ATI not ATI help

Hello... I have a problem. my ATI x800 GTO shows as Nvidia 6xxx series (It even shows Nvidia when i power up my computer). I think it has to do something with firmware of my graphic card. Can you help me out? Should i install Firmware of ATI (Link would be apriciated). or something else

    Currently i don't have drivers installed for my graphic card.
    And forgot the manufacturer its XpertVision ATI x800 GTO.

    And also i tried manually to install drivers, but they doesn't recognize them. But it shows Nvidia as recommended.
  2. Download the latest drivers from AMD's website
    www.amd.com and it should work fine.
  3. It seems that Nvidia is not for your graphics card. It is your motherboard's controller chipset.

    Install the chipset drivers first for your motherboard and then install the gfx card drivers.

    You should also change your topic title to " To be Ati or not to be Ati "

    I think its not the chipset.. Every time that i try to install new/old Ati driver an error appears during the installation, when i restart the computer, it displays "found new hardware vga etc."
  6. What exactly is the error ?? and are you trying to install them from an Admin account (in order to install video card drivers you need to have permissions to access them).
  7. It says: warning, setup was unable to find components that can be installed on your current hardware or software config. Please make sure you have the required soft or hardware.

    Now the reason im getting this is because my computer is reading Nvidia, but i have Ati graphic card. Even before the bios starts to load my windows, on the upper left corner displays Nvidia geforce 6600, also on the hardware device manager the same thing.
  8. Download Driver sweeper - install it and run it and have it remove both Nvidia and ATI drivers (you currently are running generic VGA drivers from MS so just have it remove both !) -- then reboot and try to install the ATI drivers again and see if that gets past the error.
  9. Okay I did that now, nothing happened sadly =/ same thing as before :(
  10. I think its not in the drivers, maybe the problem is in bios from the graphic card. i rly dunno what else it can be...

    I would show you Nvidia is the controller chip of your motherboard. But the portion of the system information showing the Nvidia controller ( your second post below the original ) was edited by mousemonkey. The Nvidia name is now gone.

    Nope - It is the dtivers -- now that you posted the video card that you are actually using -- It is an older AGP video card that ATI has stopped supporting in newer drivers -- you'll need to get a copy of the legacy drivers that support your card (this is why it is saying you do not have a supported card - since the model has been removed from the list of ATI cards in the new driver versions !!

    According to ATI the latest set of drivers supporting your card is 10.2 -- you can download them HERE

    Download that set of drivers - rerun the Driver sweeper program (just in case any parts did get installed that might cause problems with the new install) - reboot and then try installing them and it should work (Note : since it is an older AGP video card ATI has removed support for it in the newer driver versions since some features of the new drivers wil not work on your card so you need to use one of the older versions that did work with the card - and since support has been stopped when you try to install a new version it will think you do no have a supported video card and will refuse to install the newer drivers - which is the problem you are having !
  13. You were wrong, i reinstalled windows in hope that will fix all my problems AND installed the drivers from ATI that i have got with my graphic card but still it DIDN'T WORK. And now i installed Nvidia 6100 drivers while i have ATI x800 (Because Video Card Bios SAYS i HAVE GEFORCE 6100 and i have checked and its ATI [drivers before this happened where ATI]).. and everything is slowed down working as 6100 not X800....

    AND the BIOS check when i power up computer for graphic card says:

    GEFORCE 6100
    Engineering release not for production use


    Do you know where i can find BIOS for my card XpertVision ATI x800 gto?
  14. Integrated 6150, or it's reading as a 6100 gpu?
    Can you go in the bios, you may need to disable the integrated graphics card for the x800.
  15. Just curious, Razielko. Is the 6-pin power cable connected to your graphics card?
