Question about Sapphire ATI RADEON X1600Pro 512MB DVI/VGA/TV-Out Graphic Card

1 Answer

Motherboard doesn't recognize new video card.

Bought x1600 pro agp video card thru Ebay. When I first installed it, all my monitor did was go to sleep when turned on. No video. Then I noticed my power supply was way underpowered for the card and bought a new 550w PS. Still get no video or bios on boot. It turns on as the fans are spinning and HDD lights are blinking, my board (chaintech SKT600) just doesn't see it. I've put back in the old Nvidia FX5200 and made sure I removed any old nvidia drivers, changed AGP aperture size, changed speed from 8x to 4x, still nothing. Did I get ripped off thru Ebay. The fan spins up on the video card but that doesn't mean jack. Any ideas are appreciated.

New Geforce 6200 on AGP 8x slot has no output


if you can't get a display from the onboard vga the PSU must have killed the mother board. the 6200 gets all of its power from the AGP slot. so if the PSU killed the 6200 it must have gone thru the motherboard. it does not seem likely it took out the 6200 but nothing happened to the board. try taking out the RAM modules. if the computer does not beep then most likely the motherboard is dead.

Comp will not recognize my agp radeon HD2400 pro graphics card


Try the following : Go into the setup routine using the onboard video. Go to the  Intergrated Peripherals.
Find the onboard video and change it to disable. Save changes.
Change monitor to the AGP card.
  I hope this helps.


Here is a web site for your Award Bios setup:

If you are sure your computer is running smoothly with the video card, check if the pins of the vga cable from your monitor is in good shape.

Hi Vigilante - Please don't rate this 'til it's fixed. Have you disabled the onboard video in the BIOS?
