ATI Radeon 9200SE not working properly
Posted 08 September 2006 - 08:10 AM
I am new to this community.I had purchased a graphics card ASUS 9200 SE last year. It is not functioning properly. When i connect it , the display on monitor is in form of coloured lines (vertical) .
I cant figure it out what might be the issue, but when i connect my monitor input to onboard video graphics i get clear picture on monitor,

just one more thing i wanted to clarify from you guys is that before i try this out, i hope that my graphics card is fine, cause my local vendor was telling me that your graphics card might have damaged its VRAM

i tried your trick you had suggested the other day,
what i did was as follows..
1) uninstall the onboard graphics driver
2) shutdown machine
3) connect graphics card and change video port
4) then switched on the PC , but it was still showing those colored vertical lines
so, during next try, i didnt connect the videoport to graphics card one and switched the PC on,
in this case i was not getting a picture at all!, the monitor kept blinking without any picture
The moment i remove graphics card from , and connect the video port to the onboard one, i soon got the picture
i hope that my motherboard slot for graphics card is intact!

You didn't mention what motherboard this is, or what make and model system that you have.
If not, then the onboard driver will continue to be re-installed when Windows starts and cause the issue.
Also, this is an AGP video card and not a PCI card, correct?

sorry i did not provide info about my system.
512 mb ram
graphics card -> Asus Radeon 9200 SE
i did as suggested by sampson, and when connected the graphics card and attached my monitor cable to it, the same problem continued i.e vertical coloured lines

i had also uninstalled all the previous drivers for the onboard card and then shut the PC down,
then i connected the card, and connected the monitor cable to this card,
then when i turn ON my PC, i continue to get the lines
so, no chance to going to BIOS!
Thanks for your suggestions!! REGARDS!

Intel® Extreme Graphics 2 controller is the integrated graphics controller within the Intel® 82865G Graphics and Memory Controller Hub (GMCH). The Intel® 865G chipset contains two separate, mutually exclusive graphics options. Either the Intel® Extreme Graphics 2 controller (contained within the 82865G GMCH) is used, or an AGP add-in video card can be used. When an AGP add-in video card is installed, the integrated Intel Extreme Graphics 2 controller is disabled.
So apparently a bios change is not needed. They also say;
The D865GBF AGP socket is keyed for Universal 0.8 V AGP cards that comply with the AGP 3.0 specification or 1.5 V AGP cards that comply with the AGP 2.0 specification. The AGP connector supports 8x, 4x AGP 3.0 add-in cards operating at 0.8V, or 4x, 1x AGP 2.0 add-in cards operating at 1.5V.
Note: There is no support for AGP 2x operation or legacy 3.3V AGP cards.
I don't know if the 9200 SE meets these standatds. I can't seem to find this exact information.
Some troubleshooting guides can be found here on the Asus site (I hope the link will work).

The best way to test the video card, would be to test it on another computer to see if the video card has gone bad.
But, make sure that the video card is peoperly seated in the AGP slot. On some systems, you need to apply a little pressure when seating the card in the AGP slot. Also make sure that when you secured the card with the retention screw, that the card does not partially pop out of the slot on the far end. Some cards fit somewhat tightly on some motherboards and this can happen.
On inspection, you should only be able to see a little of the gold connectors on the card in the AGP slot. What is exposed should be even.
How long was the card working before this happened?
It actually may be that the video card went south, if the card was working properly for a time.
But, make sure that the card is peoperly seated in the AGP slot.
