Having recently bought a graphics card for the secondary PC (AMD 1.4 running XP Pro with 512M of RAM), it no longer plays video or plays games that would run when it had a 32M card in.
Have installed the software supplied and updated drivers from the web yet on booting a game it will work on all the lead in displays then at the UI it beeps and gives the error report sending screen.
Yes it is an old machine but it is for the kids and has given pretty good service, any ideas what could have caused this problem and how I can overcome it until funds allow for this machine to be replaced? One of the games is an MS game and worked fine before.
in control panel > add or remove . uninstall ati related software. if your old card was a radeon as well, then that takes care of it. if not look for programmes related to your old card and remove them. shut down your pc and reseat your new card just incase. then reboot and then re install your drivers. afterthought... you can insert your driver disc that came with your card as there is an option to remove ati software on it. ( was on mine anyway)
