So today my ATI 9800XT decided to bug out and it seems dead (does not boot when the computer is turn on) but when I put in another card it works fine. My question is what graphics card will put out the same performance without costing over $200 (50-100 being the ideal price) I dont want a top of the line card I just want to get my computer working again. I have not been keeping up with the graphics card news so any help would be appreciated.
Make sure you check both your power supply and your motherboard, i'm making some assumptions that could be wrong. Make sure you have an AGP socket and that your power supply is at least 400w to handle the HD3850 AGP.
Im having some problems installing the drivers. I installed the drivers that came with the CD, however, I want to be up to date with the latest drivers so i installed the one from the ati/amd website. I used a driver cleaner program to get rid of all my old drivers but when I try to install new drivers of any kind I get an error that says driver was not found. Is there a way to completely get rid of my old drivers so i can successfully install new ones?
