It's part of your windows system, i think you are using Windows XP SP2 Edition. And your DirectX is 9.0 or 10.0 version.

This Graphics design is have a hidden memory or times two capacity to run in your system. It will activate when you are installing Microsoft.net framework 2.0 or 3.0 (dotnefx).

Don't worry much better that this VGA card help you a lot driving some programs or games that are using high resolution.

Hope this info might help you a lot.

Good luck!

There have been some problems with downloading Windows 7 and graphics cards. I went to Diamonds website and, I don't see anything for Windows 7 so, what I suggest you do is uninstall your AMD software and reinstall at AMD's website. Go to your programs and featuers and right click on ATI Catalyst install manager. Right click on that and click next in window taht comes up. You will get a window with selections. Chek the box next to Express uninstall remove all ATI software and click next. Allow and click next, etc. till finished. Then, if not prompted, restart. When your system comes back up, go back to device manager and make sure all ATI is uninstalled. There might be a catalyst 2, etc. Go to AMD's website;

Diamond Radeon HD3870, 512MB DDR4


According to ATI this is a known issue. They refer problems to microsoft about this error as they say it is an o/s issue. Microsoft refers you back to ATI saying it is a thermal issue. I have an ATI card as well & have the same problem. Hopefully the next driver will fix this issue when released. Hope this helps.

Graphics Card ati radeon 2400 pro


Hi winklewee, please let me know if this video card is for a notebook or desktop PC? It would also help if you list the amount of memory on the card & type of memory.
You should update the Radeon card regardless of my request above. Click this link I have posted below for a desktop PC.
Uninstall any older drivers before installing the newer drivers. ATI/AMD come's out with new drivers quit often.
For Vista 32-Bit Edition Radeon 2400 Series (PCI-e).
http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=vista32/common-vista32
For Vista 64-Bit Edition Radeon 2400 Series (PCI-e).
http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=vista64/common-vista64

Try the new software first & see if Vista improves. If not think about either increasing you're system memory or increasing the memory size of a new video card.

Good Luck!
Please post the results from the updated software from ATI.
Mike
