    I have an Ati 9600xt the chip under the fan says so its a 256mb with Hynix memory.
    I read the bios and it says pro with 400 not 500 and when i reflash it with an Xt bios i get black screen in windows.I am having problems finding an Ati bios with Hynix memory so i tried Gecube and Sapphire both with black screen.
    When i have the original bios that is a Pro at 400 before the windows Xp loads or i go into the motherboard bios there is alot of screen flickering.
    Any suggestions?

    You could theoreticly OC it to 1Ghz, but only for a nanosecond before it fried. :D

    So yes. Use ATItool and let it work on it for awhile to see what you get stable.
