Considering that the message reads, "The display driver for ATI Technologies Inc. RAGE 128 PRO AGP 4X TMDS seems to be responsible for the system instability", I would start by upgrading your driver to the latest version. You can find your driver on ATI's website.

Try that out and see if it helps at all.


After i downloaded the whole file and almost was compliting the installation,i got this message:
thx for helping ,but can u tell what should i do now?

That means that you got the wrong file. You need to ensure that you are getting the driver that exactly matches the hardware.


my fan's power was making a lot of noise and damaged .when i changed it i don't have that problem any more.thx for helping me.
