I recently reformatted my computer and I installed the drivers for my video card ATI 1600 Pro. Everything was working flawlessly every website I would visit would run perfect. Then I decided to upgrade the drivers to the newest ones. Ever since I have done that myspace, xbox.com and many other websites lag my computer and browser and it was ever since I upgraded the drivers. Is there a way I can update my motherboard to support the video card better? My Bios for the Motherboard is 1013. I tried uninstalling the drives and using Driver Cleaner pro to completely wipe out the ATI drivers and reinstall the new one but it didn't help out at all. Still chopy and sluggish.

You can go directly to the ATI website and download the catalyst driver. This will give you the most up to date driver available. If you get a message saying "your model computer must be updated from the manufacturer" you should go to your computer manufacturers website and install the video driver from there. Please provide your computer model for further support.
If you have the latest drivers installed, try uninstalling them, and going back to the 2nd most recent driver released. Sometimes the latest drivers have issues. Work your way back trying multiple drivers if possible until you find the sweet spot. You might try this website, it has a driver cleaner that removes old drivers. Then try reinstalling the driver of your choice. http://www.afterdawn.com/software/desktop_software/other_tools/driver_cleaner_pro.cfm
AGP is a bit old for win7, i'd drop it. that said, if the ati
card is an addin perhaps your onboard (via) chip is causing the
problem. turn it off in your bios so that the install never even
detects it and use drivers from ati.
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.
has recently written some better drivers for the 2400 Pro AGP cards,...Make sure the setting in the BIOS for the motherboard is set to the AGP or PCI for primary video.
For AGP, make sure that you have the power from the power supply connected to the video card. Make sure that your motherboard does support 8X AGP video cards. If you are not sure, please check with motherboard manufacturer for compatibility.
To get your drivers follow these simply steps below:
First go to this website "CLICK HERE" - once
you've done that fill in all the details of your "Graphics Card" then
After you've completed the installation restart your computer
just to make everything work correctly.
Note: after you've installed the driver your resolution when you've restarted your computer will be diffrenrent and may need changing.
Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in someway. Further problems of any kind just leave a message on here and i will get back to you a.s.a.p.
You must uninstall the current driver and reinstall the driver for the 9800 Pro first: http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html Power supply recommended is 300watt for each, so that is not a factor. It would have to be a driver conflict.
