Supply voltage issue...

Iv read on other sites that the x1650 pro requires a certain voltage level for the power supply. The load on my power supply is not to exceed 250 v. I know this is much above what the video card even asked for as a required. Is this an issue is it gonna come back to haunt me?

The x1650 card requires extra amperage, not extra voltage. It runs on the same 12 volts as the rest of the computer. The issue is that if you have an underpowered power supply, of if you have a lot of other devices hooked up, you may need a better power supply to provide enough wattage to the card. As long as you have at least a 400w power supply, I would expect you to be alright.

The problem can be a few things. You could have a faulty motherboard, graphics card or monitor. if your computer has an on board video, I'd remove the ATi card, and try booting with that. if you have a friend that is willing to help, use their computer to swap the video cards and monitor. your looking to see if each component is working on it's own.
I also suggest writing down every step you take, may seem like it's not needed, but it'll help you if you need to post more info.

Note: Having fans turn on is not an indication that a card is working, just that power is being applied. It can cause a lot of confusion by overlooking some thing.

So I'm trying to install a ATI Radeon X1650 Pro AGP card, I've seen where other people have tried and got the same results as me, but my question is, I've got 2 gigs of ram on a ADM Athalon 2400 Is this...

Firstly you must make sure your motherboard actually has an AGP slot. The newer ones have PCI-Express instead and you can't plug it in and there are no converters.

Yes, the card will work with that CPU and RAM. Everything depends on the motherboard, but if it's AGP and can do AGP x8 then all's well.
Make sure if the card requires extra power that your power supply can power it (for example if the power supply has the correct connector for the graphics card, and if it has the necesarry power to power it). Since it's not a high end card it probably doesn't even have the power connector in which case it's low power and it should work on pretty much any power supply over 350W.

You ask if that's enough; enough for what? A particular game or software? It'll run ok on older games, but newer ones like Call of Duty 4 should work but on very low settings. I'm not sure if your cpu can take that game tough, but the graphcis card can and the ram is enough.

Radeon x1650 512mb AGP video card causes a green flash when

lets do some basic brainstorming together.

anytime you add additional componets to your motherboard, heating is a big issue and may cause over heating of the mb, hd, ram, video.

you will need additional power or wattage out put to support additional cards, fans,

additonal with the heat needs more air flow in the system, if you do not put more cooling devices in the computer to help it stay cool you may end up buying additional parts like mb, ram, hd, because the 1 fan in the power supply doesnt have enought power to cool the system down and than they get hot and they stop functioning right, freeze ups,
shut downs, power outages and so on.

there is a web site you should look at just as a peace of mind

they have lots of information on cooling systems and documents to help you with this issues

i hope i helped you

Video card power supply


Depending on what version of the x1650 you have, there is a 4 pin power connector either at the top right corner, or next to where the fan is plugged in. If your power supply doesn't provide the connector you will have to buy a 4 pin molex to 4 pin mini adapter.

ATI x1650 Pro Stops!?

For this card they recomment at leat a power supply rating of 450 watts. If you have lower than this then I would suggest upgrading the power supply. A 550 watt psu is reasonably priced and should give you plenty of power for future use. Hope this helps.

X1650 xt agp installation problem

check and see if your pc has the recommended power requirements, a lot of the generic power supply's can't support anywhere near the posted wattage. A good power supply is very heavy with big heat sinks. Also check and make sure that the graphics card does not require any extra power connectors. A lot of the newer card require you to either plug in a pci-e power connector, molex plug, or floppy drive power cable.
