driver probs and WinXP


New member
Can anyone tell me why, with the drivers on the install CD for my Radeon 8500DV (v. 3286? something like that), I have no problems at all, except of course they dont' have the new features like the new drivers. However, when I install ANY driver set above this set, XP has many problems. From lockups, to blue screen, to restarts. There's no random pattern. It's very frustrating, because I'd like to use XP. At least the problems don't happen in 2k. If anyone can help, thanks!
you need to get the latest official ATI drivers from their website. Dont bother with this leaked/alpha driver s**t.
