Question about ATI RADEON 9800 PRO Mac Edition (128 MB) Graphic Card

2 Answers

Where can I buy a replacement fan for an ATI 9800 Pro Mac GPU ? The fan on mine has seized up and the card is causing the CPU to fail to boot on restart presumably because the GPU is overheating. I get a flashing GPU card symbol on restart.

Most likely you can not replace just the fan on this card. If it is possible your best source for getting an actual replacement is going to be the ATI website. Search for repair or replacement parts on that site.

I do think that it would be better to replace the card, it is possible that the card is faulty.

How to covert to Mac edition (ATI Radeon 9800 Pro)


Even if you do this, I would not guarantee it will work. Before you destroy it and void the warranty, you could probably return it or sell it on eBay. It's still a decent card for a AGP variety.

When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

[ GPU stands for Graphics Processing Unit. The ATI Radeon X600 series uses an ATI Radeon R300 GPU,

If you are replacing using more than just a Fan, such as using a GPU cooler that also has a Heatsink attached, do not forget to Thoroughly clean the top of the GPU's case, and Properly apply fresh, new Thermal Paste.

Possibly conflicting with something or the card has failed or it could be a driver issue try & update the drivers if this doesn't work check in device manager if there is a yellow exclamation mark then there is a conflict somewhere, if driver update doesn't work & no conflicts are found your card has failed & will need to be replaced.

ATI 9800 Mac Pro 256 SGP


I have experienced this problem on a video card of my own awhile back. It was a nvidia card not ati. I did replace my fan and i was ok after that. It can never hurt. However locating a fan is sometimes hard to do. i was able to get mine from nvidia they were nice and only charged me 12.00 plus 4.95 to ship. A good way to tell is will the mac currently boot? if it will boot then after a little bit it hangs i would think a fan would help. I would at least try a fan first. Oh ya it also depends on how long the fan was out if the fan just died then i would say go for it if the fan has been out awhile i would get a new card just my 2 cents :)

5 beeps and no display


5 beeps is processor(cpu) failure

are they long? short?

Try another processor on the computer and see if it works.
do you get the same beeps if you place the old card back in?

Whats the brand and model of the motherboard?

its reads between the cpu and memory and also between the expansion slots, and possibly on top of a heatsink

let me know


Thanks,
Ekse

Ati radeon 9800 error message on bootup


the error means that you do not have a power cod connected on the card or the power supplied by the PS is not enough for the card to run.

Remove power from the parts in the PC that you are not using anymore and try to reinstall the card.

worst case is getting another power supply about 600 watts

Swap 9800 Pro for 9700 Pro


You must uninstall the current driver and reinstall the driver for the 9800 Pro first:

Power supply recommended is 300watt for each, so that is not a factor. It would have to be a driver conflict.

Replacing a Radeon 9800 Pro AGP graphic card


Axis 3000 is listed as 360w and this should just do as the card requires 350w. As you are going to Ebuyer anyway why not get a new PSU, they have a 450 watt PSU with a large fan for £16. Make sure you are getting the AGP version and not the PCI-E version of the card. I find eBuyer are usually open to replacing items and you could ask their tech support first.
