Ahoy MacRumors, So I recently purchased a Radeon 9800 Pro 256 (I think it's the 8chip model, due to the fact that it has what looks like 8 memory chips with 8 heatsinks) Anyhow, After doing my research, I've been trying to flash the appropriate ROM to get the card to function properly in the machine. However, after trying a few different ROMS, it simply will not display an image. All that I get is colored dashed lines that run vertical. Here is the interesting thing, all the ROMS listed for the 256 card use 378/337.5 MHz Core/Clock Speeds, however, when I open Graphiccelerator, it tells me the core and clock speed is 350/325. I thought this may be one of the issues. When looking through the ROM list, the only ROM that matches that clock speed seems to be the 128 card. Also, another interesting observation, after startup chime, it gives those crazy verticle lines, and for about 1 1/2 seconds i see the solid blue screen (the screen right before it displays the OS), then it fades nicely back to those crazy lines. It seems like it wants to work but there is some sort of conflict in the ROM perhaps. Could this be a driver issue? I tried researching but couldnt find info on any kind of driver for this card. Also, System Profiler recognizes the card as a 9800 Pro with 256 Memory so the machine is recognizing it just fine. I taped pins 3/11 so that isnt the issue. I really am looking forward to getting this card working and I feel like I'm so close. Any recommendations? One thing, I did not desolder and resolder those few resisters that bypasses the 64K restriction due to the fact that Graphiccelerator bypasses this on its own. Should I have done that? Would it even make a difference? Thanks so much MacRumors. -pixl And as reference: http://themacelite.wikidot.com/9800-working (I believe mine is the 8 chip model) http://themacelite.wikidot.com/wikidownloads2 http://thomas.perrier.name/index.html http://thomas.perrier.name/otherStuff/ati9800convertEN.html http://thomas.perrier.name/otherStuff/ati9800convertEN.html Thanks!
