    3850 AGP OC'ing, Vmods, experiences, suggestions, where to buy

    I decided to look one last time before taking you up on your offer and found a couple of downloads. Weird... Thanks anyways. I'm really hoping to get acceleration working on this card but it seems that most people with AGP have the same problem.

    Iron Man Blu-Ray not playing on PowerDVD???

    Well I give up on getting hardware acceleration in XP. I tried pretty much every software/splitter/decoder combo out there and no luck. Some work better then others but without acceleration there is lag and audio sync issues so that's enough of that. I do prefer matroskasplitter for ease of use...

    Cool I'll look into it here soon. I just about exhausted my options finding a workaround in XP for hardware acceleration. Plus it's getting old quick...soo many options/software combos, but no luck with any of them. VISTA...can't avoid it forever I guess.

    Iron Man Blu-Ray not playing on PowerDVD???

    It works allot better but I get no sound and it's not always smooth. I'm not done trying new settings and software yet. Got a good lead so I'll post back.

    Iron Man Blu-Ray not playing on PowerDVD???

    I'll remove every bit of whatever players & codec packs are on my computer and go with a fresh start using MPC HC again. It's said that various codec packs can interfere with acceleration so I give it a shot. I'll give coreAVC a shot too and see what happens :toast:

    Are you using the hotfix drivers? I get the same if I use the regular drivers. Link: http://support.ati.com/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=894&task=knowledge&questionID=31625 @innocent: Will using Vista lite get rid of the 15.5 GB warning that is preventing me from installing it? If so I'll...

    Iron Man Blu-Ray not playing on PowerDVD???

    What would that be? I just tried mediaplayer classic home theater which worked a little better but no acceleration and unwatchable still. There seems to be various decoders that when used with certain players will work but I haven't tried all those combos yet. Something with the decoder using...

    Iron Man Blu-Ray not playing on PowerDVD???

    I think you are both right in a way. I'm having issues with any hidef playback and have no GPU utilization even though the GPU (HD3850) is supposed to do most of the work. It turns out that the software (API) that utilizes the GPU (DXVA 2.0) for hardware acceleration is vista specific. So...

    After more research I think I know what the problem is... AVIVO does not offer any actual decoding software, it only allows decoder developers to utilize the DXVA API. DXVA 2.0 allows video capturing and processing operations to be hardware accelerated, but DXVA 2.0 is available only on...

    I've tried 6-7 programs for video playback and decoding but none of them make any difference. Is it because I am playing a file rather that a blue-ray or HD disk? The sapphire websiete also says this: and I tried a 1080P TV but had to use a normal monitor cable due to lack of a HDMI port...

    What to do with a dead X850XT?

    I had the exact same problem on an X800. It happened by over tightening an after market cooling solution. I was able to get the problem to go away for a while by adjusting the coolers position but the slightest movement caused the problem to come back. It finally stopped going away altogether...

    No they wouldn't load :wtf: May have been a bad download but I don't really have the time to mess with the computer with work and all. Maybe in a day of two I give it a go again. On a positive note I overclocked my GPU and let it run on ATI tool for a whole day at 810 Mhz. No artifacts...

    ATI X850XT AGP problem

    Answer to the switch question pages 43 & 44: http://www2.ati.com/manuals/X800agp.pdf I know this is an X800 but I doubt it changed for the X850. This may not change/help anything but now we know:toast:

    ATI X850XT AGP problem

    Just a thought but maybe if you switch to a low resolution before connecting it may work. The manual says any resolution higher than 1020 X 768 (page 25)will result in no display on a normal TV. Possibly an older version of catalyst/CCC will do the trick if you're still interested in trying...

    ATI X850XT AGP problem

    No switch at the green arrow? pretty sure this is where you change from PAL to NTSC if that is the problem. Never hat to touch them though so I'm not 100% on this. The manual should say Are you using the supplied cables for the VIVO option? I only hooked up to a TV a couple times, but used...

    I'm using the latest beta version of ATI traytools found here: http://www.playground.ru/files/11173/ It has working fan control and allows me to overclock too. The only problem for me with this version is I can't display the 3D image or use the functions that require it. Just gives me...

    I have no issues with CCC, I can go all the way to the max the slider will give (720/950) stable.
