Just thought id let anyone know whos interested, i have an ATI Radeon 9600pro and i dont seem to get any atim2tag errors on my event viewer anymore and it hasnt crashed during any games. Ill keep you posted if it does still continue but they may have resolved that old graphiccard error bug

Same problem with XP as well. You should go to the card's manufacturer for a driver. i.e. Sapphire. They had a fix under 8.6 for AGP for both XP and Vista for their cards.

Two things that really annoy me about the Radeon driver/software updates:

1) They always try to throw a bunch of garbage down your throat . It used to be that they wanted you to install Earthism or Steam. Now they want to install a free trial of WOW. Just give us the drivers and CCC, nothing else.

2) It seems more often than not the version of CCC packaged with the latest driver is usually an older version than the version of CCC that you already have.

I agree, having those stupid toolbars and offers are annoying enough but to include them with a device driver is just sheer stupidity. Stop it AMD, we know you're going broke but give us a break here.

Hopefully it fixes my 4850 :)

Lol... you forgot to specify what was wrong! if it is heat... I doubt drivers will fix it.

Actually you'd be surprised what drivers can fix.

This fixed the issues I was having with Steam games and my X1950XT --

"Running various games on a system containing an ATI Radeonâ„¢ X18x0 series of product no longer results in Time-out Detection and Recovery (TDR) when having Catalyst AI set to Advanced. Further details can be found in topic number 737-35828"

Apparently that was an issue with the X19x0 cards as well. Oh well, fixed! =)
