use device manager to install them.
Hey dude how do un-install the ol drivers..... step by step if you can mate! the way i do it i have 100% luck un-installing and Re in-stalling the drivers
yeah...i guess...just theres nothing with the ol 8.12hotfixes...*sigh*...but ill install them
Warning, they are for AGP cards mainly, I am currently on the 8.12s and only download the latest hotfix for backup purposes (since i see no FTP). I was on 8.1, moved to 8.5 and then 8.12, all work for AGP, 9.2s are probably the same (Just work and support newer games)
wait a second. are you trying to tell me the 8.12hotfixes were meant for agp cards...cause thats whats running my 4870x2....LOL!!!
I never thought 8.12/8.11 was any good either.
i think it mainly deals with the way the AGP cards access DX, because the report applies to the 3850 and lower cards after Cat 7.7s.
well i unistalled all my old drivers went into safe mode and used driver sweeper and got rid of all the crud and came back into windows and it still refuses to install them..im not impressed...at all
Dont mine me im a idiot..LOL!!!! apparently i was mr fast clicky and not paying attention and i downloaded the 64 bit for windows xp...LOL at me..go ahead and laugh ill take it like a man!
Well my 3DMark06 score went from 12844 to 12946
yup gotta be careful of that, XP64 is Server 2003 code.
M8 you have a good reason to brag
i update my drivers every 5-7 months.
I wasnt bragging at all. I was just showing I got a small gain from the new driver. You need to relax kiriakost :shadedshu
I checked previous ATI driver reports , and in all they claim minor fixes about XP 32 , so i will keep the 9.2 until to see a true bug or something , benchmarks are just benchmarks , so far on gaming i did not see any negative effects .
You need to relax too , i did not say that you had brag ...
And by the way , i am not M8 , i am M9 (advanced model )
ATi release more than one hotfix, for your 4870X2 the AGP hotfix wouldn't have worked.
sorry didnt know there was a submit news button my bad.
That button never seems to 'work' - I'll submit news which will be ignored, and the 20 minutes or so later the exact thing I posted is up on the main page without any mention of who sent it in.
Sometimes I ask myself why I stay here, then I realise that not everyone is an asshole and that there are some freaking brilliant members here.
Yeah I posted up a longer version of this article last night and didn't know there was a way to submit to the news staff..but O Well.
Ok lets roll again about the drivers subject ...
The 9.2 states as major advantage the " OpenGL 3.0 context "
Does any one know what software or Game using it ?
Off topic ...
Just download and test the old ATI screen saver ( ATI ScreenSpace) - Moon planets and stuff , amazing view
Heh, just tested it on one of my old 3870x2s and it died during installation. I feel sorry for the poor thing, but that made the 100th card I've killed. I will be enshrining it just for the heck of it. It definitely served me well.
I'm going to reformat and try a fresh install of these drivers... I never have an easy time installing ANY ati drivers but this time I think I screwed up something and I'm sick of trying to find fixes for this installation.
Thank Freaking Goodness, a Crysis DX10 boost
I think it's time for a fresh Format and a Vista x64 install. But after I test the 9.2's for a week or so to see if I have to format.
Drivers won't detect my 4859 then the install manager crashes
