Low graphics scoring, Radeon 9600 series RRS feed

  • Question

  • My scoring for the windows experience index under graphics is 1.0, and gaming graphics is 2.0. I figured it must be the driver, so I attempted to download the newest ATI catylist to correct this. 3 times I downloaded it my computer crashed and would not restart in windows. I had to reboot in safety and get rid of the new install. I finally got it to update a new driver on 8/15/2006, but the scoring is still the same and it isn't running any smoother. My pages lag when I try to bring them up and when I right click on an application for a menu, all I get is a blank box until I scroll over it and then the options appear.

    I have the Radeon 9600 series ATI technologies, updated 8/15/2006 with version

    Windows Vista Ultimate with a 32 bit OS

    Processor is the Intel Celeron CPU 2.70 GHz 2.69 GHz

    Motherboard is the P4X400 Dragon Lite-has been discontinued and showing no new updates

    Any ideas on what could be going on here? My husband said something about getting in to the bios/cmos to change something, but I would like some clarification before I go snoopig in there.

  • many ppl including myself can not get the ati driver working.

    check device manager > ati card > properties to see if you get the error code 43.
