Hi has anyone got an ATI gfx card, if you have you should know that on the taskbar is an ATI icon, well mine has dissappeared for some reason unknown to me and i cant get it back. does anyone know how.
navigate to C:\program files\ATI Technologies\ATI Control panel
in here find and click on "SmartGart" (it will be one of a few red ati icons)
this will bring up the smartgart screen and if you click "basic agp settings" it should pop up the control panel where you will find options at the top along with direct3d etc.
also,just had a thought,if you are using a seecondary monitor and its set as your primary one then you may not have all the options listed in control panel.
on the basic display settings screen you should see two screens,1 & 2.click on screen one and make sure the "this device is my primary monitor"box is checked.bothe boxes here should be ticked.click screen two and untick the boxes if they are ticked.click screen one again and check the advanced settings tab again.
