Question about Graphics Cards

1 Answer

During boot and in Windows video displays columns of small squares.

After recently installing this Visiontek 2600XT 512MB PCI-e; I turned on the computer and during boot up had about four or five columns of small squares runing vertically on the screen. This of course garbled the text. These cloumns of squares also appeared in windows. I have a Asrock 939dual motherboard, AMD Athlon 64 3200+ CPU, 1 gig ddr ram, a 400W power supply (there are no power connections on the video card), Windows XP 32-bit Home edition. All the latest drivers and bios are loaded. PCI-e setting is selected in the bios for primary graphics adapter.

Yes, it is compatible, just that you must first uninstall the previous video driver, then configure the BIOS to route the video signal to the PCI and not the AGP and only then install the new card. And in the end it will behave worse than the previous AGP card you got because the PCI interface is way slower than the AGP.
Just buy a good AGP card, PCI cards are made for office pc's in which the onboard one is totally obsolete.

For windows to work, it needs the card's drivers to display properly. The bios will display, and the beginning of windows load messages will show, but then it switches to the installed display driver. Take the card out, and use the old display method, and load the drivers for the new card. Then set the screen resolution to 800x600 and the shutdown, and install the new card. The bootup should go correctly, and once the new drivers are in, then set the resolution desired.

First make sure that you have the P4 connector (the square one at the top of the board connected to your P4 power from the power supply.
From here I would disconnect the data cables from the hdd, optical drives, and remove all video/peripheral cards. You should have only the RAM, CPU, and power connected, then try to boot again.
If this works, then add 1 device at a time until it fails to start. This will isolate the component that is giving you problems.
With a single stick of RAM, try to get the computer to POST. (if possible, test the ram in another machine first to ensure that RAM is good)

Is visiontek a radeon hd 2400 pro agp 8 compatible w/ p4s800- mx?


ATI has recently written some better drivers for the 2400 Pro AGP cards,... Make sure the setting in the BIOS for the motherboard is set to the AGP or PCI for primary video. For AGP, make sure that you have the power from the power supply connected to the video card. Make sure that your motherboard does support 8X AGP video cards. If you are not sure, please check with motherboard manufacturer for compatibility.
