i think there is something wrong with my video card i have a radeon X1300 pro and recently i havnt been bale to play on any games which i used to be able to do ( when i go on any game it works for a bit then the screen blacks out then i get diffrent coulor zigzags across my screen). when i open counter strike i get a message saying my driver is outdated i go onto the AMD page and search for my driver updates but they have stopped making them and i cant find any driver downloads all there is a cataylst control center, which does nothing and when i click the check updates button i just get the internet page saying that no updates can be found and i need to download cataylst control center.

It has been relegated to legacy status. Follow the menu, go to the page it selects and scroll down. The whole driver suite is close to 70 megs.

Hi, you need the Catalyst Software Suite. Download it and install.
