Issue with ATI x800xt PE + AMD X2 4600 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all

    I recently bought myself a new CPU (AMD X2 4600). Now, before I installed this CPU, my Aero interface worked perfectly (and was really nice ... damn good job by MS).

    Now, with the new processor in, my GPU (Sapphire X800XT PE) does not get recognized by Vista. I installed the ATI Catalyst driver for Vista, but this doesn't work at all.

    I now get a hardware rating of 1.0 in the control panel, and get an "hardware driver failure" in the device manager.

    I'm not sure the replacement of the CPU is related to the malfunctioning of the Aero interface, but it sure would be a strange coinsidence ...

    If any of you guys know about this problem, or might know a solution, that would be great !

  • Use a utlity like Easy BCD to disable one of the processor cores.  This worked for me.  It seems to be a known issues with the amdx2 vista and ati.
