Hello everybody! I acquired a Sapphire Radeon X1950 PRO AGP 512mb recently and installed the card in several systems in order to test it including:
1. socket 462 - Barton 3200, 2*1gb, Abit AN7
2. socket 462 - Barton 3200, 2*1gb, Abit KW7
3. socket 754 - Clawhammer 3700, 2*1gb, Abit KV8 PRO
4. socket 754 - Clawhammer 3700, 2*1gb, Abit NF8 PRO
In all systems the driver 10.2 installs just fine but after the reboot I am greeted with 640*480 8 bit display and any attempt to run a 3d application such as 3dmark 2001 will lead to a freeze! The seller is positive that the card is 100% OK and insists that the problem is on my part. I did searched around and found there is a hotfix available for late Radeon AGP cards but I could not find it! Should I use an older driver version? Does anybody has that particular hotfix?
