I've had the file to update the driver on my ATI Rage 128 Pro sitting on my desktop for a couple months now - knowing it would be a bugger. I got a new LCD (Samsung 730B) for Christmas, and decided I should go ahead and update.
After fixing my autoexec.nt file, first problem encountered, I ran into a new unexpected twist. The latest driver for ATI Rage 128 Pro - WXP_R128_6_13_3279.exe Windows XP Display Driver for ATI RAGE 128 / RAGE128 PRO - says "This display driver is not compatible with the display adapter(s) in your system."
I got the driver directly from the ATI site, as you can see it is listed for my adapter. Well? I had to uninstall the old driver to install the new driver, so now Windows has reverted to an even older ATI driver. This morning I awoke to a "your system has recovered from a serious error" message. Suspecting the old driver that I had once updated to be a problem, I went ahead and sent the error report so I could see what Microsoft said - other than install SP2. I was right. It was caused by the old driver which was automatically installed by XP when I removed the driver to do the install. They said to contact ATI, which no longer supports the "legacy" Rage Pro 128.
Now, I'm a bit shy about removing the driver and attempting again, and disgusted enough that I might jsut tear the computer apart (after long tedious hours of research and another expensvie purchase) and put in a new card. In all my research, I've discovered that ATI cards can be a bugger to work with. But, I figured I'd see if someone here might have just the solution to this dilemma. I'd like to get the updated driver installed.
Thanks for any help.
