I just went out and bought a visiontek radeon 2400 pro agp 8x video card. got home opened it up and i got the 2600 pro n8ice right, kinda. The card did not come with a 4pin to 6pin power adapter because the 2400 didn't need one, but the 2800 does. Made a "custom" adapter (trust me proffesional not the problem). I went and uninstalled everything ati on my computer just from the add remove programs. popped in the new card gave it power and started up i got lines running vertical all over the screen but i figured i needed to install the driver and it would fix it. installed driver restarted and crash after i clicked my profile to log in or just blank monitor not sure just went black. put in old video card and worked perfect uninstalled drivers again downloaded from visiontek website no better. omega drivers supprisingly didn't even let me get to welcome screen. but if i uninstall all the drivers the card is a little slow and i get the lines but at least it works. i have checked my bios pretty confident but not sure if it's set correctly. tried a couple driver update programs. nothing. contacted visiontek, bullshit employees reading off some program. not power supply i dedicated a 250w power supply just to the card, did nothing. searched forums for hours lots of problems with this card just not my problem. i know computers pretty well but still got a lot to learn. any help would be great. i am upgrading from a radeon 7000 64mb. i got a deal on this card for 70 bucks on clearence so can't return it.
