Problem with Ati Radeon X700 AGP 8x RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi!

    i have an Ati Radeon X700 AGP 8x 256mb, when i try to install vista beta 2, has appear on the monitor the  loading files message..but after that the monitor becomes black and the power-on lights of it starts flashing

    when i have tried i have thought that is a problem of the drivers.

    fortunatly i have oneother graphic card, an ATI Radeon 9550 agp 8x, and with this one vista starts regularly and i have installed it with this one.

    but i prefere to use the X700 than the 9550...so i have tried to install the ATI catalyst driver for windows vista and to plug the x700 instead of 9550...

    but it gives the same problems..

    when windows starts the monitor becomes black

    i have tried to start windows vista in safe-mode and there it works

  • hi i have the same problem with my radeon x700. my pc is running just for 2 minutes then i getting a popup that say, the atikmdag.sys has stopped working and has recovered, but it happening faster and faster, then my pc reboot. ati video cards do not work in vista so far, the error with the atikmdag file has not yet been solved as i know, if ya try to google this name you will find something to read for many years to come :-)
