hi all
i got a problem with my radeon 2400hd pro card
i bought a puter couple of months ago and then
after a couple of weeks i was getting wierd shutdowns, then again after a few weeks it would take ages 2 boot up(i mean like 10 mins 4 post screen)then one day it just gave me fatal error and all i could get was black screen of death on boot.
i finally tracked it down 2 the video card, took it out +resorted 2 onboard graphics +puter booted

Did you try to install the latest drivers for the card? Is there any sign of damage to the card e.g. overheating?

Ring whoever you got if from and get a replacement but if you have access to another pc with pcie you could try it in case its the motherboard.

Did you have onboard graphics Disabled when using the grapics card?

I have an ATi card and only use the standard ATi driver with it; in place of the hefty Catalyst offering I use ATi Tray Tools which are a fraction of the size, yet deliver virtually all the same features.

The ATi driver can be downloaded from the official website.

After uninstalling any ATi (or nVidia etc) drivers or software I use Drive Cleaner Pro (freeware) to clean up any remaining remnants before installing new drivers. See:
