Hi,

 

I have purchased an ATI Radeon X1300 graphics card around 8 months ago it worked fine till recently but now I am facing some problem with it.

when i start my computer i see yellow and black spots all over my screen

i reported the same to ATI and they told me to update my drivers

i did that but still having the problem

i formatted my system installed everything again still the problem persist

i tried with my Linux system running Open SuSE it also has some display problems

when i uninstall the drivers it works fine but not when i reinstall the drivers

i have attached a snapshot so that all of u can have a look

any help in this will be welcome.

 

System config

AMD Athlon 64 3000+

MSI K8 m/b

1 GB transcend ram

Samsung 710N LCD monitor

450 watts PSU

Genuine Windows XP Prof

To me that seems more of an OS or software glitch/error than it does a GPU/ grahpics driver error, especially if those lines appear as they do only on Icons and folders.

 

Could try a windows Repair...

They appear everywhere from what i see.....a constant pattern over the top of whatever, regardless of what it is. If it's possible try the card in a different computer, also check your connections and cables, maybe there is some interference or something.

Oh I see it now..

 

Probably a bad Graphics card or memory on it, but you can try the driver.

 

Download driver cleaner pro, remove the card driver from Device manager then run driver cleaner pro, then install newest driver, if the problem presists you should try a diff card.

Looks like the memory is crapping out to me. I've seen it on a few cards before.

 

If you lower the memory clock speeds does it become more clear? You may not see any difference till you change the resolution (because it forces it to clear the framebuffer).

if you're having corruption in linux and suse ontop of windows, then you've got a hardware problem. either it's the card itself or the motherboard (slot area). the only way to fully tell is to slide that card into another machine and see what happens.

 

do you see anything weird during bootup/post/in the bios?

I had the same a couple of weeks ago. First i ran memtest, but memtest gave no errors. Seemed my videocard died on me. Out of the blue. Can you test it on another pc?

Looks like the card is dying take it back or use the warranty now if I were you. I have numerous cards that suffer the same problem. They all recently went in the bin as out of warranty for some time

it was over a problem of over heating

i removed my cabinet cover to let the air flow

that helped me

now there is no more problems

i think the on board heat sink on the card is not sufficient enough or the air flow in cabinet is not good

i think i will change my cabinet soon...
