The only thing I can think of to suggest is rolling back your ATI drivers. That and maybe finding some older ones to see how they work for you.

Did you do a upgrade install or clean install when setting up XP? If you did teh upgrade, i would recomend doing a clean install. Upgrading one OS to another can sometimes be less effieient and compatible

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!
