Question about ATI RADEON X1300 Pro 256MB PCIE Graphic Card

1 Answer

Blank screen after powering up I get a screen with choices of safe mode, use last known good configuration, start normally etc. after a going through each choice nothing good worked, and all I get is a screen like the matix movie with vertical lines scrolling down. Then nothing, just a black blank screen. Before all this happened I was getting an error screen saying display mode not supported. Sorry, for the poor english. But can you suggest anything before I decide it is the video card.

Check the fan on your video card if it has one. If it does have one and it's not working correctly then it will overheat very quickly.
This sort of issue can be caused by a million things but your description points to the card overheating or the memory on the video card dying.

hi
  1. Turn your computer on.
  2. Start pressing F8 on your keyboard about every second as soon as you turn the computer on until you see the screen shown below.03b7e06.png

1:Select "last known good configuration " using the arrow keys.
your laptop will be restored to the time it was working properly

still your problem is not solved then
2:instead of selecting " last known good configuration " now you select safe mode from here you safely turn Off the laptop.

3:if the above solution did not solve your problem do System restore

I am going to recommend a hardware approach first and then a software approach, to this issue, in order to assist you. At the end of these procedures, is a general support link from Apple for additional support for no picture in your iMac G5 display

I am seeing more of such display issues like this, and more often than not, if the problem does not have to do with the firmware, it may be a damaged or corrupted file which can hinder the iMac G5 from normal start up functionality.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PMU Reset (try this first)

The PMU (Power Management Unit) is a micro controller chip on the logic board that controls all power functions for your Mac.

• Shut down the computer.
• Unplug the computer's power cord.
• Press and hold the power button for 20 seconds.
• Release the power button.
• Attach the computers power cable.
• Press the power button to turn on the computer.
* Boot to your desktop.

This procedure may help but if it does not, follow the procedure below

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-SAFE BOOT MODE-
• Reboot your Mac
• Upon restarting your Mac, press the Shift key.
• Hold the Shift key until you see a White Screen with Gray Apple icon and eventually a spinning gear.
• When you see the Spinning gear, release the Shift key.
• Allow the Mac to continue booting up. Also this may take a little while

(NOTE: this may take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to load to the Safe mode screen depending on the performance of your Mac, but if it exceeds this time, shutdown your Mac and try just once more. It may have just frozen up the first time around for you.)

• You are going to enter the Safe Mode (which looks like your main desktop environment - the only difference is certain startup items are disabled.)

• Once within the Desktop in Safe Mode
• From the Finder Menu, click Go> Go to Folder
• Type in this line: /System/Library/StartupItems
• This path, is going to take you to the System Library folder which has all of your Mac OS X Startupitems.
• Remove all of those folders to the Trash.

*Reboot your Mac normally and see if you can access your normal User desktop environment.

One of these two procedures should help resolve the blank display issue you are experiencing,

Screen black on reboot


start the computer and when the computers splash screen shows (dell) etc. tap the F8 key repeatedly until you see the multiple startup choices. Scroll to "safe Mode with Networking" and select it, you will see the operating system listed as the target operating system, click that (hit enter) start in safe mode. When it boots do you see the screen with no problem? if so then the resolution may be wrong on the normal start up. On the dektop in a clear area free of icons, right click and scroll down to properties, click on settings, then move the resolution slider to either 800 X600 or 1028 X 768. click on yes to change the settings, restart the computer by hitting start > Turn off computer > restart. Reboot it normal mode (just let it boot as you would normally) If you can see the screen, you are all set, if not there is another issue to deal with.

I updated driver for Matrox450 and screen is now black


Instead of safe mode or LKG, try VGA mode. Then roll back the driver.

FYI - It helps if you post your OS.

Hi,
why don't you go with the lower resolution itself as it was before.  if you are not able to set the screen resoultion to lower what you can do is reset ur system. press F8 key continuesly untill you get advanced boot system. There you select "safe mode" and run the system. Once it is booted try changing the resolution.             OR After getting the Advanced boot system you can also try by selecting "Last Known good Config......" so that it sets the old screen resolution...!

when the pc is powering up, keep pressing F8 to get into safe mode, and when in the menu select last known good configuration and press enter for a reboot. This should get you running, if not restart again pressing F8, but this time select start windows in safe mode and whilst in safe mode select the administrator account and try doing a system restore to a date before you tried loading the programe, and let the pc re boot, and hopefully you are now ok.

I uninstalled drivers now pc shows a blank screen on reboot


Turn your PC's power to off and disconnect its power cable. Open the PC and move the graphic card to a new PCI slot connector. Connect the power cable and turn your PC to on. Reinstall card's drivers (from the CD you get with the card). Let us know with your resultes. Good luck.
