitor driver is installed. This is to make sure that your display card only generates signals that your Acer monitor is capable of handling. If you do not have the driver CD for your monitor you can download the software from www.acer.com. The problem is most likely that your display card is generating a refresh rate which your monitor cant handle. Go to your display properties and lower the refresh rate of your display card and see if this solves the problem.
Best wishes,

Please can anyone help me i have recently upgraded my monitor from a xerox 19'' to a samsung 23'' syncmaster now with the monitor in standby i turn on my acer t180 and the green light in the on button...


I assume you are running windows. First off you need to boot into safe mode by pressing F5 repeatedly as soon as you start your computer. Select the option for safe mode. Once you are in then you need to go to the device manager. Click on the run option on your start button then type compmgmt.msc. Click on device manager on the left side. Then click on display adapters, select your graphics card by double clicking on it. Select the driver tab and uninstall the device. Once you do this reboot with the new monitor plugged in. The operating system should install plug and play hardware automatically. Then you can install the software afterwards once you logon on. Special note: you might have to do this with the old monitor first. Once you uninstall the display driver turn your machine off and connect the new monitor. I hope this helps.

XP Service pack 3 will not boot with NVidia Geoforce 6600 drivers


There's a chance that your screen resolution is set higher than your monitor can handle. Try booting into safe mode and see if you can resolve the problem. You may also have to configure the BIOS to use the expansion slot that your using for the primary video, and turn the integrated (on-board) one off. (If you haven't already done so)

ATI Radeon X1300 wont work with my Vista 32 bit


Try this.

Download the unified Radeon drivers from ATI's website... do not use Windows update. Get the Drivers Only package. for Vista 32-bit

If you can get to the desktop:
Uninstall the existing display drivers by using the remove hardware utility. Whatever they are... remove them. Reboot. Windows will try to reinstall the drivers on the next boot. If it allows you cancel the installation at any time during install do it. Run the downloaded package from ATI. Reboot.

If you can't get to the desktop:
Press F8 when booting and enter safe mode with networking. Download the ATI drivers from ati.com for Vista 32-bit.
Uninstall the display drivers. Reboot. Should take you to the desktop on the next boot so you can run the install program.

No driver appearing in Vista


Sorry this is late but:

Unplug the monitor from the PC and then boot.
after you hear the windows starting sound wait for it to load everything up (say 1 min) and plug in the monitor

Windows then plays the "i have found an unknown device" sound and begins to search for drivers

Wait 5 min for it to do this and then shut down the computer with the power button.
Re boot

Monitor should work.

Note: you must be connected to the net for this to work.

Installing AGP video card


Don't boot with the monitor connected to the card. You need to let it boot into windows and install the drivers for it first. Once you do that,shutdown and restart with the monitor plugged into it and it should work.

MONITOR GOES BLANK


Did you recently change or install a program that would affect the resolution and card output? Try booting into safe mode by holding the "shift" key during boot. From there right-click on the desktop and hit 'properties'-> 'display properties' -> 'settings' , check your resolution and drop it to 800x600 and then reboot. If everything goes back in normally make sure you have the right windows drivers for your video card. You can also check the driver version and settings while you're in safe mode. Sometimes the windows update drivers can act screwy and I would recommend getting them directly from your card manufacturer.
