Troubleshooting Video Drivers – Video Card Failure Explained

The video screen of your ATIKMPag Linux operating system may crash or fail to display video messages because of a missing or corrupt device driver. Video output on Linux systems has historically been better than Windows but the output on Windows systems has improved greatly in recent years. Most of the improvements have been made through software updates and service packs however sometimes problems still occur. If you are having this problem you will need to use the AtiIKmpag Linux driver updater program to resolve it.

The driver updater works by checking all the latest video card drivers for errors and outdated information and then fixing any of the problems. It will then update the AtiIKmpag Linux video card drivers. In many cases this can fix the problem completely. It has been reported that this program fixes more problems on some computers than a newer installation of the operating system itself. It is not uncommon for an older Linux distribution to have AtiIKmpag working properly after an update. It is not unusual for this program to work perfectly after an upgrade in most cases.

How do you diagnose a bad video card?

Your video card is probably old and out-of-date. This might be the case if your computer did not come with a graphics driver when you purchased it. Most modern desktop computers should have a video card driver that will allow the display of video. However if this card is not installed, your AtiIKmpag Linux driver updater program will not work and will result in the video failing to appear or failing to work at all. To determine if your video card is too old you can run a diagnostic test that will show if it has passed all the necessary tests for a successful installation of the AtiIKmpag Linux driver.

Failure of your video RAM

A failure of your video RAM is another possibility. This can be resolved by installing the latest version of the OpenCPU or BIOS updates to your operating system. Some systems also have built in support for video RAM that will automatically replace a video RAM that fails. If your system was configured to use a PCI slot for an expansion card and you have a failed card, then you will need to contact the manufacturer for a replacement. Be sure to disconnect other PCI cards from your system before trying to repair the failed video RAM.

Damaged Wiring

Another possible reason for your video card failing to function correctly is damaged wiring. Be sure to check all power connections and the connection between your video card and the mother board. It might also help to run a trace of voltage through these wires to see if the problem is the connection. Many times it can be quite easy to discover where the damage is and simply replace the bad connection.

It may be a more serious problem that is causing your system to fail to run. In this case you will need to take your system to a repair shop and have it checked out. While a system may look like it’s working fine on the surface, there may be serious issues that can only be found by testing the system under very specific conditions.

Insert a CD or DVD in Computer’s Optical Drive

Testing your video card will help you to pinpoint the problem. To do this you will need to download Windows DVD from Microsoft and then burn the disc to a CD or DVD-ROM. Insert the CD inside your computer and follow the directions on the CD. You will receive a bootable DVD that you will have to insert into the computer’s optical drive. This software should install the latest graphics drivers and will allow you to view the desktop display.

If you’ve discovered that your system has a failure, then you should not delay in calling a technician to assist you. Video card failure is among the most common reasons why computers fail. But there are many other problems that can cause your system to malfunction and having a licensed and professional technician on hand will ensure that all of your hardware is working properly again.
