Question about ATI RADEON 9800 PRO (256 MB) Graphic Card

2 Answers

Texture malfunction? I'm unsure as to how to explain the problem I'm having. A few days ago, when my friends were playng a game (Heroes of Might and Magic V), the screen began to produce odd colors. The way I've been explaining it is saying that the textures weren't meshing properly. At first, after the game was quit out of and the computer restarted, there were vertical lines going through the screen in a pattern, varying from black to rainbow colors. I unloaded the game, performed a system restore, cleaned my computer by dusting the inside of it carefully, and deleted and reinstalled the driver off of the Dell website. Nothing actually fixed the problems for very long.

You said these didn't fix the problems for "very long," so it sounds like something might be overheating. It could be the card, or possibly your monitor. I would download a program to run diagnostics on the card to specifically check the temperature of the card itself. Perhaps the fan/heatsink needs to be refitted or a better cooling solution for the card.

Your laptop is under power to run these games. The only solution to this is, either upgrading few of the component, Since this is a laptop, I doubt you can upgrade the video card, and you may need to find a higher performace laptop or a desktop to run the games. Remember game min. recommemation is only for a desktop, and with laptop even with some of the same spec, laptop hardware underperform with desktop hardware always!

Do you have a good signal strength with the wireless USB adapter?
If not try moving the wireless router away from walls or metal objects and cordless phones, locate the wireless router higher.
See if there is a later driver for the wireless USB adapter, if so download and install it.

Well, if you bought it new from a retailer, you should probably take it back and explain to them whats wrong. otherwise, if you obtained it by some other means, you'll have to have it fixed by a games or electronics store. For a temporary fix though you could try something I found that worked for me on youtube. Good Luck friend.

Graphic card Gforce 7300

in safe mode your "graphics accelerator" doesnt kick in, it runs a slow standard VGA commands. If your card was damaged by usualy overheating or just itself (bad luck, happened to me on 6600gt) it will die either quick or slowly. Slowly means, first "Direct 3D" will show rubbish on screen, the "OpenGL" and later even in windows it displays lines and freezes. After that, you cant even go to BIOS cause if freezes 5 secs after boot. Mine died that way. TRY another card, cheapest u can get or borrow but the same port AGP or PCX, whiever u have. If all is ok, the card is gone. (sounds like it 90%)
