Hi all, hope you are fine !
I have just received this ASUS Radeon 9800XT. Was really happy...then rapidly realized the card wasn't working.
In fact, when plugged to my motherboard and with the Molex connector plugged, my computer starts then stops immediatly...looks like a short somewhere...but where?
When the card is just connected to the AGP port without Molex power, the computer starts but displays nothing (not even the "NOT Enough power please plug..." message).
When I received the card, there was some corrosion on the heatsink and some capacitors had some stranged marks...
Do you have an idea to save this card?
