I have a video card radeon hd 2400 series for vista 64 bit compatibility, will it work on xp 32? what can i do to make it work?


Hi There,
Yes it will work with Windows XP operating system.
1. If you're going to change the Vista operating system to WIN XP 32bit, you have to find WIN XP 32bit drivers for *********** board as well as the HD2400. Install Xp 32 bit
2. For HD 2400 drivers just click the link. ATI The link includes Catalyst, OpenCL and Display drivers.
3. Wait for the download to finish, Run the 32bit display driver and follow onscreen messages reboot if prompted.

A. If you're going to use it in another machine just download the display driver and attach the graphic card.

Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

How can i run my program on tv out which is running on my pc same to same as powerpoint show and tv play both at time.??


I assume you already have a cable (s-video) connecting your tv to the video card, on windows video settings you can select the clone mode that mode make the both screen display the same. on windows xp use right click on the screen select proprieties and on the last tab set the desire configuration you can extend or clone, use clone. on windows vista or 7 just use the shortcut WIN + P and use the duplicate mode.
For that normally you but boot your pc wit the video cable already connected.
After doing all you can set the proper resolution and configuration of the additional screen on the display properties.

The Pinnacle Studio which worked on Windows XP does not work on Window 7. What upgrade software should i get?


I think the best option for you is to Upgrade to Pinnacle Studio 14 which is $0, or Pinnacle Studio 14 Ultimate, which costs $70. An upgrade is cheaper than buying the entire version which will cost you about $130. The upgrade will work with Windows 7, Windows Vista (SP2), Windows XP (SP3).

On the other hand, if a program cannot be run under Windows 7 because of compatibility issues, you can right click on the executable file that will start the application and click Properties. Select Compatibility tab and check the Windows version you know the program worked with before. This will make it run as if it was running in Windows XP. You can find more about this Compatibility issue on Microsoft website: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows-vista/Make-older-programs-run-in-this-version-of-Windows

RADEON 7500 AGP Graphic Card: just reformatted my old dell optiplex gx260 and i ...


You can try reinstalling the firmware for the video card, but if that doesn't work your video card is probably dead and you'll need a new video card. The firmware is what controls the video card, so if the computer shut off while the firmware was in the process of being rewritten, there's a good chance some of the code needed to run the card got erased or scrambled.

Need drivers


For this video card you can get the driver for win 98, me, or xp from here:
http://www.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDHomePage.aspx
on right side, download drivers, choose from drop lists:
component cathegory: graphics operating system: xp -- or -- win 98, me product line: radeon product model: radeon 9250 series
then press on view results and you will get a new page with the download link for
catalyst software suite x.xx

No drivers needed for Windows vista or windows 7. Since this is and old card it is not directly supported from manufacturer, but ussually vista or win7 will install automatically a generic driver that allows you to use the card. Might need to change resolution and color dept after installing on vista or win7.
Good luck on setting up your card!!

Problem installing ATI Radeon X1300 256mb in Dell Optiplex GX260


Hi edward,
I'm looking at the specs of your dell and of the video adapter.
It appears the Power Supply in your dell may to under powered for the video card.
According to dell's website the largest psu that ships with that unit is 250 watts while the radeon x1300 needs a minimum of 250 watts to run and assuming you have the 250 watt version you need to take into consideration that the psu is also powering your CPU, memory,fans,hard drive/s and other components on in your system so 250watts just isn't enough.
You may want to contact dell and see if there is a larger psu that you can purchase. I would recommend one at least in the 400 watt range.
I hope you get it straightened out I certainly know how frustrating it can be to not be able to use new hardware.
Let me know how it works out.

Poor Resolution on Monitor 2


what u can do is.... 1) Backup your Registry first

2) go to Regedit....Start>Run>Regedit
(this is assuming u have latest Nvidia driver's installed)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/NVIDIA Corp/Global
In global. Make a new KEY called NVTWEAK
In this key, make a new DWORD value called Coolbits now, change the value of coolbits to 3.
Now when you do into Settings for GFX and advanced settings....you will notice a CLOCK SPEED/FREQUENCY tab. Change them.....go up like 20mhz....or 30 or 50...too high will screw ur card...too low isn't worth the trouble.
So, slowly go up little by little until you notice s--- on ur screen that's dodgy..then just fall back behind that Freq.
Also....another fan taking heat AWAY from the GFX card wouldn't do any harm either.

Don't forget to rate this solution.

Graphic Processor Upgrade


Try to install the latest drivers here: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=N&ProductID=2876&DwnldID=14386&strOSs=44&OSFullName=Windows*%20XP%20Professional&lang=eng

And attempt to use the intel application in the system tray to configure the resolution, not the windows display utility.
