View Full Version : Is the card damaged?

07-21-03, 06:14 PM
I just installed a FX 5200 ver A 128MB card on my system:
EPox MB: 8K3A
memory: 1.2GB DDR memory
CPU: AMD Athlon 1500+
Monitor: Sony Multiscan 100ES
OS: Dual boot W2KPro and RHL8.0

When booting the system I've noticed that the monitor has a multicolored vertical bands on the screen. When using RHL the text is broken up.

Prior to this card I was using a GF2MX 200/64MB no issues. I've also noticed with my clients that I installed the card on they report the following problems:
colors appears to be disappearing
No signal messages.

Any ideas?

Sounds like it is the card, i've seen these sort of things with Gainward TI4200 cards.
