OK my problem is with my new Graphics Card its an ATI Radeon 9600 .. well its not new but its 2nd hand and works on my sisters computer, its my 'upgrade'
Ive done heaps of research on the problem but am now going to ask for help becuase i cant find any meaningful info!
The problem is that when i put the card in, and yep ive setup the bios, when i get into windows, if i get to the desktop and dont open any applications its fine, its only when i do some, like open up My Computer, that it decides it needs to freeze and then turn the monitor off, and it will come back from death after like 3secs of nothingness if im lucky, but that will only happen once, the when i try to do anything else, it reboots me
Im not sure what else i can say, i can anwser any question and try any solution because im desperate that i junked my old card
Heres some info, but im not sure if it will help
Windows Xp Pro
Service Pack 2
im not sure on how to find out what kind of MotherBoard i have, all i know is that its a VIA
I have 512mb of RAM and a 2.4ghz Processor
It says R96 and 256mb on the card itself
In the BIOS it says this:
AGP MODE - AUTO
AGP APERTURE SIZE - 256MB
AGP FASTWRITE - DISABLED
PCI DELAY TRANSACTION - DISABLED
DRAM CAS# LATENCY - AUTO
DRAM VOLTAGE - NORMAL
AGP VOLTAGE - HIGH
thats about all i know of srry if it dosent help too much, is there anyway from looking at these pictures that it says the card is incompatible or having power problems or ANYTHING that would give me some info?
THX SO MUCH GUYS!!
