I just picked up the card yesterday, and it seems as if my computer recognizes that the card is installed, Control Panel > System > Hardware > Devices > Display Adaptors Radeon 9250 + Radeon 9250 secondary >Properties "This device is working properly." Yet, after following the instructions provided with the card for installation, and installing the software on the CD that came with the card, I reboot, and get this message: "The ATI Control Panel failed to initialize because no ATI driver is installed, or ATI driver is not working properly. The ATI Control Panel will now exit." I have been searching for hours on the ATI website on the ATI site I tried downloading various relevent software and got the same result. So far I have not been able to find any answers elsewhere. Any help would be appreciated. And yes, my issue might be newbie related, this is the first time I have ever installed a video card. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.
