Question about Abit RX600PRO-GURU RADEON X600 PRO GURU, (256 MB) Graphic Card

1 Answer

Rpm's and graphics

Recently my video card has been degrading in performance. For example, there was a certain computer animated movie that was released a while back. It is extrememly well detailed and can only be run on a pretty good graphics card to run smoothly. It used to on my CPU, but now it's aall choppy. I changed the amount of virtual memory, erased a buttload of stuff off that particular partition and quite a few other things befor I dicided to open the OC Guru. It says that the fan on my Abit RX600PRO-GURU card is at 0 rpms and is giving a warning that says core fan abnormal. It isn't dusty at all and free spins when I do it myself, and I don't feel any air coming out from it when my cpu is running. Any suggestions (seeing as trying to adjust fan speed isn't working). Maybe I missed something.

Hi Naida, A while back I had a computer that was having all kinds of video issues after it had been on for a little bit. I pulled the video card out and like you was able to free spin the fan and didn?t see any dust worth mentioning. Also like you I ran the computer with the case open to verify the fan was actually spinning but noticed there really wasn?t much air being moved. I removed the fan from the card and to my surprise found that the cards heatsink directly underneath the center of the fan was blocked with a solid ball of dust I couldn't see before. Cleaned that out, reassembled and I was good to go. If that doesn?t do it you might consider replacing the card fan. They?re small, cheap and run full board on gaming machines. Since you?ve gotten some messages indicting your software detects 0 rpm it would be a logical and cheap thing to try. Let us know if this works and please don?t forget to rate this post.

Which graphic card is suitable for my compaq presario sg1138il pc?

The type of graphics card you need depends upon the programs you are using.
For example if you only use your computer for simple wprd processing, e-mails etc. then you only need a low end graphics card.
If you have a high performance computer and you play graphics intensive video games that renders realistic images, then you need a high end graphics card and these cards will have large video RAM (memory).
There are a large range of graphics cards on the market, I suggest you Google search for graphics cards that matches your programs and application requirements.
If your model computer has an AGP expansion slot, then make sure the graphics cards are AGP cards.

When i go to play any of my games on my desktop pc my computer freezes and goes to a blue screen at the same point every time even though my computer meets all the specifications required, i think that i...

This one really depends on the game or application your trying to use. Bioware for example most recently had an issue with Mass Effect 2 in which the game did not work well on non-dual processors to spite system specifications. The issue had to do with the movies, not the the rendered scenes. Ironically, new compression standards have made some video more intensive on lower end processors than fully 3D rendered scenes. If the problem was heating or damage to the card, you would crash after a certain amount of use, not at a certain point in the game. If you think it is the card, you can turn everything down to the lowest setting and see if the issue goes away. But I'm betting it won't. I would check the other components...make sure your system RAM is good, look for patches or forum complaints about the game your playing, and close out anything like Skype, Steam, messenger clients, etc. that your not using.

What video card would be compatable with a insignia computer model d300?

I would recommend any of the Nvidia or ATI video cards that come in the PCI format. Your computer only has PCI slots. These are the older slot types, so your options will be limited for brand new cards, but there's still plenty out there. As long as the slot type is PCI and the chipset is a major manufacturer, it should work with no problem. Do NOT get any video card that says "PCI Express" or "PCI-X" - they won't fit.

I hav a nvidia 8400gs graphics card how can i increase its size 1. by sharing it with hard disk 2.by sharing it with ram 3.what are the effects of this procedure?

upgrading your video card. There are probably only two basic reasons to upgrade a video card: 1. Your current card has poor performance.or You just "want" faster video performance.
If you think your current video card is performing poorly, there are a couple of things you should do prior to upgrading your video card. The first thing your should do is give your computer a "tune-up". This involves things like running Defrag, Scandisk, virus checkers etc. (for further explanation of tune-up procedures, .
Once you are certain that your computer is performing properly, and your computer is still experiencing slowdowns in video intensive programs, like games or graphic design programs, then the second thing you may need to do is upgrade your computer's main system memory. Inadequate amounts of system RAM will choke your computer's performance. That's why I recommend all newer computers have at least 512 MB of system RAM.

When i try vidio clips the sound and the vidio ,stops few seconds and starts again and does it again and again .

it may be that your graphic card is not powerful enough to handle 3D and animation programs like watching video clips on the internet, movies on your computer etc.
try upgrading your graphic card to a more powerful ones like ATI and Nvidia graphics, both manufacture good graphics card.
If you want to upgrade, consider the following:

your system slot type: PCI, AGP, or PCI-express. read your PC manual for the correct card type.
Purchase the correct video card type based on your system slot type.
also look for graphic cards with more memory .
