I am having problems with my Radaeon 9600 series. I am running Windows XP Home.
I believe it is my out-dated drivers that is causing an issue with Counter-Strike. What happens is my FPS drops to like 4-15 after about 15 min of playing, this lasts for about 30 sec, then it goes back to normal. This gets progressively worse after the first time, until it happens basically every round.
I un-installed my old drivers, and I downloaded the up to date drivers. I then installed them and what was supposed to happen is I restart the computer, upon start up it tests the new drivers and then runs them. But it never ran them nor did I see them being tested. When I look at my driver info it has drivers that are from a year ago.
A wierd issue that I am having which might be part of this problem occurs when I right click the desktop. What happens is first I get a message that says Windows installer at the top and "Preparing to install" in the middle. Nothing happens however so I click cancel. The a window pops up that says "The InstallScript engine on this machine is older than the version required to run this setup. If available, please install the latest version of ISScript.msi, or contact your wupport personnel for further assistance." At the top of this box it says "ATI Catalyst Control Center." I have tried what is stated here,http://consumer.installshield.com/kb.asp?id=Q108158 to fix it but it doesn't work.
I would greatly appreciate any help you guys could provide.
