2 Gb of RAM, graphics card shows to be running correctly, all graphics are sluggish and slow since I replaced the onboard graphics with the Radeon x1300. Performance rating dropped from 3.1 to 2.4 then back up to 2.8 after I removed some things and lightened the start up program list. I have disabled the original driver for the onboard graphics, installed the x1300 correctly (as far as I can tell), and have upgraded it as necessary (I think). What do I do now? Please help.

Download the unified Radeon drivers from ATI's website... do not use Windows update. Get the Drivers Only package. for Vista 32-bit
If you can get to the desktop: Uninstall the existing display drivers by using the remove hardware utility. Whatever they are... remove them. Reboot. Windows will try to reinstall the drivers on the next boot. If it allows you cancel the installation at any time during install do it. Run the downloaded package from ATI. Reboot.
If you can't get to the desktop: Press F8 when booting and enter safe mode with networking. Download the ATI drivers from ati.com for Vista 32-bit. Uninstall the display drivers. Reboot. Should take you to the desktop on the next boot so you can run the install program.
Here is where you can get your driver. It's for WinXP but you can get the one for Vista if you need. Didn't know if you wanted the software suite that goes along with it but that can be downloaded from same page as well. Enjoy! If this fixes your prob, please rate me a big 4 fix ya. Thanks.
