If you are experiencing "spots" on the screen, then there are two possibilities.  First, you may have improper drivers installed for your video card.  Please check the ATI website for the latest drivers for your video card.  If this does not correct the problem then it is quite possible that your adapter or the connection on the video card is physically damaged.  Try another adapter.  If this does not solve the problem I would recommend a new video card or having your current X series looked at by ATI.

    P.S.  Make sure your video card is completely plugged into the AGP socket on your motherboard.

Old drivers on xp sp3 cause blue screen and windows crashes all the time. It also gives the error stating ATI control panel.exe ended unexpectedly and get a 600x400 graphics. Nees the latest drivers...


Go to the AMD website (they bought ATI) and surf for the video/drivers page for the downloads. Also, dig deep on the page and go through all the known issues section - ATI does an excellent job of documenting when a computer/software/graphics combination has a problem.

Also check the Tosiba website for the same information- manufacturers often post "patches" for known problems.

Good Luck!

Crashes after playing a game for about 10 minutes


Hi samohtpfeffe, i've been having the exact same problem. reason why your video card crashes because its over heating, fan not spinning ? Did you try to remove old video driver and install latest driver ?

What Game are you playing ,at the moment? Because this video card is about over 4 years old, really can't handle newest games properly.

Good Luck!

I installed a Radeon X1650 card and having problems


Try the old card & see what happens. If it still does it the monitor is bad. If not make sure to remove the old driver first & then install the new card. Then install the new driver. Should work,if not,then the card may be defective. ATI is kinda common to have a bad one right out of the box.

Flatscreen goes blank and displays the message


Out of range indicates that the refresh rate or resolution is set too high for the monitor to display. I would suggest re booting into safe mode by pressing F8 during boot, before windows begins to load. Select safe mode with networking if you can, and once in safe mode, uninstall the ati display driver from the control panel. Then go to ATI's site and download the latest driver for your card. Save that file to your desktop. Reboot normally, as Windows should load default vga drivers for your card. Once in Windows, install the latest driver you just downloaded. That should reset the resoultion to one that your monitor can display. Good luck:)

ATI RADEON X1650 Pro Problem


The graphics card might not be working in sync with your processor. Get it checked WHY this is happening. Probably a faulty connection somewhere. See if you can find one before getting it checked.

Screen going blank for a second or two while video freezes then jumps.


If you have on board graphics try removing video card and reboot when computer rebooted turn it of and refit card and restart when restarted computer should recognize new hard ware and should find the already installed drivers if not try installing drivers again
Sometimes windows does not recognize new hardware until its refitted
had this problem with modems alot and the above method solved it
