9800SE thinks it has 8 pipes.

Q: 9800SE thinks it has 8 pipes.

Recently I was getting artifacts in games and noticed that the card was running hot so I got an Artic Cooler on it which is fine (much cooler now).

However in games I get the checkboard pattern over the game. The framerate is perfectly fine. Setting games to use 16 bit color / z-buffer reduces the problem slightly. I installed ATITool to see if underclocking would help then I noticed in the window "Active Pipelines: 8". Its a 9800SE, it should have four pipelines and every time I have used ATITool before it has reported four.

I have never done the soft or hard mod to this card.

I've tried a complete format and reinstall with various old and new drivers and the problem I still there. As I said the framerate etc. is fine. From what I have read about the softmod, the checkboard effect is often because the card can't handle the mod and do eight pipelines, so (hopefully) if I can set it back to four it will work fine.

Any idea why it would set itself to eight even though I have never modded it?
Is there any way to set it back to four? Maybe a bios flash that restricts it to four?

Thanks for reading.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

How effective are heat pipes, could they be used to cool a P4. If the copper pipes were brought outside the case and placed in a sutible cooling medium e.g an ice bath and the section of the pipe that was in the case was insulated to keep the case temp down, would this make a suitable silent cooling system.

A:Heat Pipes

Heat pipes are now used in heat sinks very effectively these days. I was a little sceptical to the efficacy of heat pipes till I realised that most laptops use this tech to keep the CPU cool, and comparison tests have shown that its much more efficient thatn without it.

How it works:
Basically, it just provides a heat conducting rod with low thermal resistance. Therefore, its efficacy is reduced the longer it is. Its like stretching a metal rod over a fire, a short one you'd burn your hand pretty fast, a long one you might not feel anything at all for a long time.

Also, I doubt you'd want to insulate the section of the pipe in the case, you'd more probably insulate the whole thing. At least you'd insulate the bit outside the case, so that the cold temps from your ice bath will reach the PC. But you want it to reach the CPU, so you'd insulate the whole bit. And you'd need a really thick heatpipe....

I won't suggest you do that.

A better solution? Water cooling, and run your radiator through that ice bath of yours

 Hi, There seems to be 2 types of fan modules installed on the T460s (besides the one that is for the model with dGPU). One of them is with one heatpipe, the other one is with two heatpipes. Two Heat PipesSingle Heat PipeCan someone tell me what is the difference between two and which one is more efficient? Lenovo Staff maybe? Also what is the reason for that some i7 are with 2 Heat Pipes and others are with 1. There is also difference between the fan modules. The single heatpipe fan is with 4 wires, while the other one is with 5 wires.  P.S.> And NO it is not the i7 vs i5 CPU, because I have i7 and I am with single Heat Pipe.   

T460s - Core i7-6600U, 12GB RAM, 512GB SATA 6G SSD, FHD, EM7455 WWANT440s - Core i7-4600U, 12GB RAM, Crucial MX200 500GB SSD, FHD, WWAN

Go to Solution.

A:T460s - Different FANs and Heat Pipes

The only one I have seen has 2 pipes.  Was one of them made earlier than the other?  (On the model sticker, there is a manufacture date after the serial YY/MM.)  The parts list only shows one manufacturer.  As far as 4 wires vs. 5 wires, I would expect it wouldn't matter.  Normally, only 3 wires are used - power, ground and tach pulse.  I would expect it wouldn't matter.  I looked at eBay for T460s fans for sale thinking I could see a picture.  They had 2 for sale - one with 1 pipe and 4 wier; the other with 2 pipes and 5 wires.

I have a HIS x1800gto that i know is unlockable with the right bios, ive acquired a bios that will do it its just that i am having incredible difficulty doing so.

My comp at first didnt have a floppy drive so i went with boot cds. The bootable cds wouldnt work for reasons unknown, i created like 5 of them, none would really get working so i jsut caved in and attatched a floppy drive.

created a bootdisk with atiflash, didnt work, reasons unknown, maybe because its a HIS ICEQ3 x1800gto and not a native (made by ati) card, so i used flashrom240, 237 and 16p. none worked. the same problems would come up-

device 0 not found
ati adapter not found
error 0FL01 when i tried to force flash.

obviously the card is there and is working fine. before this a while back and as recently as a few hours ago i attempted atiwinflash. ive heard horror stories about this program but it never really did or work for me till about 40 minutes ago. what i did was i just flashed it again with a fresh HIS x1800gto bios in an attempt to get flashrom to recognize my card. no dice.

now im at a loss since i know the card is there, its operating normally, its not overclocked, temps are prolly at 40c i would wager, so everything should be a go. anybody else have this card or been thru this?

thanks for any help my dudes.

A:Trouble flashing HIS x1800gto into having 16 pipes

Flashing those cards isn't guaranteed to work. If it was, they would be sold with all 16 pipelines already enabled. Maybe MOST of them can unlock, but maybe yours just can't. Obviously, if they could ALL be flashed to 16 pipelines, they would be sold as having 16 pipelines because the company could sell them as a more powerful model and get more money from them. Those ones are cards that were made to run on 16 pipelines, but were unable to according to some test (however inaccurate that test may have been). This means that some WILL run at 16 pipes but some won't. I guess you just got unlucky

Hey my m8 has a 9800SE and he wants to upgrade it to a 9800PRO at leats but preferably a 9800XT, i told him bout the fact that it has only 4 pipelines enabled and the other 4 can be enabled and hes up for it, i know the easiest way to do it is to softmod it with omega drivers or summit like that but we tried it and it just made his system run very very slow.

So i had an idea about flashing the BIOS to a 9800 PRO or XT BIOS and wondered if it would enable the other 4 pipelines? i have flashed the BIOS on my fx5900XT with a 5950Ultra BIOS and it works fine so i know how to do it and the risks of it but if i did put a 9800 PRO or XT BIOS on there would it enable the other pipelines and would it work kool? there is extra coolign on the card already so no worries bout overheating or anything..

your help wud be appreciated!


A:9800SE to 9800PRO/XT??

If softmodding doesn't work, it means the extra pipelines were defective. Flashing it with a 9800 Pro/XT Bios will only force those pipelines to be constantly active resulting in visual artefacts & strange performance behaviours. It's best not to try it.

i am about to buy a powercolor 9800SE 256MB and i know that it can be softmodded to a 9800PRO on some chips. i have also heard that if your chip is defective on which 4 of the 8 pipelines have been damaged it can produce a checkerboard effect or put multicoloured dots over your screen.

Does anyone know if this softmod can be reversed if it is unsuccessfull??

Thanks in advance

The modifications are only done in the driver so if it doesnt work you just uninstall the softmod driver and install the ATI Catalyst driver.

I've been at this thing for days on end. And cannot get it to work. I am using both Composite and Tuner modes. Tuner does not detect any channels.

The main problem is that, when I go to play NTSC PS2, GC games etc they show up black and white. I've been switching to NTSC mode constantly, but I get the same thing. And when I try it with Tuner mode, it still doesn't work, even though I have a SCART lead in. The closest I can get to colour is by playing PAL games (duh) or by displaying NTSC/JAP games in PAL_60 mode, however PAL_60 flickers alot and has a huge black bar on the left hand side of the display. Not good.

So I ask of you, would anyone be kind enough to help a n00b like me out? ;_;

Hi all,

I was wandering if anyone has successfully got their Radeon 9800 (or any of the older cards that require legacy drivers) working on Win 8.

I tried both the AMD Catalyst Win 8 Preview drivers, but they obviously don't support the legacy cards. I've also tried the Vista drivers, the same ones you use for Win 7 (which work fine), to no avail.

Any ideas?

ATI Radeon 9200 SE 128MB DDR AGP 8X

nVIDIA FX5200 256Mb DDR , 8X AGP

Hi everyone, I've got a problem here...

I recently got given my friend's old Radeon 9800SE card, which he said was cutting out after a few minutes of use. I thought this was overheating, so I removed the GPU heatsink and replaced the rock-hard thermal stuff with fresh goop.

It now runs without cutting out, but when I try to run anything 3D or play a video clip, there's lots of horizontal lines or regularly spaced green dots on the screen. Any idea why this is happening? Was something damaged by the heat?

Also, if I use the Catalyst 6.11 driver, it acts very slow, but if I let Windows install its driver by itself (Xp installs version 6.14, which is not available on the ATI site) it works fine. If Direct3D and DirectDraw hardware acceleration is turned off, the lines disappear. Does this mean it might be a driver problem?

Don't know how to explain this problem.
I have bought 9800se and cannot use it, because it restarts the pc before or on the user's screen of winxp (the screen freezes or is restarted without asking)

I have tried to install drivers on "Safe Mode" in Winxp, but when ask to reboot it's the same :wtf:

First I start on the drivers Omega(downloaded) and I put 9800se overcloked (and normal too), then I try to install the disc drivers that come with the graphic card (Ati display driver), installs perfectly the Winxp driver, I put "not to reboot" to install the catalyst drivers that come on the same disc and there is when freezes the pc (the red light keeps lit, as if it was working).
Note: before installing again any other driver I have insured myself of erasing the previous one.

Hi guys,

Is therer anyway to keep these setting for games with my ATI card? Would the problem be the driver?

I'd say your next step is to plug in a known working AGP card. I'd be surprised if your brand new card suddenly up and died, but it is possible. Your AGP slot could be the culprit in this case. Which would mean you'd need a new motherboard.

As a side note, since the ATI card draws more power than the last video card that you had in there, I assume, and it runs fine with the old PCI card. It is very possible that the socket you have the computer plugged into simply cannot power everything needed. This can happen in older houses/apartments etc. and newer ones as well that have not been properly wired. I bring this up as I had the exact same problem in sept. of last year and I had to fix the wiring in the wall to fix the problem. There wasn't anything wrong with my computer. If you try another known working AGP card that draws as much or more power than the ATI card you've got and it doesn't work I'd look to the wiring inside the wall. No joke.

Running Windows XP SP2 on an ASUS motherboard (P4C800) with ATI All-In-Wonder 9800SE. Since a few days, I'm seeing yellow lines and rectangles on my screen. Strange thing: If you resize an open window, these yellow things disappear.

Um, this is a really bad problem. I had a 9800 PRO 256MB die on me just a few days ago to a similar problem, it would do that every once in a while, and then go away. But just recently, I bought a new case and PSU, and luck should have it, all the letters during boot are rainbowed, and it doesn't go away, my card is dead, wont even boot anymore. I would first start off with a thorough inspection of the card itself, and the die. Using a picapole works well (what printers called a set magnifier) to see if the top of the die cracked, or corner chipped, like mine started to. look for your thermal cream running, hope it isnt, because that could cause it for the short term as well.

When it was doing in every once in a while, I reseated the card, and for the most part, it would go away on the first try, then it started progressing worse, until my new case and PSU, where it is just dead. I sure hope its not dead, but dont rule it out.

There's another strange observation: I connect the power connector from computer 1 (a PSU connected to a P2 Mobo only) to my card in computer 2, to see if it's the problem with overloaded PSU. I turned on computer 1, then computer 2, it boot normally. Today I accdentally switched the PSU of computer 1 off, guess what? its fan kept blowing! It happens that the power comes from my AGP slot in computer 2 to that PSU.
If it's the case, I think the problem is due to "backflow" of electricity from the AGP slot to PSU...just guessing

A:I need some questions answered about my Powercolor radeon 9800se

Flashing the BIOS wont help. If the soft modded driver didnt work, you got artifacts, that means 4 of the rendering pipelines are damaged or just wont work. Since that card has 256bit memory you will still get very good performance. There isnt a huge difference with the extra 4 pipes enabled. The first one I got didnt take the mod but luckily it went bad a few weeks later and the replacement card did mod. Deffinately get the VGA cooler. That card runs extremely hot.

Everex Stepnote Windows XP sp3 Iphone 5 ios 8.1 hotspot connection issue

I'm trying to use a iPhone as a wi-fi hot-spot. It comes up in the list of Available Wireless Networks, but when I try and connect it comes up with...

"Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of available networks, and try to connect again"

Have updated all drivers, updated all Windows components, cleaned registry, defragged drive, and spyware removal just for good measure.
Have noticed wireless connection keeps jumping to OPEN Shared, WEP connection when should be WPA-Personal.
Any fixes would be better than none,
Am using my laptop to access this site, there for not able to Download TSG Sysinfo for laptop with problem.

Any suggestions would be good

My MSN messenger got corrrupted and possibly IE as well, due to something that was attached to a bogus email security notice. MSN wanted me to use "Housecall" to scan for a virus,
since everything that they asked me to do still would not allow me to reinstall MSN7. Since all that I can use now is IE and it is so slow that the program kepts aborting. I downloaded this one instead and have attached the log. Can you please tell me which is any of those listed should remove?

If you have a ScanJet 3200C and experience the above problems, either download and install this patch, or download the very latest drivers which should be dated at least January 2002.****

I have checked bios that's good
I have reinstalled the driver several times
The device manager say it is just a cd rom and I have tried playing in safe mode and still look at the device manager and it says it is just a cdrom.

I have tried everything on HP's Mr fix it with nothing fixing it .
I would understand that their something wrong with the dvd player other then I can play dvds burned on it from previous days.
When I run mr fix it it doesn't say anything except that the media I put in it is not the correct media for fixing the problem.

Any body got any ideas to try next????????????????????

Whenever I try to view a streaming video the buffering bar starts out nice and slow, and then starts doubling itself! Soon it's up to 100% and the movie starts. In about 6 seconds the play bar has allready caught upto itself. I can't just press pause and wait for it to load either because it's a streaming video . So any help would be great.


A:Help my computer thinks it's better than what it is!

Try opening up Windows Media Player and going to Tools>Options. There should be a tab on there that deals with buffering or internet connections. On this tab you should be able to adjust the time allowed for buffering or the speed of your connection. You may want to specify a minimum time for buffering in this tab.

I posted in error where I it says widows is loading files and goes to start up repair 4 days ago and haven't got any response, so I think this might be my problem after I got this info on the error I get. Other than, when I run bootable MiniTool Partition Wizard it just loads for about 10 seconds and my laptop restarts. I had a secondary OS with a GRUB boot menu until I replaced it with bootrec.exe on cmd.exe in the startup repair thinking it'll fix my problem.
I want to fix my computer with out getting anything deleted if possible, I have no repair/installation disc nor do I have restore points.

I am running xp with sp1. At least that is what my computer says, however, when I try to install some programs such as media player it tells me I must have windows xp. Microsoft website will not let me upgrade to sp2 because it thinks my computer is not compatable and various other issues like this. I tried to download a patch, I don't remember which one, and it told me that the patch was not available on a server edition of windows. I should not have a server edition. I am very confused. I ran several anti-virus and AdAware came up clean, however MWAV escan shows trojans and keyloggers over and over even after it says it has deleted them.
