Graphics card crashes system. Tried most things recommended. MOBO is Albatron pm255a pro, it seems to automatically switch to the new graphics card. There seems to be no way to directly disable the onboard graphics card on the BIOS.

Re: ATI graphics card 9600XT crashes system
Ok, If you havnt already (since putting the new card in) Reinstall Direct-X 9 onto your system, then retry the Catalyst drivers.
If this fails, then the next time you boot, go in through safe mode, goto Start - Search For Files And Folders
When the search window pops up, under the search box is an advanced search. Tick "Search Hidden & System Files & Folders"
Do a search for "CCC.exe" and delete all found.
The Catalyst Control Centre (CCC) causes alot of issues for alot of people for no reason. But if that can be isolated it will help.

I wouldnt know whether you just like ATI Graphics cards, or it was recommended for you. But I would still give you my straight forward advice, and this is : Go for NVIDIA Ge-FORCE graphics cards. Trust me, you would thank me for it later. I didnt want to recommend a specific model for you though, because of our difference in country locations, but just try and get a high memory (like 256MB and above), NVidia Graphics card that is compatible with your system. Also check out the available slot on your system that you will use for it first before you go (So that you wont go and get an AGP slot card when you have just an open PCI Slot). I'm telling you this because I've used A LOT of graphics cards also (Over 10 years now)! and I've come to that conclusion that NVIDIA makes the best graphics card. Hope this helps you out. Goodluck!
Some motherboards require a separate AGP port driver to be installed before the drivers of the AGP video card could be recognized. This is specially so for 8X. Perhaps the solution requires that you install the complete motherboard drivers including the AGP port before installing the ATI 9600XT drivers.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
Try this, I just tested (2 days ago) an Albatron that arrived here with a 9800pro, crashing everytime they tried to play games.
I installed the latest drivers etc that "should" have resolved the issues...It made it worse. Updated everything including the chipset etc.
After driving myself crazy for several hours I installed the Catalyst 7.3 drivers... Away it went fine, tried the 7.4 (same problems as before), back to 7.3 and fine again.
So with Albatron boards and ATI cards, try the Catalyst 7.3 driver located <HERE>
