any beeps?

Make sure it's seated correctly and any power connectors are hooked up. A lot of the X800's required extra power.

Sounds noob but first check all your connections/cables...including the card (slotted in firmly) ...monitor etc

Do you have multiple sources from the screen? e.g. DVI/VGA/HDMI? And is there a button to flick between the sources?

Erm i use a DVI cable. I figured out the problem now though, my power supply is a 250w and i need a 350w. Any ideas where to get one from?

dont get a 350 m8, thats just the minimum it will work on, X800's are power hungry. you get a 350 and minus the hard drives, dvd drives USB devices etc that you use, you still wont have enough juice to run it.


Look for a good 450-500w one, but not one that is that at maximum, get one that is constant, as a 500w max cheap one will run at around 350 all day and struggle to give you more, a 500 constant is guaranteed to output 500 all day, not just at it's peak.

When i'm back later i will do some searching for you.

The X800 will require a molex power cable of its own from the power supply too, the AGP port cannot output enough power on its own.
