It sounds like you need to upgrade your video driver. This is a common problem when computers run off the default Windows driver. Probably best to go to the IBM website and get the latest video driver for your model and follow their instructions.

You may have upgraded windows xp but I think you forgot to upgrade your video driver after this update.

If you can give me the full model of the laptop I can then find the driver for you. Let me know right a way :)

When i scroll it scrolls in horizontal waves down the page. In device manager the graphics card informs me that i have a code 10 and the card does not start up. Do i need to reinstall the drivers?...

I would try an install. The problem you are describing is definitely a video card memory problem.
The scroll is using a lot of memory to refresh and it obviously is not doing that well. This is the most common symptom of video memory without doing really fancy stuff.

The best way is to use a 1/8th" to 1/8th" line-in to connect your audio input and output points on your computer. You will need to have these connected before you open your broadcast console. Alternatively, you can use free programs, such as Soundflower for Macs. If you have a PC, you can set your audio to stereo or wave out mix. To do so, open your volume control, go to 'Options', then to 'Properties', and make sure that 'Wave Out' or 'Stereo Mix' is checked.

When opening web page links it seems that they want to open on screen 2. I usually have this powered off. When, how do I set the web page links to open on screen 1 only. Loc king the taskbar does not seem...

The easiest method to fix this would be to simply go into catalyst control center (or AMD Vision Engine Control Center if you have latest drivers) and disable the second monitor. You don't need to disconnect it physically so all the cables can stay as they are, just disable it and use your computer as you normally would when the second monitor is powered off. Continue to use it this way as long as you like, but I would suggest rebooting the machine at least once before going back to the same place to turn the second monitor back on, and make sure you actually used some web links that previously would have tried to come up on the second monitor.

Once the second monitor is disabled, no matter what software or setting was responsible for causing the links to open on the second screen, the computer will only have one screen available so it will open on the first one. The software or setting should get automatically reset to remember this and a reboot while the second screen is still disabled should ensure that the setting is saved and whatever was making it open on the other screen will be reset to the proper one. Then you can turn the second screen back on whenever you like and leave it on and it should still open links on your main screen just fine.

ATI x600 displaying checkerboard pattern when playing games

Sounds like specific overheating problems that only affect certain game engines or certain functions in them or is may be memory leak that only happens when computer has been running programs for a period of time.

No One Lives Forever uses Lithtech 2.0: Talon engine, however it was later revised to Lithtech 2.2 whose fixes were included in the latest NOLF patch. Make sure you have the latest patch for NOLF.

Freedom Force uses NetImmerse engine.
If possible try if you have same issues with another games with old NetImmerse engine. See list here:

Far Cry uses CryENGINE. Far Cry was actually developed by Crytek as a technology demo for Nvidia display adapters and when the company saw its potential, it was turned into a game. As a conclusion I would say this game is very likely optimized for Nvidia display adapters and issues may be because of ATI display adapter drivers.

If nothing else helps try somewhere with nVidia. ATI has a lot of issues with old games released before or near year 2000, because of its drivers and they do not seem to correct driver issues on old games. When looking nVidia driver release notes you find more often game specific corrections or maybe they just document them better.

Problem with image display on monitor

That should fit the bill you're asking for. However, your current video card should definitely support 1024x768 fully, even at high hz refresh rates (assuming you are using a CRT). The "waves" may be caused by your video card, but it's really hard to say.

If you have more money, I would recommend this card, as it has a higher price/performance ratio:

That is probably going to be the last high-performance AGP card ever produced, as the AGP bus has been discontinued now for some time. You may need a higher-end Power Supply, however. Good luck!

Hi, I think you will need to run the Dell restore disk, install the orriginal drivers and use the dell system to bootup then load the drivers the ASUS drivers then close the system, install the new card and then bootup. on doing this there will be resident drivers for the new card and it should work fine, then delete the orriginal drivers.
