Somewhere between this components i have conflict. I cant use any 3D accelerated app (like SolidWorks or Pro/Engineer, Catia..etc nothing 3D accelerated works)

Or somethimes does work for a few seconds and then freezes...
im trying to solve this problem since 2006 with no success


if anyone has idea...or had similar problem pls help!

While we appreciate detailed system specs, that was waaaaay too much info, most of it useless.

We need to know more about what troubleshooting steps you have taken. Mainly, have you completely updated your operating system with all of its security patches and service packs? Are you using the latest drivers for your motherboard chipset, video card, and any other additional hardware? Have you updated the BIOS on your motherboard?
November 26, 2008 7:06:30 AM

I have older drivers for video card coz with new CATALYST its even worse...
im using Win XP with SP2
i have latest drivers for chipset(VIA Hyperion 4in1)
and, yes, i updated BIOS to latest...

and i tryed reinstaling WinXP and its the same

This is why im bothered with this problem:

in these images u will see what is true problem i cant use any 3D accelerated application...

A lots of people had Radeon 9600Pro and if u had problems please help

When i start SolidWorks2007 i get this it starts normally

" alt="" class="imgLz frmImg " />

Then when i need to start working my work-environment wont load correctly...(maybe some D3D problem)

1st image is what is now and second how it should be...

1st:
" alt="" class="imgLz frmImg " />

2nd:
" alt="" class="imgLz frmImg " />

thanks for help!

I installed new catalyst driver over old ones...i have 2 control panels loaded and it works good for now...it seems like this solved a problem...
how?why? i dont know...

thanks for reading :) )
December 4, 2008 8:27:27 PM

btw...now ar new problems coming...
somewhere during working on comp it freezes and monitor turns off and displays a messahe avout voltage over the top value...
so i guess all this problems are conflict between Ati Radeon 9600Pro and Eizo monitor...
