Video Card Not Working on my mac

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a Diamond Stealth Ati Radeon 9250 that I use to use for my windows machine and now I've switched to mac and when I put the Radeon in my Powermac g3 blue and white, the screen doesn't come up can anyone tell me how to fix this problem?

Any Help appreciated!!!!

Macs use custom cards in that they have Mac-specific Rom. You'd need to flash the 9250 with a Mac Rom before it will be recognised.

The following site is probably the best for getting info on flashing GPUs for Macs:

www.strangedogs.com

Ignore the poodles and click on the forums.

I'd probably sell the GPU and buy a Mac one. It'll be nice if the Intel machines sort this affair out. I hate not being able to buy standard PC parts.
