  1. I have a radeon 9000 series graphics card, i have it working and everything but when i try to play half life 2:episode 2 it pops up with a "need to update drivers" message but when i go to the ati site none of the drivers work for me coming up with "missing inf file" "connect a vga cable"

    If you could and if anyone had this problem and resolved it please send me the link with the update
    Computer Specs are
    pentium 4 cpu 2.93ghz 2.93ghz
    2.49 of ram
    radeon 9000 graphics card (which i am able to use)
    windows XP

    What Operating System are you running and it is fully updated using Windows Update?

    Did you remove all your old drivers as suggested in the post rage linked?

    Try a program like driver sweeper and remove any traces of ati drivers from your pc, Then install 6.11. Then go to add or remove programs and remove catalyst control centre. Leaving only the display drivers.

    Hope this helps :)
