Technical Issues / Re: X1000 video fix needed
« on: July 01, 2006, 09:11:22 AM »
Update - I installed the fix from Whiteheat and everything seemed great. In the BIOS I changed the setting so that the fan would run constantly. Seems like that may be the underlying reason for the warpage. I was all set to reinstall the OS, but the video started going whacky again. I do believe I'm going to need a new video card.

I found the "Omega Drivers" that everyone's talking about, but there were three choices and would like to hear which one is recommended - 1) Radeon Omega Driver 2.6.42,  2) ATi Catalyst v5.6 (with Control Panel) or 3) ATi Catalyst v5.6 (with Catalyst Control Center). I figure that one of these has the preferred adjustment console.

Lastly, any hot leads for a great deal on a new video card. I'll check out the choices that are mentioned in this post.

$100 including shipping seem like a very good deal for a 64MB video card. Hopefully the $12 fix from WhiteHeat will do the job. If not I'll look to eBay. Thanks.

Thanks for the replys, guys.

I just sent the $12 to WhiteHeat for the fix "kit". He says that 80% of the problems are solved by that. Thanks for that kf_man.

deluxe - I just checked out  and they don't show anything under parts. Before I found the fix article, I spent many hours looking for a replacement part, only finding used stuff on eBay and expensive stuff at HP's site. Any links to cheap replacements would be appreciated.

There was a fix at, but they're currently out of business.

The computer has the blank screen problem that responds to the 6,7,Y treatment.
The solution was to wedge something between the video card and the heat shield.

I found a highly detailed solution with pictures at the above site, but when I went back there a few days later the site was gone :(
