20 Most Recent ATI RADEON X1650 Graphic Card - Page 5 Questions & Answers


Hello again, i have managed to get the drivers for

One of two things I 'see'.

1.Not to insult you, but do you have the monitor plugged into the graphics card? Hey! I've had people do it! They plugged the monitor back into the motherboard VGA port. (If you don't have a DVI connector on your monitor cable, there is an adapter you can buy. VGA to DVI. Make sure you get the Female VGA to Male DVI version)

2.You have a driver conflict. Even after you removed the old drivers, there are still drivers giving you a hassle. The drivers CD for your ATI needs to be installed first. Load the software, shut the computer down, unplug it from the surge protector, THEN install the ATI graphics card.

If you install a graphics card first, before installing the software for it, Windows will recognize that a new device has been installed, and try to match up it's generic drivers.
Then Windows goes 'crazy' trying to decide which drivers it should use.

Hi i have just bought a new radeon x1650 pro 512mb

When the card is properly installed and the system properly configured, you should at least be getting the POST screen, since that is not driver dependent. And Windows knows to go to the default standard VGA driver when it can't find specific drivers for a card. So we're looking at a hardware issue, not software.

Here are the troubleshooting steps I would take. Some would seem obvious and you've probably already tried them, but I like to be complete:

Is the monitor switchable betwwen two inputs? Do you have it set to the correct input (i.e. VGA vs DVI)? hit the selection button on the front panel, just in case.

Is the card properly seated? Take it out and put it back in. Also, oddly enough, reseating RAM can fix a lot of problems, even seemingly unrelated ones.

Is there an on-board VGA connector? If so, switch over to that and see if you get picture. Then go into CMOS settings and look for a video setting that would make the add-in card the default display. Or simply disable the on-board VGA.

Check the pins on your monitor connection, make sure none are bent.

If none of these get you a picture, I would suggest a defective graphics card.

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.

You could try this link, but with all Beta software nothing is guaranteed until the approved verisons are released.

Not put down your video card though x1650 is not a "screamer" in todays standards, I'm running a 3870OC myself because it was cheaper than to buy the latest and greatest. I believe you are limited by your motherboard only having AGP? Take a look at this link:



You would be able to retain the already installed drivers. It all depends on your budget. On another note try lowering your colors and changing the monitors frequency. I hope this helps.

I have just got a new ATI Radeon X1650 Pro 512MB

The power supply should be efficient enough. You have all the drivers downloaded, so I would suggest upgrading your memory. If you only have 1 gig of ram, half of it is going straight to video card.
I also suggest downloading "glary utilities" program which is free. It will boost and clean registry, remove trojans, spyware, duplicate files, adware, manage start up programs, and so much more.

Also when running games, it is a good idea to shut off any other running programs. Every one that will allow you to.
Just not enough memory in the system.
I would recommend 2.5 or more.

You need to install the drivers. Go to: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx Fill in the fields, download the full package of drivers, and install them. Now your games should work. I hope this helps, Yannick.

Agp accelerator

If you have not already done so, download the Catalyst Control Center from ATI's website. This will include drivers and ATI's management interface, this should also give you 3D acceleration capability. If you are using a 32-bit Operating System like Vista, the driver is here" https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206/0/www2.ati.com/drivers/9-3_vista32_win7_32_dd_ccc_wdm_enu.exe *Note from ATI: must use the ATI Catalyst 9.3 or earlier driver. This device is now considered a legacy device from ATI, so only use up to v9.3! Hope this helps.

Video Card Problem

hi. The amd semprom has similar to an intel celeron. These cpu's are not gaming cpu's. The graphics card you are using is now quite old- very few agp graphics cards are made now. I would say that the cpu and gpu may be the problem but it depends what game you are playing. New video cards use pci express slot and new cpu's are dual core and quad core. If you are serious abot games then you could do with a new motherboard- maybe one supporting an intel core 2 duo cpu, to that add at least a Nvidia 9600gt 512mb gddr3 video card and have 3-3 gb's of ram.

Fan not always spinning

Sounds like a fault with the card, but you should start by cleaning the fan first. If the problem continues and your card is under warranty then send it away to get fixed. If not under warranty, then I would look at replacing the card altogether. The amount of time you will spend going back and forth trying to find the cause may not be worth it.
