Your flux capacitor is probably burning out. You should replace it.

Make sure your system is getting enough power.
If you do not have the full 1.21 gigawatts it just won't work.

I would suspect driver corruption initially and would suggest following the instructions found at ATI's web site to FULLY UNINSTALL ALL ATI SOFTWARE.....

Once all remnants of ATI are removed, you should be able to boot into standard VGA mode and successfully install the new drivers for your new card.

We've got what we needed, we just wanted the full specification and when it started. To be honest I think that amdchuck is spot on, remove all the drivers , if you have to use a registry scanner to remove traces do so.

CCleaner has a built in registry cleaner.
http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

Then go to ATI's website and download the latest drivers (not do install the drivers from the CD)

if that doesnt work return the offending video card.




can't return it coz i had it given to me off a friend and it was working in his pc
January 5, 2010 5:29:17 PM

urm i ain't 100% sure it was working but all the tests on dxdiag seem 2 be working and if i do need 2 buy a new pc i dunno where 2 buy the spec i need
January 5, 2010 5:31:10 PM

coz it all good buying a £200 to £400 pc if it don't do what i want it 2 do

Ah you are British, makes things easier for recommending components.

£400 can almost build you a proper gaming rig. If you are buying you'll have to spend double that for anything half decent.

The only time a PC does not do what you want is when YOU the customer fail to research. I see it everyday people come here buy computers with crappy video cards (9400GT/9500GT) then complain about its performance. Then I say "did you read the reviews", and they are like "Nope".



gd point tht is what i done with my pc it cost £200 and i regrad gettin it now i have had no end of problem when my gat was out and it is only a year old

Quote:
I can little research was done just by looking at the components, judging from the components (motherboard and processor) its 6 years old or 5 years old upon purchase, even the best computers do not last that long, the PC should of demoted to a back up office rig at best upon purchase.

Edit:

I think the ATI 7000 series came out in 2002, so its an old rig, I think you need a new one really.



can u recermend any where i won't get ripped off again
January 5, 2010 6:09:15 PM

You really should follow the steps to uninstall the ATI software completely from your system. It is quite easy.

http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/737-20561Rem...

I have been through three generations of ATI cards on my current mobo and I can tell you from experience, you need to get all the ATI software out and you need to boot into just the standard VGA mode before you can get the correct drivers installed.

If upon reboot it detects your ATI card and starts installing drivers for it, you did not correctly uninstall all ATI software.
January 5, 2010 6:09:51 PM

Build it yourself? Look & ask around Tom's, it'll really help you build your own rig.
January 5, 2010 6:24:33 PM

Does that ATI Radeon 9600 have a power connector? My old 9700 PRO had a connector same as the one that plugs into a floppy drive. If it does, and you don't have it plugged in, you might not be getting enough power to run games (but windows will load and run fine).

What size is the graphics aperture size set to in the bios? Try 64mb or 128mb.

The 9600 is a 8x video card. Does your motherboard support 4-8x and is it set to either 4 or 8x in the bios?
January 5, 2010 6:28:39 PM

this will be the first time i build from nothing so u could say i know nothing
January 5, 2010 6:30:42 PM

BDDazza's recommendation is pretty good, but that might put you over your budget as he probably wants a new monitor+windows 7.
If the Phenom II X4 is out of your reach get a Phenom II X3 or Athlon II X4. Far Cry 2 runs on Very High on a 4670, so either the 5750/5770 can run it on Ultra High on 1920x1200 easy.

yer i would prob want a 17 inch montier and i don't mind i will carry on using xp
January 5, 2010 6:35:48 PM

Well that'll free up space for a better CPU/GPU. Start looking around UK site's & think of a build.
January 5, 2010 6:41:26 PM

ok and thanks for the tips and sergestion i come back on here if i need anything else got 2 sort out my kids so i be back on 2moz
January 5, 2010 6:43:11 PM

January 6, 2010 10:10:33 AM

has anyone else got any idea y my video card ain't working
January 6, 2010 10:47:43 AM

i see so it ain't worth trying 2 fix it en
January 6, 2010 12:07:25 PM

at the very least you should be following the steps on my last post regarding properly removing all ATI software, rebooting into standard VGA mode only and performing a fresh install of the most current drivers available for that card.

Once again, if upon reboot it detects your ATI card and starts auto installing drivers for anything but a standard VGA adapter, that is going to be a part of the problem.

I can't be any clearer than that and if you have not performed these steps then you are not helping yourself at all.....it's a simple 10-15 minute process.

Have you done that?
January 6, 2010 7:57:10 PM

yeah got it and it is work now sorry i dunno really what went wrong but what u told me 2 do and thanks BDDAZZA and AMDChuck
January 6, 2010 10:23:19 PM

ditto
January 7, 2010 10:24:24 AM

thanks again and i can't belive it was so easy 2 do but it all about learning and listening and trying stuff tht u think tht will never work
January 7, 2010 10:26:31 AM

the only thing is i can't get rid off all the reg etc but will wiping my computerwork just as good
January 7, 2010 12:05:49 PM

a fresh install on a freshly formatted partition is always a good idea but a word of caution....if you have not done it before, there are several pitfalls you may encounter and it may do more harm than good.

If you feel confident in your abilities, then just be sure to burn a CD or thumbdrive with the driver packages you will need to get back up and running....for example, the latest set of drivers for your motherboard, especially if you are using an on board NIC otherwise you might have issues trying to get back on-line.

I actually just reinstalled XP last night as I upgraded my motherboard and trying to get the old motherboard drivers out and the new in was just something I didn't want to deal with so format and reinstall was the call.
January 8, 2010 7:54:33 AM

ah thanks for the info i might upgrade 2 vista
January 8, 2010 10:47:45 AM

Wouldn't bother with Vista, move to Win7. Mostly the same, but two big differences stand out. First, Win7 supports loading more then one display driver. This means you can run an AMD and Nvidia card at the same time. Important if you want to try the hack to run PhysX with your 57xx/58xx. Second, Win7 supports the TRIM command while Vista does not. This is good if you want to use SSD harddrives.
January 8, 2010 1:43:30 PM

i ain't got win 7 yet
January 9, 2010 1:47:46 PM

what do u mean by this

January 9, 2010 1:48:53 PM

ok bddazza shall i upgrade 2 vista with my rig
January 10, 2010 7:12:54 PM

Quote:
No, your rig will run very slow with Vista or Windows 7, these operating systems are very resource intensive (unlike XP). Your best bet is to invest money either into a new computer or research into building your own and putting to gether a cheap yet powerful build and then sticking windows 7 on it. Windows 7 is fast operating system but only when your rig is moderately powerful, I wouldn’t waste time with Vista.


ok thanks again
