Just upgraded from win2000 to xp, and my all in wonder card
does not have full functionality, the TV tab (and most other
previous tabs) is missing in the desktop settings/advanced
property sheet. Basically, I can't switch TV on and off,
and also the brighness of the monitor cannot be accessed
any more. Any ideas?

Hi

Have you downloaded/installed the latest XP compliant drivers for your card?

Have you been to ATI's site? Have you looked for XP drivers and programs,
and installed them?

No, because XP comes with the drivers.

To use the TV feature, you need to install the most up to date drivers from
ATi. The ones included in XP are "VERY" basic and do not provide all the
features (3D, hi-res, TV out) functions.

XP may include video drivers but not the other ones. If you want it to work
go and look.

Get Everest Home Edition and use it to get the "Exact" video
card/chip that's on your PC. When Everest runs expand the
Computer category, then Summary. In the Left pane note the
Display category and the "Video Adapter" description. Post
back that information and we can direct you to the download
for your specific video adapter.

Natalie,

All ATI Radeon based cards use a driver/support package called
Catalyst (5.7 is the latest). ATI offers a number of packages. One
thing you probably need is the "Uninstaller". I would download the
Uninstaller and the complete 33.0 Megabyte driver/support tools.
Use the Uninstaller to completely remove existing ATI Drivers and
support software (Control Panel). Then install Catalyst 5.7.
See if that won't resolve your issues.

Download for ATI Catalyst is found at:
https://support.ati.com/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=...

Yes, it solved the problem.

What should I use to make the screen brighter, an alpha adjustment, or
brightness adjustment, they both seem to be doing the same thing.

Depends on your monitor, is it a traditional CRT or LCD ?

If it's LCD, you need to be using Clear Type rendering.

Also many LCD monitors have an adjustment tool that
fine tunes the video to the monitor. On my Sony LCD I
have it fine tuned and any Gamma corrections I make w/
the Video Card advanced features tool.

Xp tends to use a "Plug-&-Play" monitor definition (driver).
To more accurately define your monitor, you should go to
the vendor web site and download the specific driver for
your monitor and also check for a Adjustment software
tool.

If you're using a CRT, then increasing the refresh rate to
75-85 Hertz will be easier on the eye.
