problem with ati radeon x1300??
i just recently built my long awaited computer, and after installing all the drivers from the cds provided i was all ready to test out the graphics card with a game, game of choice: splinter cell pandora tomorrow (dont ask me why).
the graphics wer not bad, but thats not the problem here, a few minutes in, after watching the intro the game would freeze, the sound would keep going, but after 5 seconds it too would stop, leaving my screen with a "no signal" msg.
i restart my comp, it seemed as if nothing happened.
i then tried the next game i had on me, condition zero, and while watching the intro, the sound and picture would skip for about 5 seconds, then turn off, also leaving me with a "no signal" msg.
i dont know what the problem is, could it be the graphics card? i have read that alot of people have had problems with ati cards.
i dont know if this helps but, i was able to watch tv, movies, without any problems, only is it with games that the comp plays up.
here are my comp specs:
amd athlon 64 3700+ socket 939,
asus proactive a8n5x motherboard,
gecube ati radeon x1300 pro 512mb ddrII,<=== problem?
2x 512mb ddr ram kingstons (i hope they are)
200gb wd hd,
500w power supply,<==== or is it my cheap generic psu?
hope sum1 can help
