    Sirs,



    All hardware requirements were met, except that I am using an Asus Motherboard with NVIDIA chipset, hehehe.



    Here's the specs:

    Intel Core2 Quad Processor Q6700

    Asus P5N32-E SLI Plus Motherboard

    2 x 2GB DDR2 667 RAM

    2 x 500GB Seagate HDD

    Sapphire ATI RADEON 3850 PCIE 512mb

    Arctic ATX Casing w/ 500W PSU



    Might be the motherboard??? I just wanted to try out since our supplier told me that the motherboard could work with ATI Crossfire vdu cards.



    Thanks for your reply!



    More power!

I have a similar problem. Ati Radeon 3850 /512MB on an asus M2N-E motherboard with Nvidia chipset. My computer reboots itself from time to time. Changed memories, cpu, power supply just in case one of theese component might be faulty but no use, same results. Could there really be a conflict between Nvidia and Ati working togehter on the same PC? Tried even to browse the web for ideas and solid ideas concerning this issue but i came to the conclusion that Nvidia chipset doesn't like Ati vcards. Compatibility issues which i don't consider to be normal at all. Any other ideas?
Cheers.

JoBal,

The main problem is meeting system requirements for this high-end card. Please see the requirements list below and let me know if you are up to par.

Requirements (taken directly from their website)

  • PCI Express based PC is required with one X16 lane graphic slot available on the motherboard.
  • 1GB or greater system memory for better performance.
  • 450Watt or greater power supply with 75 Watt 6-pin PCI Express power connector recommended.
  • For ATI CrossfireX: 550 watt power supply or greater with two 6-pin connectors.
  • Certified power supplies are recommended. Refer to http://ati.amd.com/certifiedPSU for a list of Certified products
  • Installation software requires CD-ROM drive.
  • DVD playback requires DVD driver
  • Blu-ray/HD DVD playback requires Blu-ray/HD-DVD drive and playback software.
  • For a complete ATI CrossFireX™ system, a second ATI Radeon™ HD 3850 graphics card, an ATI CrossFireX Ready motherboard and one ATI CrossFireX Bridge Interconnect cable per board are required.
Take care!

    Asus Motherboard with an Nvidia Nforce?
    If that's the case, you really want to go with an Nvidia card instead of ATI. Compatibility literally "across the board" (if you get the pun).

    Take care!

    Has my solution helped? I highly recommend pairing Nvidia with Nvidia.

Hmm..

did you uninstall driver of the previous graphics card you had on there ?

if not that may be it

also card may be overheating make sure it has enough ventilation.
Also check and make sure that any wires aren't touching or preventing the fan from spinning

or you may need more ram or change/update bios & settings

So which video card do i need? i have 845gl motherboard . before installing this video card (rage XL 8mb pci) my pc plays videos and most 3d game very (even gta sanandreas) efficiently but now it is not...


Hi,

The ATI Rage XL 8MB PCI video card is a very old and low power video card.

PCI graphics cards are not as fast as AGP graphics cards so if your motherboard has an AGP slot (it's the slot closest to the CPU and is usually coloured brown) then that would give you better performance.

These days AGP has been superceded by PCI-Express but since your motherboard does not have a PCI-Express slot then the best graphics card for it would be something like this one:

http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/5416296/Sapphire-ATI-Radeon-HD-3850-512MB-DDR3-AGP-8X-Graphics-Card/Product.html

Hope this helps, please rate my answer :)

these cards do require that additional power be given to them from the power supply. Have you connected the card to your PC power supply via the 3 pin connector and power connector.

Also uninstall the driver via safe mode and let it redetect in normal mode then install the latest drivers for your card. Download from ati.com

No, the units will conflict with eachother. If you are using the add on card, you must disable the onboard card.

Graphics Card Compatability


Yes, it should work ok.. Your motherboard supports 1 x AGP8X, and since this card is 8x AGP, and includes a power adapter cable, it should be fine. Just make sure you have an adequate power supply (400watt+)...
