I have a radeon 9200
recently fan on the heatsink started making noises so i took it to the dealer who said there is no waranty on the fan and didnt have a similar replacement heatsink which i could buy....
so what are my options
Just make sure if you get the Vantec IceBERQ 4 Pro, you get the CCB-A4C model as the CCB-A4F is for nVidia graphics cards. I would not mess with it though unless you think you can get the heatsink off easy and the PCB has the two holes needed to mount the Vantec cooler. I picked one up off Best Byte for $14 +shipping.
I really think you can just oil the fan though. It is likely the easiest and cheapest way to go.
thanks for replying guys .
Well the dealer agreed to change the fan
sice he had a spare one lying around.
But I think he screwed up the repair since
now when I plug in the card the comp wont go to POST just all fans etc.. move
but there is no image and no beeps(POST)
what could have gone wrong now ??
Wow. Installing a "spare fan lying around" on a card under warranty and breaking up the card in the process... With a dealer doing that I'd change store rather quickly. I hope at least this store will replace the card for a new one or refund you.
well a bit off topic:
recently I heard smarty pants from local comp shop telling the guy that DFI NF2 board he brought has ram slots in 2 different colors, obviously that means the originals were replaced
I got a replacement card but now there is
I run linux and it won't detect my card as
ATI radeon it keeps installing Generic
And in windows the Drivers on the Cd only
official and other(omega) drivers all crash without installing themselves .
the drivers on cd aren't good enough cause I am unable to get performance similar to previous radeon card(I played NFSU and cars etc was all slowed down a 1000 times):
ne idea what could be wrong
thanks for the reply
I tried this and it diidn't work
Official drivers still crash instead of installing
I also installed 4in 1 VIA drivers.
Is there a way that I can establish that this product this authentic,
I mean there is ATI written on it but thats just it.
The drivers I have got with this card are
all named sis* and while booting I get
ATI RADEON Bios message showing version and 128Mb memory
