Beware of beta sources that aren't posted on your manufacturers website. The best rule of thumb is this: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Again, these are "Leaked" drivers and you have no way of knowing what has been introduced into them so if you decide to try them then at least run a virus scan on them before you install it.

Personally, I'll only use stuff like this if I'm having a problem my hardware manufacturer's site hasn't provided a solution for.

I always try new drivers, beta or not:D Then again, I'm not worried about crashes and etc. sice I have a backup disc and add a system restore point before installing drivers. Perhaps it's because I'm a tweaker, and is curious if new drivers gives me better performance!
Also when concerning the Radeon card, all new drivers have to better than those they provide now :p The card lacks some good drivers that gets better quality (blending, smoothing and such) on graphics in games!

ugh, I hate ATI...they haven't released a new driver since October 2001, and those didn't even work for me, so I have to use the default XP drivers, which does not give OpenGL support!! AH!!!

Existenz, I could not get the ATI XP drivers for my All-in-Wonder Radeon to install either. I sent an e-mail to ATI and even tho it took them over 2 weeks to respond they did provide some detailed instructions that did work. I think it was mainly installing the latest Via AGP driver properly that fixed my problem. Now I just have to figure out why the DVD 5.0 will not work:)

If you are interested in what ATI said to do just give me your e-mail address and I will forward it to you.

Did you check to make sure that all your BIOS settings matched the ones that they had listed? Even if you dont think some of them look right it doesn't hurt to try them. I also installed the latest AGP drivers from Via before installing the ATI drivers.

Yeah, I did everything in there. Oh well, I'll keep my default Radeon drivers. They work fine...just can't play OpenGL games like Return to Castle Wolfenstein.

:mad:

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
