Asus A9250 Radeon Nightmare

Hey guys, my first post here, so sorry if it lacks what you need to know. Here goes!

My computer originally had an athlon 2100+, geforce4 128MB graphics card 8x AGP and 256Mb ram. I recently put in an Asus A9250 (the radeon chipset) because it just wouldnt work on my girlfriends machine (had to be noble didnt I?) and gave her my geforce:(. Anyway, iv been to all the house's, downloaded Asus's drivers, Ati drivers, and the windows drivers and none of them really help, the closest it came to working was about 3 seconds of Ground control 2.

My computer also now has an extra 512 Mb of ram.

The crash's always happen whenever a 3d game is played, it doesnt crash as much just doing normal tasks. Whenever a new driver is installed it dies and reverts to the old driver(the driver that windows dropped on it when i reinstalled windows).

Iv checked the bios, enabled and disabled all the available options, tried using at with a lower aperture size, nothing i can think of works:(.

Anyone got any idea's?

Thanks guys

Try cleaning the previous driver installation and starting fresh. First, go to http://www.drivercleaner.net/ and get Driver Cleaner (it is free). You said you already have the current driver, great. Now go to add/remove programs and remove the current (ATI or Asus?) driver. Then boot into safe mode and run Driver Cleaner TWICE, each time deleting all that it finds. I would suggest cleaning the previous driver installation for your Getforce card (Nvidia?). Run driver cleaner TWICE for this and delete all it finds. Then re-boot and install the current driver.
