    I have a similiar issue but it's only when i try to run a game that has direct 3d, and it only started after i updated the drivers

Solution is simple, ati themselves know about this issue, thier newer drivers refuse to support agp on most systems correctly in directx's direct3d, for now they have a workaround and it seems its been applied in 8.2, but this caused my own sapphire x1650 pro to get random reboots in games like fear and half life 2, best bet is catalyst 7.7, seems the most stable on this card...

You did the right thing just not in the correct order. Did you update windows? You'll need .Netframwork 2.0, do not skip lower versions of .Net framework & download & install 1 at a time with a restart inbetween even if windows does not say you need to restart. The link below will take you to ATI's latest driver updates. After you download & save to disk. You'll need to uninstall any other version that reside in Add/Remove programs.

    Other than pulling out your video card & re-seating it back in it's slot, did you check the spec's on the games box. You will find what min & max suggested video card to use. Your Radoen AGP may not meet the required conditions.

    So you installed the Radeon video drivers & still got the same error message. Run a check on directX that checks your current directX ver. To start DXDiag, from the Start menu, click Run , and then type: dxdiag, click OK. You will see the version of directX.

    There is another way to install the video drivers. Make sure you have the newer Radeon drivers saved on your drive in a folder. Open the controll panel. Remove anything that says ATI from Add/Remove programs. Update windows through winows update. You will need .Net framework version 2.0. Please do not skip lower versions of .Net framework & download & install only 1 at a time and in order. Restart when windows request it. After every thing is up to date, your ready to install the Radeon Catalyst Software Suite

    Cross your fingers!

The game stopped

Hello matbedui,
If you think the Radeon card is overheating you can check this by simply touching the card after it's been running for sometime. Some Radeon cards (high end) do have this problem. PC cases that do not have sufficient fresh air flow cause problems not just to video cards but to everything inside the case. The design of the HIS Radeon X1650 is less than sufficient. Keeping air flow contained. One way in & one way out. This issue is so important many companies creat sites to help you cool your card.
Your Radeon X1650 Pro IceQ II runs ATI's chips. Installing the latest software is recomended. Download from here:
Pick your OS. Than pick Radeon. Scroll down to your X1600 series. You can also update through HIS. Their software is twice the size of the ATI software.

Good luck!

ATI RADEON X1650 Pro, AGP Graphic Card 512MB compatibility

Maybe this post is a bit old, but on last deceber I bought an AGP 512MB ATI Radeon X1650 PRO for my Foxconn motherboard and I must say that it's simply awesome!
I can play most games on mid-high settings on reasonable resolutions (most on 1024x768) with good FPS (except with Crysis... but let's face it, did Crytek bought a time machine to warp a 2010 game??).
So, if you already have it, then congratulations, and if you still are thinking on buying it, then what are you waiting for!?
Also, it's AGP x8, if your motherboard support x8, then it should run perfectly fine.

Also, I have a bit of problems trying to run Prey on the X1650...
It always appears an error... it's not of much importance, as I have much better games, but I haven't tried it with high fancy graphics... :P
