u can use the compare validaor as shown below..

<asp:CompareValidator id="valRequired" runat="server" ControlToValidate="textbox1"
    ValueToCompare="50" ' here u can give any other value
    Type="Integer"
    Operator="GreaterThan"
    ErrorMessage="* You must enter the a number greater than 50" Display="dynamic">*
</asp:CompareValidator>

<asp:ValidationSummary id="valSummary" runat="server"
    HeaderText="Errors:" 'in header text u can provide header...
    ShowSummary="true" DisplayMode="List" ShowMessageBox="True") />

The validation summary control will collect all the error messages of all the non-valid controls and put them in a tidy list. The list can be either shown on the web page (as shown in the example above) or with a popup box (by specifying ShowMessageBox="True")

Hope this will solve ur question
