Problem with ATI Graphics card

  Chewie100 19:58 07 May 2003

I have an ATI Radeon All-inwonder 8500DV card with my Evesham Pentium pc. I reinstalled Windows XP at the weekend. Since then any games I have tried playing are blocky and jittery and have crashed on more than one occasion. I have downloaded the newest drivers for the card and tried turning off all background programmes including Norton Anti virus. This is the second time I have reinstalled windows in a month to try and solve the problem. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. (I have an Asus motherboard)

Did you uninstall the old drivers first? and when you got new drivers did you disable Norton during the download and install?
It's also worth a look at the 8500 card in case it isn't pushed into the slots properly.

hope this is helpful.

Dunno - just a thought that when I had similar problems I was advised to install the Via 4 in 1 driver pack (suited my mainboard). Worked a treat and does something between the AGP slot and mainboard connections - cleverer people here will explain better than I.

Hope it helps
