Question about ATI RADEON® 9600 Pro, (256 MB) AGP Graphic Card

1 Answer

Bad fps I recently had a hd crash & had to buy a new one & re-install XP Pro. I updated to the newest drivers & ccc software. Now when I run games, I get less than 20 fps where i used to get 30-50. Any ideas on how to get me back up to speed?

    Pasha -



    Sorry its taken me so long to respond. Thanks for your suggestions. I downloaded that software & driver the day I got the machine back up & running. Truth is, I think it ran better with the old driver. Or maybe there is something else choking my system that I can't seem to find. I was also having trouble with my sound card - so I got a new one; because using the on-board sound was killing the cpu so my fps was really low. With the new sound card, I get generally 20-30 fps stable while playing AA. 20, if I have skype running in the backgroung, 30+ if I don't. I used to be able to run skype, teamspeak, ventrillo & play AA with 40-50 fps on the same system. Nothing hardward-wise has changed except the new hard drive & now new sound card. It doesn't make any sense!



    Still frustrated,

    Widowmaker

Please when I ask questions below it is not a reflection on you. I cannot see what is readily apparent to you with the information, hardware, etc before you. So I either need to inform you enough to make a reasonable decision or to be able to ask a question with enough detail I can provide a reliable answer.

If this video card was factory original equipment I tend to prefer to go to the computer manufacturer's site to get the drivers, etc. For other drivers you need you may want to do the same. If you need assistance please provide the manufacturer and model of your computer and I will assist in finding a site to download those drivers for you, if available and most are.

You imay need to dpwnload the appropriate software. The link to Windows XP on the AMD/ATI suite i used indicates a suite providing two drivers and a software application -- did you download the entire package. Did you download it from AMD/ATI requesting the proper Operating Systembad fps - 1.gif? Link below

This is the link I got based on what you provided

If you agree download option 1

Follow the directions for installation higher on the page selected for the page I found these are the instructions.

If you cannot resolve the issue with the above information or need assistance please add a comment to this problem. Describe what worked and what did not and the additional information requested and I will attempt to provide additional information and steps to resolve this issue.

Computer restarts on game start


Remove all traces of ATI drivers from add/remove programs and reboot before trying to install the newest Catalyst Control Center. The latest - 9.4 - does NOT have your card listed (they list the PCIe version, not AGP).

Recently ATI removed support for many of their "legacy" cards. 9.3 may be of more use to you.

Windows 2000 runs best on the s353. I have tried running Windows XP on it, but ran into driver issues (Toshiba never released XP drivers) and there's not enough memory (I also have 256MB).
I doubt it's even possible to install Vista on that computer.

If you're running Windows XP, you could just work with it, you could upgrade the memory, or you could back up all your data, reformat, and install 2000. Note that I do not recommend Windows ME, and that I've had issues running Windows 98 on mine.

If your computer is running an old version of windows but it's an old installation and you've not maintained it, you might just need to run a CCleaner scan, defragment your hard drive, and disable any software that's running in the background and doesn't need to be (but don't disable your antivirus :P)

Blue screen (not OD) random video game crash


What I would do is do a clean run over to the videocard.

1. Reseat videocard in pc. (take out and put back in expansion slot)
2. Delete all drivers by doing this... device manager....properties....drivers....delete card from pc.
3. Redownload newest drivers.

If that doesnt work, try updating direct X from microsofts website. Just search Direct X update.
Hope this helps, if ya need more assistance on the issue just let me know.

Sapphire HD 2600 XT Driver Problems


Just because you have a new video card with CD drivers does not mean the drivers are the latest. Go to Saffhire directly & download the latest driver software for you're card.
http://www.sapphiretech.com/us/support/drivers.php

Uninstall any older driver software before installing newer. Try not to restart the system between installs.
And update windows before you install the new drivers. You do not need to install WinXP SP3. Unless you want too.

Good luck!

How to make use of 2 DVI outputs on Sapphire Radeon X800 GTO2 Graphics card


You need ATIs Catalyst Software to run dual monitors. Just installing the drivers is not enough. There is a bummer part of all this. Before you install the latest driver/Catalyst Crontrol Center, you will have to uninstall your current X800 software through Control Panel. If it fail to uninstall you will need to use ATIs uninstall software called: cat-uninstaller.exe. The first link below.
When you have the new CCC & driver installed you'll need to setup your dual monitors within the Catalyst Control Center. K
Uninstaller: http://searchna.ati.com/promosearch/?site=us-en&la=en&qt=cat-uninstaller&selectsite=ATI&sp_a=sp10039240&sp_p=all&sp-x-1=col&sp_f=ISO-8859-1&sp_q=cat-uninstaller&Search.x=9&Search.y=8

1 last item. Please make sure your operating system is updated. ATI wants you to have .Net framework 2.0 installed before you install the driver package.

Sapphire HD 2600 XT Driver Problems


To get your drivers follow these simply steps below:

First go to this website "CLICK HERE" - once you've done that fill in all the details of your "Graphics Card" then download them.

After you've completed the installation restart your computer just to make everything work correctly.


Note: after you've installed the driver your resolution when you've restarted your computer will be diffrenrent and may need changing.
Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in someway. Further problems of any kind just leave a message on here and i will get back to you a.s.a.p.
