01-28-05, 11:54 PM
I just bought my 6600 GT tonight and after the instal my screen has a red tint to it. I have the power lead in and I have a 400WPSU. I had a 9600pro prior and I put it back in and everything is fine. I have uninstalled the ATI drivers and installed the most recent for the 9600 but for some reason I have this red tint.
I double checked to make sure it was seated properly. just dont know what else to do but return the card.

Ideally you should do a format and clean intall of WindowsXP. Residual drivers from a differing IHV will lead to nastiness. However, a red tinge probably means you have dud card more than anything else :(

Thanks for the help it was a bum card. well now my next issue is that I can not get it to play games when it starts up (warcraft3 for example) I get the no signal from my monitor but I hear the sound in the back ground. everything is fine until I try to play a game.
