WOW and Radeon x600

World of Warcraft used to work fine on my pc until I installed the udated graphics drivers. Now it crashes WOW and sometimes my pc after no more than 10 minutes.

I have a Dell 5510 with XP Pro and an ATI Radeon X600 256mb graphics card. I had updated to the current drivers 7.11 with the Catalyst. I tried rolling back to the 7.7 driver with and without the Catalyst. Nothing works.

Help please

Re: WOW and Radeon x600

Well, WOW can be fix, but I suggest, that you uninstall ALL video drivers on device manager FROM SAVE MODE. then startup your PC on normal mode, it will tell that install the video drivers, at this point, disable your Antivirus, and Install ONLY the version (original) that came with your video card. Then fire up the WOW. it SHOULD fix the problem.

your computer simply may not be able to play world of warcraft anymore. you may need to splurge and buy a more game-intensive computer, or upgrade the video card. good brands to look for are anything ati and nvidia.

It is lagging for certain games like World of Warcraft. I checked bios, and in only allow for 8 mb of the CPU to go to it. How do I allow more ram to be used?

It configures the system memory allocation reserved for the integrated video controller. Settings are 1MB and 8MB. The most effective solution is disable onboard video and put any Radeon 8 series with 256 or 512 MB RAM, they are cheap now and WOW will be fine, I confirm because use the Radeon 8600 512 MB card. Your computer has PCI Express slot and any Radeon fits perfectly onto it. Good luck!

I need to download ATI Display drivers for my Toshiba tecra S211 but i m not getting it on the net

ATI uses drivers called Catalyst Drivers. The ATI card you have is the ATI Mobility Radeon X600. Go to this link;

Select your Vista or XP or whatever your Operating System is from the first list. Then in the second list, select mobiltiy radeon. Then Mobility Radeon X600 from the third list. Then click GO.

Then on the next page use the installation verification software. Once it verifys your hardware is compatible with the driver, it should download and install it.

Yellow question on sm bus controller, pci device and video controller

For Emachines W3503, download the chipset drivers for ATI Radeon® Xpress 200 at which provides all drivers for this model of computer.

This resolves Sm Bus Controller driver problem.

Also a good tool can be driver detective for emachines

If you are recieving "Error 22: A critical error has occurred while initializing DirectDraw." while trying to play Diablo 2, Warcraft III, or World of Warcraft, it is because direct draw has been disabled. I reenabled mine by installing the catalyst at for Windows XP Media Center Edition - Radeon - Radeon X300 Series.. Then use the Catalyst Control Center to renable DirectDraw.

Lost resolution windows vista upgrade on GX260

Hi all,

I tried numerous solutions for this issue and none of them worked except this one. I tested it with Vista Ultimate and don’t know if other Vista versions have the same drivers but here’s what worked for me:

1. Right click ‘Computer’ then left click ‘Properties’ to open up System window.
2. Click ‘Device Manager’
3. Click ‘+’ on ‘Display Adapters’ and you should see the drivers for your video. Right click and select ‘Update Driver Software...’
4. Select ‘Browse my computer for driver software’ and click ‘next’.
5. Click ‘Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer’
6. Untick ‘Show compatible hardware’
7. Select ‘Intel Corporation’ then select ‘Intel 82865G’. Click next.

This will install the drivers. No they are not the same drivers for the hardware but they work a treat!

I have a game called world of warcraft when i put the disc in nothing happens you need 20g and i have 37g wats the problem.

Go to "my computer"
In there you will see an icon at the cd-rom drive for WOW.
(WOW = World of Warcraft)
Double click on that Icon
This will start the installer.
If you do not see an icon take out the CD and clean the drive and look at the CD or significant scratches. Little ones are okay.
