    Pls people help me.
    I have Sapphire ati x1650 pro 512mb pcie.
    The problem showed up 3 days ago.
    So when the computer is booting the screen is filled with lines yelow blue red bla bla etc. i cant even reinstall windows because i cant read anything. SO when is booting there are lines but when enters in Windows Xp everything is ok, the picture is steady. I know that is the graphic card problem because i updated my motherboard bios and everything is the same. i have two monitors attached and the lines are the same on both. Maybe the bios is messed up.
    Someone pls make bios dump from the original bios and send it to me on pls people.


    Or maybe someone have a fix for this problem...

    THX

    Well... I'm sorry to say this but your card is probably fried. I don't know any way to fix this other than changing the card... Same thing happened to me with my 6200, I'm on integrated graphics for now and looking for a replacement.

    I agree with BullGod on this one, definitely time to replace the card, and the first stage is to try to RMA the card and get a cheap spare for now.

    How long have you had this card? one thing you could do before you trash or rma it is to take the card a part clean it and put some artic silver #5 ...put it back together and try it again..good luck
