Driver update error

Ati / Radeon 9000 pci
January 14, 2010 at 19:51:35
Specs: Windows XP Service Pack 3
When updating my driver for my new ATI
Radeon 9000 256MB PCI DVI/VGA Video
Card w/TV-Out, I get these two errors.


The driver I downloaded is from the ATI/AMD
Website, yet the errors I get are still the same.
If it helps, the Video Card is "Powered by ATi".
I don't know what else to do. Any help is good.

Thanks :)

Did you completely uninstall the previous driver?

The previous driver came with the graphics card, and even when I
installed it in my computer, I had to reinstall my computer for the
driver to work. I also tried that probably 3 weeks ago, but it
comes up with the same errors. My previous VGA card is broken
now, so I can't try update my driver with that in.

Yeah, couple of things need your attention. First is to follow the directions from ATI.

Although the ATI provided drivers should work, Powered by ATI usually means the card was manufactured by another company like Gigabyte, PowerColor, etc. You might find find the drivers you need on their particular website.

"my new ATI Radeon 9000 256MB PCI"

I realize it's a standard PCI card but you could have done a lot better...I think you're going to be very disappointed in the gaming performance of that card.

I already am disappointed, but since my computer is older then
PCI-e, it obviously doesn't support it. I definitely would have
gotten a much better graphics card IF my computer did support
it. I would much rather prefer an Nvidia GFX card, but I just don't
have the money to afford it. Nvidia has always been better in my
eyes, because the drivers work with the card, and they are much
easier to update then an ATI.

It really has nothing to do with ATI vs nVidia. The Radeon 9000 is extremely old. And it was considered a budget card when it was released in 2002, not a gaming card. Regardless of it being PCI, you can't expect to play modern games on an 8 yr old budget card.

You could have gotten an FX5200 256MB for $30:

Or for just $10 more, a Geforce 8400GS 512MB:
