Question about ATI RADEON X1650 Graphic Card
I have recently installed a ATI Radeon X1650 Pro IceQ 512MB DDR2 AGP8X replacing a Winfast 3D AGP graphics card. System requirements for the Radeon are:
At least a 450W PSU
Intel 4, AMD Athlon or compatible with AGP 8x, 4X or universal AGP 3.0 bus
Windows XP, Windows XP x64 edition.
My System is:
600W PSU (upgraded to suit)
AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3200+
GA-K8N nForce 3 Mobo
and the latest drivers I can find for Radeon.
The problem is the screen is going blank for a second or two then coming back. Video starts the freezes but sound continues.
I used to be able to play Age of Empires III on old system although graphis a little slow. Now only get a flash of graphics through the start up screens while sound continues fine and then no graphics for the main screen.
Have played with refresh rates cureently set at 60Hz but have tried all.
Upgraded the PSU thinknig that could be the problem but no change. Uninstalled all previous drivers for winfast prior to installing Radeon. Have tried several uninstalls and reseat of card still with same problem.
Any fixes or suggestions would be appriciated thanks.
If you have on board graphics try removing video card and reboot when computer rebooted turn it of and refit card and restart when restarted computer should recognize new hard ware and should find the already installed drivers if not try installing drivers again
Sometimes windows does not recognize new hardware until its refitted
had this problem with modems alot and the above method solved it
