Trying to get this #%#$% card to work properly.
1] Removed all ATI software both automatically and manually according to ATI
instructions and emails.
2] Completed a Windows XP repair
3] Reinstalled all Windows updates including SP2 [as my disc is an original
XP pro] - fixed all applications that were erroring out after repair [3 or 4]
4] Downloaded latest Catalyst from 4 days ago
5] Installed Catalyst - no glitches - Norton was disabled.
This is where the problems start....
6] Rebooted - Proper ATI Components detected. Including 2 basic VGA
devices, which doesn't sound right to me. Comes up in 640*480 resolution.
7] Went to screen properties, settings. Only one monitor is shown not 2.
But it shows the card linked to my monitor.
8] Removed both ATI. display adapters [dual monitor] under Device manager.
9] Rebooted and it came up with both monitors and all works fine.
10] Everytime I reboot and it goes back to basic VGA and 640*0480 resolution
with only one monitor showing under screen properties. Try to run catalyst
control panel and I get an error about the drivers being not updated so I
can't run Catalyst.
11] Back to step 7!
What do I need to do next?
It sounds like a registry issue to me.
