Greetings. First and foremost I feel like this question might not be entirely relevant to this forum, since the games I'm having issues with aren't quite "very old", and Windows XP is far from a "new system", but I reckon you guys might have an answer. Recently I've acquired a Radeon HD 2400 Pro, Visiontek brand, and had a hassle trying to install its drivers; I finally did it with Omega drivers. When I tried to play certain games, the card seems like it doesn't perform as well as it should; for example Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003) suffers from slowdown during any scenes with particle effects, such as explosions, and the entirety of Simpsons Hit and Run runs at a low framerate (~15-20 FPS), even on the lowest resolution setting. It runs worse than if I were to use integrated graphics! I am not sure if the HD 2400 is a weaker card than my prior Radeon 9550 (which I had to retire as it started artifacting), or if there's something wrong with my GPU, considering how I had a hard time trying to install drivers and getting Windows to identify it. Any and all help would be appreciated, thank you!
