  1. Yesterday i bought this video card (Radeon HD 2600 Pro AGP) and after I changed the cards, I turned the computer on, and the screen didn't respond.i also think the computer was frozen... when i changed back to my older graphic card it worked without any problem... please can anybody tell me what to do?

    by the way my System is:
    Intel pentium 4 3.0GH
    768 RAM
    power suplier :400W
    and my older video card is : Radeon 9200 se 128BM agp...

    thanks for helpers.

    This card runs better with more ram. 1 gig or better is suggested. Also, if your PSU is borderline on that 400 watts, you could need more power. 400 watts and 512 MB ram are the very (minimum) requirements. If not those things, maybe you need to exchange it for another. You may want to do that first.

    1. With the old ATI card installed, start the machine:

    2. Download the latest catalyst drivers for your NEWE card, but don't install yet.

    3. Then and uninstall ALL the ATi drivers firstly by:

    a. using uninstall programmes; then by
    b. downloading this http://www.softpedia.com/get/Securit...-Cleaner.shtml and running it for Ati drivers.

    6. Shutdown and install the NEW card.

    6,Restart in safe mode (tap F8 on boot)


    7. Install the previously downloaded Ati driver


    8. Restart normally
