Good afternoon all,
A recent issue with my X800XT PE AGP card has spawned me to share my experience with it. As it was immensely frustrating, but solved in the end.
The card had previously worked & then started to fail by crashing the moment the actual drivers were loaded. The DVI connection produced garbage on the screen, and so it was natural to assume the card had packed it in. However, due the elusive nature of finding a replacement I perservered.
As it turns out, the gold connectors on the agp card had become corroded in one spot. After cleaning them the card worked in full again. So before you go tossing out your hardware thinking its toast, be sure to look at all options no matter how seemingly stupid. 😵
Id love to hear of any other strange issues you guys may have had with your hardware.
So many combinations to make, so few cases to put them in.
