Question about ATI RADEON X1650 Graphic Card

Video Graphics Card

How do I know if the problem I am experiencing is my graphics card?

1) I have a no brand tower computer that is 6 - 7 years old. This afternoon during bootup we were not getting any display on the computer.

2) My monitor says it is working correctly, Check cables & computer.
Cables are OK.

3) I plugged the monitor into my laptop and monitor displays perfectly.

In advance, thanks!

Non display for DELL GX 110PC Desktop

Either your monitor is bad or the video card inside the computer is bad. To isolate the problem try a different monitor on the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker. If the borrowed monitor works, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does not work, then the video card inside your computer is bad.

I need to find a replacement video card for my E-3400 . The cards that are readily available have the long flange for mounting. This one has a mounting flange that is about two inches wide. It also only...

The Gateway E-3400 Desktop computer, uses a Low Profile, ATI Rage 128 Pro graphics card, according to ATI Support.

It is an AGP 4X graphics adapter card.

(AGP - Accelerated Graphics Port)
Made around June 20, 2000.

This is the E-3400 Mid Tower System Manual,

,(From Gateway. It's a PDF file), in case you do not have this manual anymore.

I see what you mean about the mount bracket.
REAL SMALL! The video card is a Low Profile card, but the mount bracket is Unusual!

From searching Gateway Support,

1.Looking through their graphics cards,

2.Looking for an ATI Rage 128 AGP 4X graphics card, that is Low Profile, and has the bracket I believe your computer uses,

(Based on the above E-3400 Mid Tower System Manual, and the photos on this website,

Image 4),

4.I believe this is the graphics card you need from Gateway,

The only way to be - Sure, is to physically look at the Product number on the video card you have now.

If this number does not match up, please come back, and state so.
I'll give you the link to the Gateway Support page, with all of the AGP video card product numbers, so you can match up to the correct one.

Availability? I don't know.
You'll have to contact Gateway yourself. They have Select Retailers.

What I do know.

The link above, where I stated I looked at the back of the Gateway E-3400, to see close detail of the VGA connector, and mount bracket of the video card.

They're selling the entire tower unit for $24, and shipping is $20 in the USA.

Not advertising for this website. We don't do that here. I'm just stating what I found.

What do i do if my computer monitor goes blank and turns on and the cords are all the way plugged it the tower or monitors problem??

Hi There !!

Thank you for writing to

The monitor turn off & tun back on automatically, are the symptoms of Faulty Driver for graphic card, or Faulty Graphic Card & even could be the monitor it self. My suggestion would be to first, Uninstall & reinstall the drivers of the graphic card. If still problem persist you might need to replace the Graphic Card. But 80% of the times, drivers causes these kind of issues.

Steps how to change the Graphic Card:

  1. Static electricity can seriously damage the components inside a computer. To avoid this you must ensure you are grounded when operating inside your computer. One way to do this is to purchase an anti-static wrist strap which you should wear at all times. The wrist-strap plugs into an electrical socket which will automatically discharge the static electricity in your body.
  2. The graphics card or video card translates information into the graphics and text that appear on the monitor screen.
  3. Most motherboards now include a slot specifically designed for the graphics adapter called the AGP slot. This stands for Advanced Graphics Port.
  4. Modern graphics adapters usually incorporate some memory right on the card to improve their performance.
  5. To get into the tower you will have to remove the panel which is on the right hand side when viewing the tower from the back. Open this side of computer case by removing the screws at the back of the tower which are holding it in place. Then simply slide the panel off.
  6. Locate the old card on the motherboard and remove it by firmly lifting it out of the slot it occupies. Insert the new card, ensuring it is firmly pushed into the slot. Note: Some AGP ports have sliding locks that hold graphics cards in place. If your card is reluctant to come out or won't stay in, check if your port has these. If it does, use a screwdriver or your fingers to pull it to the right (open) or left (close). Make sure it clicks before removing or adding the card to minimize the risk of damaging the new card or your motherboard.
  7. Replace the tower's side panel, switch the computer on and install appropriate software that came with the new card.

Hope all these steps will help.

Problem using graphics card

You don't have to order a 'dell' brand power supply, just make sure you replace it with one more powerful with the same connection types... but before you do that, try changing the bios setting from 'auto' and specify the first video device to be the PCI-e, or AGP... depending on the type of card that you're putting in there.

Add in Video Card

Yes 6 beeps indicates that there is no video card. Remove the card and plug into another PCI slot as some like to be the first PCI bus used. You will more than likely have to remove a sound card or some other interface do this plug in your new card into the slot and power on.

If there is still 6 beeps there are two possibilities
1 The Video PCI card id faulty
2 The Card is not compatible with your machine.

I do hope this helps you you also may check that you don't have to disable the card within the bios settings as sometimes even though the hand book tell you it should auto change sometime you will have to do this manually.

Thanks J

Video Card Problems

Sounds like the video card is heating up too quickly and can't get rid of the heat fast enough. Maybe you need to check the fan on the video card or get another fan to circulate the air more within your PC. I currently have 3 fans blowing inward in my PC and 1 blowing outward. 1 mounted on the front, blowing inward 1 mounted on the side, blowing inward 1 mounted on the top, blowing inward 1 mounted on the back, blowing outward I used to have problems with my video card acting up from time to time and this seemed to help keep not only my video card cool, but also my CPU.
