New card is a FX5500 256mb AGP.
- when the new card is put in and the computer is restarted, there are thick vertical lines on the screen (however, the vertical lines will not show up in a screenshot)
- when Windows boots up, the colors looked ‘washed out’ and the resolution is extremely low, and cannot be changed
- while the video cards drivers are being installed an error message appears, as shown in this screenshot: http://img110.images...untitledkf2.png
All of these issue dissappear when the old video card is reinstalled.
For reference, these are the AGP properties from AIDA32:
AGP Version - 2.00
AGP Status - Enabled
AGP Aperture Size - 64 MB
Supported AGP Speeds - 1x, 2x, 4x
Current AGP Speed - 2x
Fast-Write - Supported, Disabled
Side Band Addressing - Supported, Disabled
I know for certain that there is an insufficient PSU, as the FX5500 requires 350w and the current PSU is roughly half of that. What I’m curious about is whether that is the sole reason for the above problems, or could there be something else to it? I don’t want to put a new PSU in only to have these problems remain, so any advice would be appreciated.
