I just installed a new Radeon HD 2600 XT (512 MB) video card. Everything is incredibly slow (example, the blue welcome screen at start up 'scrolls' down the field to fill the screen, followed by a good 30 seconds to draw my desktop icons).
I got it in part to play games, and edit video in Premiere Elements. The game (oblivion for one) is completely distorted, blocky. You can't even make some things out to exit.
'SmartGart' insists that the AGP speed is 'OFF'. I adjust it to the 'on' position, it requires a reboot - and it's back off again when it reboots. Checked my BIOS settings, which tell me AGP is on at 8x.
I downloaded the latest drivers for my card "3" times (assuming I'd made an error the first time at least). Upon installation it stops, and tells me no such hardware is on my machine. This is where I began pulling out my hair. So far, I've only been able to use the drivers that came on the disc.
Any information would be wonderful! Don't hesitate to ask for more info. Thanks a bunch,
