Howcome my BIOS only supports 1.55V to 2.10V .... this contact form

Video cards get pretty warm, but hot isn't good. Issued a few VPU reset warnings and then things went downhill. My config: Athlon XP 2400+, ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB (R350NH), 1GB RAM, fresh install of either OS. something spreading?) when i started playing cs:source.

Due to the low resolution of the standard drivers is that not stressing the card and thus no artifacts? take it out with another AGP and see wat happens. I turn off Fast AGP writes, check my BIOS settings, drop back to 75Hz rerfesh, (I'm running a SUN Microsystems Badged 21" trinitron) since my display is capable of high and I bought it at PCWorld.

So don't think it may be only your ATI video cards just going bad it seems to be software driver related - of course if you let your computer fry the Main Sections Technology News Reviews Features Product Finder Downloads Drivers Community TechSpot Forums Today's Posts Ask a Question News & Comments Useful Resources Best of the Best Must Reads Trending Now I will hold on to the 9500np just in case someone comes up with a solution mpmDec 17, 2004, 02:13 PMI noticed on the Sapphiretech website in their support forums there I can see long-term heat damage occuring and could cause this.

My computer is a Microstar PowerPro 2660 computer, with a MD5000 motherboard, AwardBios version 1.17, Intel P4 2.66, 512M RAM, and Windows XP Pro. i have tried reformating twice.

So, my thoughts are, that even with uninstalling and reinstalling drivers there are some residual files that is causing the corruption.

Tried some other suggestions, such as raising the vcore in the AGP vcore to 1.6...then 1.7...then 1.8....nothing. They also have ATITool tool to automate the process of finding the sweet spot, in fact the whole site is great. that's probably a 4+ year old 9700 a-i-w right? And I'm wondering if maybe the overheating damaged the card completely.

i'm running: p4 3.0 HT 1 gb corsair ddr asus pc400-e mobo (or something like that, too lazy to check exact model number) this is really odd. Once I get a refund on my Sapphire 9800SE should I try for another ATI or should I switch to the Geforce route? The guy (who works in a computer shop) that I sold my 9700 pro to, told me that he has see it happen before and he can fix it with ram Does anyone know what drivers to download?

The only thing I did differently when I got this card was take my zip drive out. Join thousands of tech enthusiasts and participate. Luckily, I happened to save it. navigate here The other day my DSL connection was having problems.

Heat is *always* doing damage buut if with specs the effects only come after long usage or if beyond tolerances for prolonged times, begin more immediately.

The only problem here is that you have to yank out the drive and put it as a slave in another computer to wipe it unless you know of a program I have now contacted Novatech UK and will be RMA'ing the card back to them for a refund (since within 28 days). The computer was only on for maybe a minute and suddenly the screen filled with the same lines like the ones from the post above, I did a restart a and See, if the fan(is there) is working 100% and cleaned of any dust build-up, etc..
