Solved would lke to delete ati3duag.dll manually

Specs: Windows XP sp3, 4 gigs
can I safely delete this file? It's connected to the graphics card, and is causing havoc in WoW. I would like to just get rid of the file if possible but without downloading unknown cleaners.

This is a brand new computer setup, and it apparently arrived with the AMD radeon graphics card.

This is part of your Radeon card... are you sure it is in your system or is it in fact missing. Have you checked? The re is a lot more information here:

Ewen, thank you for such a prompt answer. We have tracked the WoW booting problem to this particular .dll. This is a new computer, and all the drivers and such have been updated--this is exactly what I get, a NonPage Error and mini dump which is typically associated with the ati file.

Let me look over what's there (yes, there's a bunch of info, isnt there)

would the .dll be visible in the registry or just as a component of the Radeon card?

✔ Best Answer
If you want to get rid of your video card driver, just uninstall your video card driver. Hacking out bits of it manually will at best prevent you from using any 3D acceleration, and at worst BSOD your PC on boot.

yep, we just figured that out, lol. Its still under warranty, so my husband can at least get his money back. I am truly amazed that this is the only response i've seen that suggests not using the silly thing. Thank you.

I've just given WoW a solid test without it, and the Intel HD graphics work flawlessly. yay.

"the Intel HD graphics work flawlessly"

Sure, if you enjoy inferior graphics, it works great!

lets put it this way, riider; my computer is now able to handle whatever WoW dishes out, without faltering. for a week I have been using a high end graphic card that booted me from the game constantly. Now I have something that you may call inferior, but I call very workable. I have been in and out of this game all day, and not once have I been booted, or had to view the blue screen of death, or any other of the lockups associated with minidumps.

And my husband gets his money back on the graphics card.

And beyond that, why should you care? And why all this hostility?

Not hostility, just a comment. It would have helped if you had posted the complete system specs along with the model of the ATI (AMD) card. Your power supply specs are important too. There are numerous hoops that usually have to be jumped thru to get a "high end graphic card" installed & running properly too. For instance, did you uninstall the Intel graphics drivers & disable the Intel integrated graphics in the BIOS before installing the card?

If the error message was Page_Fault_in_Nonpaged_Area, the cause is usually RAM related.

This is a new computer. With 4 Gigs of ram, a new motherboard and new everything else, the only thing causing problems was the .dll. We traced it down and that was the only problem out there. The motherboard and the processor accomodate/enhance) the Intel chip in some way, and gives me a very nice graphical setup (if that's the right terminology).
I thought I read in here somewhere not to post log files or specs without being asked, as it does take up huge amounts of bandwidth if everyone does it. Outside of WoW, the graphics card ran perfectly, no glitches, no dumping. Only inside the game, it couldnt handle the graphics. Frankly the graphics are as good without it as they were with it. with the added bonus of no auto restarts and no mini dumps everytime I enter heavy fighting sections.

The net is a lot like organized religion. All kinds of ways to get to heaven, and only the one you're involved in is the one that works for everyone--when it actuality the one that works for you is not necessarily the one that works for someone else.
*g* Amen, brother.
