    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    What OS are you running?

    Did you reinstall your mobo drivers?

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    OS=Operating system. In other words, what version of Windows are you running?

    Mobo=Motherboard.

    Regards Howard :)

    Are you running the latest version of directX?

    You can get it from the Microsoft downloads site HERE.

    Once you`ve got the Directx installed, try installing the drivers for your card from HERE.

    Regards Howard :)

    Go to add remove programme in your control panel and uninstall anything to do with ATI.

    Reboot your computer.

    Download the Driver cleaner pro programme from HERE. Read the instructions carefully.

    Run the cab cleaner for ATI, then run the driver cleaner for ATI.

    Reboot your computer.

    Download and install the correct drivers for your card. See if that helps.

    If not, I`m out of ideas I`m afraid.

    Regards Howard :)
