Question about ATI RADEON X1650 Graphic Card
Hi guys, Trying to use the above graphics card in a Gigabyte GA-686bx board running a pentium II processor. The card fits no worries, but with the card plugged in, the computer won't even do self tests. It powers up, no self tests, no hard drives clunking. Tried it in all 4 slots - same result. I've just taken out an S3 card which works fine, however I really need to change it over so I can use DVI instead of VGA. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Pete
Ati is not compatable with the new intell boards get a NVidia card for intell boards.

You need two pci-e slots. Put the cards in the slots. The cards connect with a crossfire bridge. Then just plug your monitor in and your ready to go. Make sure that you have the software installed and that your chipset supports crossfire. For more info click here.

ok.. the first thing is.. u need to either physically look at the chips / or chipset on the card.. then locate the gpu.. when this is complete enter the gpu name into google.com or .ca and add driver to the end of the search query then you should--- or this link should do nicely for windows xp http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html

Remove the card, plug into your built-in card. Start your PC in safe mode. Uninstall all ATI software and delete the card from Device Manager. Restart. Reinstall the ATI drivers. Power down. Install the card and connect your monitor to it. The OS will find the card in default mode - let it. Restart. When it comes back up, you will be able to select the full range of operating modes.
BACK UP :)
