Hello, I just bought the new Radeon x1300 Pro. I previously had a Radeon 9200, so in order to play some of the newer games I felt it was time for an upgrade. I made sure my motherboard could support 8x, my cpu is fairly new, only about 2 or 3 years old. It is a Pentium 4, 2.4 GHZ processor, with 768mb of ram, and a GE 8IPE1000 Gigabyte Motherboard. Now when I remove all drivers and hardware of my previouse card then switch in the x1300 card, as soon as I boot up my cpu a pattern of pixels is the only thing I see. I can hear my cpu entering windows xp ect. but I can't see a thing. Just this screen of cream colour with dashed lines of pixels running vertically down the screen. The screen is fairly nice too, a flat panel LCD from Norquest. A friend at work suggested mabey the card is not seeded properly, but I made sure it was all the way in there. Also I realized there is an alternative power supply for the card, I did not hook this up, could that possibly fix this problem? I am going to try once I get home. The fan on the card starts running as soon as I boot up, so it is getting power, I thought that I'd at least see somthing. Has anyone ever had an issue like this? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
