Question about ATI RADEON X800 GTO, (256 MB) PCI Express Graphic Card

1 Answer


I bought this card about 2 year's ago and it ran great. I've used it for at least 1 year and then one day my computer locked up. So I did a hard reset and when my comp started to boot up I got a message saying incompatible hardware issue. When I first got my card this message never came up and thing's worked like a charm on install. I tried re installing the card and using old and new driver's and even allowing my comp to detect the appropriate driver's and I keep getting the incompatible hardware message. Now having the card in my comp will cause it to lock up upon boot. Could it be my card is kaput? So now I'm stuck using my old card. Any idea's?

I'm trying to replace my old ATI/AGP graphics card and install a used ATI/AMD Radeon x800 xL AGP-256mb graphics card into my computer. After installation, the system would not boot up; heard this...

Since that is an older card I will assume that it is previously owned.
Try reinstalling the card and leaving your computer open so you can look in and see the fan on the video card, Use some liquid paper to make a mark on the fan so you can see it, you may need to lay the case on its side. Now plug your computer back in and see if the fan is spinning properly, Also make sure no wires are interfering with it.

Need new card, system requirements confusing

Radeon X800 XL is a PCI-E (PCI-Express) card, you can replace it with any current ATI or nVidia video card that uses the PCI-E slot. Since you already have a PCI-E card before, I would bet you already meet most of the system requirements.

How to make use of 2 DVI outputs on Sapphire Radeon X800 GTO2 Graphics card

You need ATIs Catalyst Software to run dual monitors. Just installing the drivers is not enough. There is a bummer part of all this. Before you install the latest driver/Catalyst Crontrol Center, you will have to uninstall your current X800 software through Control Panel. If it fail to uninstall you will need to use ATIs uninstall software called: cat-uninstaller.exe. The first link below.
When you have the new CCC & driver installed you'll need to setup your dual monitors within the Catalyst Control Center. K
Radeon X800 Driver/CCC software:
1 last item. Please make sure your operating system is updated. ATI wants you to have .Net framework 2.0 installed before you install the driver package.

ATI X800 XT Mac Edition and Mac G5 boot troubleshooting

I have the same card and many of the same issues.  I got an RMA number and had to contact ATI after "Clear Business Days" to get a status report.  Having finally gotten a response, I find out that it will be 10 to 12 WEEKS before the card comes back.
Knowing what I know now, I would not purchase this card again.
