I did that. After restarting, ATI Poped-up a message saying "Wrong video card version" Or something along those lines.

Problem Appears to be solved. One of the fans inside the computer is broken. Im guessing the video card is overheating because of this problem.

A temporary fix, we used a Home-Portable fan and haven't had any problems lately.

Ill post if problem proceeds.

I think the main source of the problem has been found.

Radeon 9800 Pro has a fan attached to the card on the bottom side. But that fan doesn't seem to be spinning, and if i touch it its freaking hot.

Im guessing that's why it overheats so much.

Any way to fix it without getting a new card?

Unless the wiring to the fan is incorrect, no

You could remove the card and get it checked, though that could cost as much as replacing the fan yourself

Hm, maybe I should have it professionally looked at.

Its not that I don't trust you, but maybe they could find a simple solution.

They will spot it, though it is likely to be the fan, which I did say to have checked

My mother says she can have it replaced (Although she doesn't possess a reciept, and I now have a 10day somewhat waiting period)
Ill inform you afterwards.

Hope it goes well

Temporarily, I put in an old ATI-Rage 128 Pro video card.

But the Graphics Driver I tried to install with it, it pop-ups this thing about "unable to run dos 16-bit" or something like that.

Is there a way around this?
