Ok, so I get my new card (A ATI Radeon saphire 9800+ Pro) and switch it out with my old ATI Radeon 9200+ and it is situated perfectly in the AGP slot and I think windows detects it because in teh scren where you shoose your resolution it says I am using Plug and Play Monitor on RADEON 9800... but I can't get any games to start or any other graphic intensive programs... I get this error message [IMG]http://img158.exs.cx/img158/8123/error4rs.jpg[/IMG]

Any help here would be greatly appreciated :cool:

Are you running the latest drivers for your card? Or at least the ones supplied on the manufacturer cd?

0

Yes. I installed the drivers that came with the card and I d/l'ed the newest form the the ATI site.

Would I need to (un)install teh old one or something?

0

Yes! Make sure you uninstall any previous drivers before installing new ones. That goes for the old card drivers and the (old) drivers supplied with your new card.

...ok.... I don't know where to go to (un)install them... :confused: :rolleyes:

Anyone tell me where?

dont drivers always leave some sort of files behind even if u remove them and the best way to remove them completly is too reformat your pc, or maybe thats just if your switching companies, o well :o

Ok... I (un)installed all previous drivers and the new ones for the card then (re)installed them. It works now! :eek:

There are numerous driver cleaners available for download. A format is only necessary if you can't get the card working no matter what, or you're a performance/benchmarking nut.
