Re: bad fps

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 System1.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.

Installed my VisionTek HD 5570 in my fairly new HP Windows 7 PC. Using DVI connection, the Starting Windows logo comes on, but then locks. I can hear the system continue to boot, but don't know why it's...


I recommend that try to download the updated driver for the Video Card because I've encountered that kind of problem with my Sapphire ATI Radeon 6870, I've just downloaded the updated driver through the ATI website.

Hope I've help you somehow. =)

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.

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 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.

ATI Mobility Radeon X600 continuing problem

Hi eltrury,
Here is a link to explain Modding.
You're notebook share's you're main system memory with you're onboard (Video card built into you're notebook's main board).
If you're notebook has a total amount of system memory of 512MB & you're video card is using 128MB to function. Than you're notebook will only have 128MB to run. (And that is not enough for a Windows XP system to function. It will run! Like a dog with two broken legs. You're video card is an ATI. That said, ATI comes out with newer versions of its software drivers quiet often. So upgrading you're software can be preformed once a month, if you like. ATI's catalyst control center is part of the ATI's software. CCC is a section of software where you can adjust a range of settings to you're preference. Like add more red color to your monitor. Adjust you're display screen. It's a long list. There is a Help button within CCC.
Most people never need to enter CCC. It's for people who know what to adjust & why. CCC's greatest function allows people to run dual monitors. CCC can detect when two monitors are connected to the video card & the user can adjust the color for each display separately. CCC is also acts like a software manager. It helps keep the video running stable. For those who do not have an abundence of hard drive space you can elect not to install CCC & just download the driver software.
This next link will take you to ATI's web site.
Here you need to click on three choices. In the first window you would click on you're operating system. EX: Windows XP home or pro. Than you would click on ATI Mobility Radeon. Than click on, Mobility Radeon X600. Lastly, click on the GO button.
Suggest you run the Installation Verification Software on the site. When it finishes the ATI software should start the download.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

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.

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
Radeon X800 Driver/CCC software:
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.
