Hello guys... i'm new here and 'm in desparate need for help on this problem.

I have a ATI Radeon 9550 (256MB, AGP) and when i play games, or when i use Winamp, at some point the monitr turns black and a window appears saying: Wrong video settings. please change settings to 1280x1024@60Hz... which it is set. The computer doesn'T work anymore and i just can hit the reset button.

It's not the Monitor.. the same problem pops up with other monitors. The card works... put it in my friends pc and there were no problems.

AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3000+
512RAM
Windows XP 5.01.2600 Service Pack 1

whats the monitor? why are you running SP1? and when did this problom start? is it a new card or used card, how long have you had it? When diagnosing a problom you find out what you did befor to make it go bad...or did it just go bad. Also do you have Catalyst 5.7?

my guess is some kind of misconfiguration with directx....afterall it works fine in other comps...and its not the monitor apparently....install the same driver you tested the card with in the other computer...get new ver of dx then run dxdiag.exe....if no luck update windows...if it still doesnt work and you dont like sp2 then uninstall it and buy new card ;)

good luck :cool:

i am assuming you tested the same games w/same settings + winamp on your friends computer

whats the monitor?
Philips 170C5BS

why are you running SP1
Because i don't have SP2 yet.

and when did this problom start?
the very first day of using this new computer

is it a new card or used card, how long have you had it?
It's new, it came in the new computer

I didn't really do anything to fuck it up.. it was fucked up right from the start.

Someone told me there might be problems when updating a non-original version with SP2, is it true?
I couldn't test the same games on my firends computer cuase he didn'T have enough space on his harddrive for them.

It'S not just games. It's when i watch videos/listen to music or even when i'm looking at some photographs or whatever.

The person from the ATI Support (which is really really really slow) told me to update the driver for the AGp Port. I downloaded the driver and started the programm, and it says: "Error to find the AGP device".

He also told me to donload the latest driver for the soundcard (which i did) and to update windows with Servicepack2 (which i didn't, cause i was told it really slows down the omputer and sucks anyway).

just update everythin and see if that is your prob....like i said you can always go back to sp1.........as far as that error thats odd...aparently it's found the agp device at some point ;).......have you ran dxdiag......and try updating your codecs

if you have updated dx, codecs, mobo, vid card, and sp2...and it doesnt work...run dxdiag.exe and see if it finds any errors....if you are still having troubles then I suggest you return it for an exchange or possibly your money where ever you purchased it.

**IMPORTANT** DO NOT UPDATE THE DRIVERS FROM YOUR CD'S THAT CAME WITH COMPUTER (THEY MAY BE OUTDATED). DOWNLOAD THEM FROM THE MANUFACTUER'S SITE AND DO NOT GET MODDED DRIVERS. TO UPDATE YOUR CODEC'S GO TO DEVICE MANAGER AND UNDER SOUND, AUDIO, AND GAME CONTROLLERS UPDATE EVERY SINGLE ITEM LISTED USING WINDOWS UPDATES.
