Hi all, i have a problem with my ati radeon 9200 series graphics card. The problem has got so bad now that i cannot play on wow only really use msn and if im lucky search the web. I would like to reformat but unfortunaltely the original installation driver cd has been damaged and i cannot find the original driver on the ati site. I have checked in my devices and it appears i have 2 grapics installed one running as secondary both 9200 i dont know how i have managed to do this to be honest can anyone help if i have made any sense? I'm running on xp home. Thanks in advance

Here's the newest ATi driver that supports the 9200 series. See if that helps. You don't have two graphic cards installed, the second in the display settigns is like a backup setting on the card. I think?

Could you explain what exactly the problem looks like, why can't you get on MSN sometimes, does WoW Lag, or play choppy? Does your backround look...normal, or is it blurry and there's any aftifacts ( Aftifacts are random bloches, that can occur when doing something, usualy it happens when the card isn't working properly, or when it's overclocked to much) If only MSN and WoW aren't working, it could be a network problem.

Hi and thanks for your response. I will try the new driver hopefully it will help. The problem was with when i have any application open it would be slow to load up and if i moved it i had white parts where it had been as if id dragged it (i.e it tiled over the screen when i moved it). This appears to have been sorted with reloading xp. The problem with wow is that the screen is blotchy and the lag is so bad it is not worth playing again hopefully the driver update will sort this out. the other 2 pcs networked to it work fine and i've not overclocked the card i'm really hoping its not time for a new one! :thumbsup:

Yes, it should hopefully help. You get that kind of performance from a vidoe card that was jsut slamed in and is using some temporary generic windows driver.

Don't confuse him. I gave him a link to the latest driver that supports his video card.
