Ati Card problem

I recently had a computer won't load problem on here and this is what happened, the computer is loading now but I do have a new problem: OK i replaced the cmos battery, removed and reseated the video card and gave it and the inside of my computer a good clean out with compressed air, checked all points, put it back together and it booted up, not sure what it was and somehow I don't think this will be the end of it, but it is working. The only problem is when it booted up it came up with "The ATI Control Panel Failed to initiatize because no ATI driver is installed or ATI Driver is not working properly" So I am now looking for a driver to download, I dont know whether it is because of the driver but the screen when you get to a page where you need to move the page up or down, when you do it becomes quite wavy, a wave affect sort of of the page, bit hard to explain.

Ok another problem I think, I got the ATI graphics card from the ATI website, I downloaded the right model and when I went to install it this is what happened: Warning: Setup was unable to find components that can be installed on your current hardware or software configuration. Please make sure you have the required hardware or software". So I don't have a clue what is wrong now, maybe it was my graphics card all along........When I bought the computer the graphics card was already on the computer so I don't have a disk or anything to reload either, any suggestions of what all this means and what I should do. It is a ATI Radeon 9800 series graphics card (AGP).

Personally, I would replace the video card as it sounds like it is not working properly. However, it could be that it is not seated correctly. Turn off the computer, unplug it, pull out the video card and then put it back in. Make sure it goes in firmly but don't force it. If the problem persists, go to the control panel > Add remove software> and remove any ati software. Once complete reboot the computer and try installing the latest driver package from ATI again.

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!

Installed new video card, system reboots

your current graphics card settings is not set to the correct level to match your system, you can download ATI Catalyst software from this link:

after installing, you may have to restart your computer. when you restart, right click on the desktop and select (ATI catalyst), there you can adjust your graphic card features or you can use the recommended settings the software have adjusted for your graphic card by clicking on restore settings/defaults.

you should not encounter problems once you have installed the ATI software.

I'm afraid your video card may be faulty.
I myself have an ATI and Corsair build. Installed without a hitch.
You'll need to replace the card. Good thing it is new.
If you haven't, buy some fans for your system as well and install them on your casing. That card runs hot. I have 5x120mm fans in my desktop and it keeps my system nice and cool when I run Crysis or Fallout 3.
But yeah, don't try and fiddle with that card anymore. Put it back in the box and replace it.

Please rate if this was helpful, or comment if you'd like further assistance. Have a good week!

Blank screen after boot up

Remove the card, plug into your built-in card. Start your PC in safe mode. Uninstall all ATI software and delete the card from Device Manager. Restart. Reinstall the ATI drivers. Power down. Install the card and connect your monitor to it. The OS will find the card in default mode - let it. Restart. When it comes back up, you will be able to select the full range of operating modes.

No display on my monitor only after first boot

This is a problem with the handshake of the two hardwares so first of all update your bios from your manufacturer's website and then update your graphics card drivers

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).
For Vista 64-Bit Edition Radeon 2400 Series (PCI-e).

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.
