    I am frustrated with ati's drivers.
    When the drivers do work correctly the card is a beast,but i never had problems with my old ti 4200.
    so does anybody wanna buy a 9700 pro AIW?

    have a read through the drivers section of the forums for any fixes...

    if you are referring to the OGL issue that has been addressed and fixed...

    if it is a different matter post in the trading post area... I have a friend who might be interested if the price is right..

    Mine is doing just fine with the new Catalysts. I'm breaking 16,000 3dmarks stock. I don't see what can possibly be wrong.

    dude, i don't see the edit key anywhere! my other forum has one... but yah, i have the fixed drivers also, and they work fine, along with the tv function
    i'm gona try the 3.1s and see how they go

    i found that if i have problems with mine, installing the drivers that shipped with it always fix the problem, then i work from there.

    edit: aha, i see it now!

    king ratt, you know thats a picture of a moogle don't you, not a rat? i'm sorry, but as a veteran secret of mana and final fantasy player, i just can't let that go unignored anylonger.... MOOGLE!

    the edit key is @ the top of your post m8 :D

    look for a little underlined linky :D

    anyways.. the problem with cat 3.9's was a very basic naming error by one of the coders... simply all in wonder v/s radeon... thats all teh error was...

    the fix basically renames all in wonder to radeon in the .inf file...

    there was no other error :cool:

    Dude, forget the Catalyst drivers. Check out the latest DNA drivers at http://download.guru3d.com/dna/

    These are unofficial, hacked drivers but don't be confused, that's a good thing. I have found that proper unofficial drivers are way better.

    I have had the 9700 pro since it first came out.Do I need to run a driver uninstaller before puting in the 3.9 driver(s)? Where do I get it if I do? Exactly which 2 or 3 drivers am I supposed to get and install and from where? Guess im kinda used to the GeForce cards. :p

    You don't need to uninstall your previous drivers to upgrade to the new ones. Just run the installer. But if you're a gamer, you gotta try the DNA drivers.
