I upgraded my cpu from a celeron 2.0 (running 2.67 133fsb) to a P4 2.4 (same 133 fsb) now I have lost red on my ATI 9500 Pro Radeon video card. Any ideas what to do? I tried reinstalling the drivers no help there?

Are you sure it's not your monitor cable? It's rare to lose a single color output on a video card. Have you put another video card in to see if the problem is even the 9500?

ya.. a buddy of mine found everything but the red on his moniter go when he hooked up his system again. after a few hours on the phone i gave up and shortly before he came home for christmas he found that it was just one of the pins in his moniter cable was bent. he bent it back works just fine.

if you are unhooking and hooking up your system often, buy a moniter cable extension, because if one of those pins break off your screwed. as you'll have to ship it off to the manufacturer for warrenty (assuming it's still under it). and shipping an entire moniter ain't exactly cheap :) and you lose all use of your computer for a week or so (unless you have a spare moniter lying around). so replacing a extension cable is much easy then that :)

I put in my old GEforece2 card it worked fine, went back to the ati and it was dead, taking it back to best buy. This time I am going to try a 9500np with the 8 pipeline mod
