Mram is still being judged by the masses

Default What happened?

Until recently my Sapphire Radeon 9700pro worked great. Have had it for a couple of years with no trouble at all. Some days ago my screen became corrupted with graphical distortions so I guessed the card had given up. This was "confirmed" when I put a budget AGP card in, and it worked alright. So I managed to get a 9800pro to boost the performance but then the same problems came back!?

It seems as whenever I put a ATI Radeon card which use extra power extension cable from the power supply, I get graphic distortions, white become yellow and stripes all over the screen. I have removed the old drivers correctly and installed latest. (Also tried the ones I had when everything worked). I noticed that in Dxdiag the option to test Direct3D was greyed out. I have not installed or changed anything in the system prior to the malfunction. The powersupply is over 500W.

I now have a Nvidia Geforce MX400 and it runs fine, but I want the performance from the ATI card for my gaming.

Does someone have an idea to what is causing this? Thanks in advance!

Doesn't matter if its 500 WATTS+... I have 500 watts and get the same problelm.. It could be ur refresh rate on ur screen or buy A GOOD power supply like antec.
