Did you use the Catalyst Uninstaller to remove the old drivers before installing the new ones?

Nope, the Catalyst Uninstaller is available at the ATI site where you downloaded the drivers from. See my explanation after the links.

This is the link for the Catalyst Drivers for Windows XP: https://support.ati.com/ics/support/default...ge&folderID=293
Under the NOTES section of this page is where the Catalyst Uninstaller link is.

For your convenience (?sp), here's the link for the direct download of the Catalyst Uninstaller: http://support.ati.com/ics/support/DLRedir...=737&deptID=894

Explanation:

The video drivers are a crucial part of your system - yet they're not protected like the Windows System Files are. Consequently, they can become corrupted by other programs that change the files in a way that doesn't let them work right.

As a convenience (?sp), the driver is designed to leave some stuff on the system when you uninstall it. It helps to retain some of your video settings when you install a newer version of the video drivers.

Now, if there is corruption in one of the files that isn't removed you can still have problems with your video. If that's the case, then you'll need a special uninstaller to remove all traces of the driver. ATI offers this tool *the Catalyst Uninstaller) for that purpose.

PS - No, I don't trust the Spell Checker - and I'm still unsure about how to spell "convenience" :thumbsup:

Sounds like overheating, what is the temperature of the card?

I'm not familiar with ATI cards - but it should be in the ATI tools or control center.

When was the last time that the case was cleaned out?
