  1. Hi, i've been bothered by this problem. Everytime i try to install ATI Radeon graphics card on my computer, it says "an unknown error occured. please restart ATI Catalyst Install Manager". I've been thinking where or what is the error. i've changed my OS thinking it will work if changed. By the way here's some question:

    >is it possible to install ATI Radeon driver w/o it's card?

    >can it be installed with an Intel 82945G graphics accelerator driver AGP?

    here's my system specs:

    OS: windows xp pro 2002 sp2
    RAM: 1016 Mb ram
    Sound: Realtek high definition audio driver
    Processor: 2 intel @ 3.00 Ghz processor
    Directx: Directx10 prefix

    please help me! i can't play the games i want :( Thanks a lot for the response

    You could try running Driver Sweeper and then installing the ATI drivers. See how that goes.

    Do you have an ATI Card (if so which one)?

    If so, it is pointless to try to install catalyst drivers, because they are not meant to be installed on system without ATI graphic card(s).

    Edit:
    Please download PC Wizard 2010 and let us know your system's full specifications.
