Question about Pine Technology XFX GEFORCE 7950 GT 512MB AGP 1.2GHZ DDR3 DUAL DVI (Retail) (*Regular $259 - $20 Mwave Instant Disco... Graphic Card
I just recently got a xfx 7950gt agp from a friend who came to visit us from the US. now my current/previous videocard is the inno3d 6800gt agp 256mb, i replaced the 6800gt with the 7950gt, plugged in the molex power turned it on, nothing on my monitor. the computer was booting up but there was no images been shown on my monitor. so i took it out, see if i would work in my old computer. turned it on , i could see all those bios stuff, but it had blocks all over the place in different colours. does the mean i have a defective 7950gt and should have it returned back somehow for another videocard? or is there a way of fixing this problem? thank you in advance.
I sell & servicing hardware in my country for 17 years now. I also bought XFX 7900GS AGP for myself 5 months ago and after one month I experienced same problem. XFX Supplier just replace my card. I think that XFX have some problems with this series of cards.
New one works fine 3 months now. You had to replace Your card believe me... I find this becouse I'm interesting to buy 7950GT. :)

Your grafics card could be bending from the soldering which would have been caused by a faulty moiniter or the grafics card is for a diffrent type of computer and conflicts with your other hard ware e.g delll with compack

Hi mistyman, thank you for reading my post and replying to it I do have the drivers from the cd that came with the videocard and also downloaded them from the xfx website as well. I've also loaded the drivers for the 7950gt before i installed it into my computer. But it still does not work. Basically its installed extra power from the molex, machine boots up as normal absolutely nothing is showning on the monitor it says no signal detected. If it helps i am using an ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe motherboard, with a Zalman 600w Heatpipe power supply.

Hi, if you have got the drivers for this v/card then load them while you have your present one in place, if you dont have the drivers then go to the manufacturers website and get them . when you have loaded the drivers then check if you need to enable any changes in your bios. Change the card and if it is functional then you should have solved your problem. A card that advanced needs drivers far greater than you would find in XP. Regards mistyman
