    Check if it has "RC2" in the name: if it does, you have the wrong version.

    You need one that has "RC3" in the name.

    I may be wrong but i believe you have the wrong version. Does it have "rc3" in it's name?

    EDIT

    The file name should be "vista32-64_8-561rc3-081201a-072643E_CAT-8-12.exe"

    Not just an ATI issue, I have an older gaming rig running SLI and it does the same thing comming out of sleep... Must be a DRM thing, def driver related.... Yea Vista!! Common Windows 7...

    I wonder if this Driver will Support AGP parts out of the box or are we going to have to wait for the Hotfix Driver?

    Thanks for the news, got the drivers up and running... may I say hell yeah? Everything is running like pie! Running crysis wars and far cry 2 so much better, no benchmarks from me though. Sigh now if only I got my other 4850 back from RMA >=[

    Usually the release candidates do support AGP, the 8.11 betas did, so I'm going to presume these do as well. I'll be installing them tonight after work. If you haven't tried them out before me I'll tell you what I think.

    :rockout:

    UPDATE: Maximum disappointment! It wouldn't install :( I've now gone back to the 8.11 RC2 as this was the set I managed to get 9606 with - hopefully I'll be able to break that score.

    Well I may wait for Final Release Drivers and Probably a Format to get this machine fresh, I was thinking about getting a copy of Vista and puting it to a diff HD and run XP and Vista Parallel and see how Vista does, but it seems NF2 Dont have New Drivers, along with the SATA Controller.

    I like these, things seem a bit smoother, may have to do with my fresh install last night but I keep my systems really clean.

    Are these new drivers expected to fix any crossfire issues?
