Question about Apple ATI RADEON 9600 XT for Macintosh G5 (p/n 1002843) Graphic Card

1 Answer

I have an old Mitsubishi Diamond Plus 91 monitor and a Sony Artisan monitor on my ATI Radeon 9600 XT card and I am experiencing image break up on both monitors. It does occasionally clear but seems to be getting worse. I took it to an Apple tech who hooked it up to a Mac monitor. The image didn't break up in that instance, but it continued after I reconnected my two monitors. Any ideas? Thanks, Rob Vinnedge

The only thing that can remotely do that is the RAMDAC overheating. Are you using both monitors on high resolutions?
 Replace the passive cooler with an active one - or at least put an external cooler next to it.

    Thank you for the reply. I am using the Sony Artisan monitor at 1280 X 1024 100HZ for Photoshop. I use the other at 1024 X 768 100HZ. The processor is a Mac G5 Dual Processor with two cooling units, one at a consistent but low pace, another that kicks in at higher temperatures. It is not in a particularly warm environment.

    I will say that this problem first began after I started using the Artisan for an occasional movie, heaven forbid. Could that have resulted in my current problem? If so, any further thoughts? Would replacing the card with an identical new one be a solution?

    Thanks!

    The resolutions are normal (quite low actually - i'm using the exact same ones with another Sony and a tv) so they can't be the cause.
    Yes, the movie could have caused it, in latest macs the movie file is decoded in hardware at the video chip level. ATI 9600 XT on macs are known for low capacity coolers, maybe it has overheated then .



    Simple test: remove the Mitsu and see what's hapenning - if the breaks dissapear you will know for sure that your card is to blame - it can't no longer run 2 monitors with the stock cooler. Attach a fan to it, it will help.
    Changing the card will probably help, but i'm afraid that the problem will reappear.

Ati radeon 9600 video card


what you have the ATI card hooked up can you see the boot screen? If you can see that you might want to try going into safe mode and making sure your graphics settings aren't set beyond the capability of your monitor. If you can't see the boot screen then your card might be dead.
