Question about ATI RADEON X1650 Graphic Card

1 Answer

ATI RADEON X1650 -- Video degrades during vewing - becomes blotchy and red

When watching .wmv video, the picture quality starts off good, then slowly degrades until skin colour turns all red and blotchy and pixelated. The picture then "snaps back" to normal before starting to degrade again. This can occur numerous times during video playback. The video in questions is mostly low res stuff downloaded from the internet, but I didn't have this issue before I got the new card and monitor.

I did not have this problem with my old 19" monitor and video card, but upgraded recently to a 24" Samsung Synmaster wide screen monitor and the ATI card.

The card and monitor are both set to 1920 x 1200.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Dave

    How would I go about finding out how large my power supply is?

Welcome to fixya

the video card might not be getting enough power you should have a 500w power supply or higher with that video card if you have this already might want to see if you can download any new drivers for the video card

i hope this helps out have a good day

I installed a Radeon X1650 card and having problems


Try the old card & see what happens. If it still does it the monitor is bad. If not make sure to remove the old driver first & then install the new card. Then install the new driver. Should work,if not,then the card may be defective. ATI is kinda common to have a bad one right out of the box.

I installed the ATI x1650 but the monitor is blank when I turn on


Yes the card does support the screen. If you have blank screen right from turn on, chack that you have not plugged the monitor into the onboard graphics port instead of your Radeon. If you have plugged it into the right port then you have hardware problems. Could be any of the following:
1. Monitior
2. Video Card
3. System memory
4. Motherboard
5. Powersupply
6. CPU

Try a different monitor and get back to me if you want troubleshooting tips.
Cheers

Installing radeon x1650 video card I get spots on the screen


If you are experiencing "spots" on the screen, then there are two possibilities.  First, you may have improper drivers installed for your video card.  Please check the ATI website for the latest drivers for your video card.  If this does not correct the problem then it is quite possible that your adapter or the connection on the video card is physically damaged.  Try another adapter.  If this does not solve the problem I would recommend a new video card or having your current X series looked at by ATI.

The graphics card might not be working in sync with your processor. Get it checked WHY this is happening. Probably a faulty connection somewhere. See if you can find one before getting it checked.
