Hello, I just purchased the new Radeonx1300 Pro. I previously had a Radeon
9550. Now when I remove all drivers and hardware of my previous video card then switch in the x1300 card, as soon as I plug my Monitor in and boot up my CPU a pattern of pixels is the only thing I see. I can hear my cpu entering Windows XP/etc. but I can't see a thing. Just this screen of colour with dashed lines of pixels running vertically down the screen. I switched back to my older video card and it works fine. Would it be that the x1300 doesn't support this monitor? It's a Samsung SyncMaster 753DF.

Hi. What does the card require that your system have in order to make it run properly? Is it a PCI card?

It is a AGP, 8x/4x like my older card.

Is there a supplementary power input on the video card you have not hooked up?

Also, unplug your video cable and double check that all the pins are standing straight. Sometimes one gets bent over when you plug in the cable, and can cause this problem

If not, I think you have a bad card and should return it. If you are getting this glitchy behaviour right from boot up (without even a motherboard splash screen) that is likely the case.

I had behaviour like this when a pipe leaked on my water cooling and it splashed all over my card. I took it out and left it to dry amazingly it was fine after. My point is it sounds like its damaged if it had dashing pixels in the BIOS, if it does come down to being damaged, contact the seller.
