Problems with X700 Pro and Catalyst 6.8 -
| posts: 1 | Location: Maryland, USA
I downloaded the Catalyst 6.8 drivers to upgrade the 6.3 I currently have. Prior to installing 6.8, I used the ATI Unistall to remove the old drivers then rebooted. I then installed the 6.8 drivers (and yes, the .net stuff is installed too) and rebooted as required. Although I do not get any errors during installation and the ATI control center appears in the menu as always, the drivers appear to be acting strangely. I noticed right away that when I try to move a window across the screen, it is slow to react and the window I'm moving 'jumps' to the new location rather than making a nice smooth transition as it did under the old drivers. I didn't even bother trying any of my games since I was getting this oddball behavior in a the 2D desktop enviroment. I uninstalled 6.8 and reinstalled 6.3 and everything is back to normal.
Has anyone else had this problem? Is there just some setting that is goofed up after install that I can change/fix? Here's my setup:
Gigabye mobo w/KT400 chipset
AMD Athlon XP 2600+
ATI Radeon X700 Pro w/256MB RAM
MS Windows XP Pro SP2
Thanks for any help.
