Hi I wonder if someone could help, I've had problems playing games on my computer and playing videos. My screen will just crash cause my display device could not do a drawing is what the error says when I reboot my machine. It does it with games mostly just playing then totally rondomly it will flah black and my monitor will switch on stand by. I have to reboot to get it back on.
Just wondered where I could get a update driver for my graphics card Radeon 9700/9500 series. I went to the ATI site but on couldn't find mine only a all in wonder card.
Or could it be something else causing this. I have tryed to click in control panel/display/settings/advanced/troubleshoot/then move the hardware acceleration slider to disable all directdraw and direct 3D accelerations and this makes when I watch a video, I never have it crash but won't let me play a game. I've tryed all the other setting on the slider before I got to the (disable all directdraw and direct 3D accelerations) setting and my game still crashes and the videos don't work.
I'd be really grateful if anyone could help me out with this as it does my head in keep crashing when I'm just about to complete a level or something.
Is the card actually mad by ATI or is it POWERED by ATI Radeon? According to the ATI site Hercules use the 9500 & 9700 radeon chip and on their site click here they offer the catalist 3.10 for download for the 9500 & 9700 cards
