Hi Nina - and every one else who cares???
Please note: i am not a computer wiz or anything else computer by any stretch of the imagination. I see computers as a tool, I know how to use them. I don't know how to fix them.
The instructions I have are for an asus comp, but if you have an ati problem i dont think it matters what type computer you have????. (Forum managers don't hesitate to correct anything I've written here... I want to help not hinder)
I will post instructions as I recieved them below:
go to www.asus.com.au........go
Then in the three dropdown lists, select notebook for first one……….then F5 Series for second………then F5R for third then hit go or search
You will see a black list at bottom on the next page with plus signs…..click on VGA
The very first one will say the following..
Graphics Driver for WinXP
Download this one………and then follow the last email how I said to install the SMBUS driver first…but follow all the steps in last email exactly.
It’s a 117MB file so its big…..If it drops out or goes too slow, cancel it and download from another one of the 4 locations…Europe is normally quick.
If it says its done and you think its downloaded to fast, sometimes it will say the file is done and you see the file on the desktop but its only half downloaded…To confirm its done, right click on the file on desktop and it
Should be around 117mb big J..
Follow these steps exactly:
After you Download the 2007 3.42CCC drivers online
extract the files to a folder
Uninstall ALL ati software on pc……….control panel/ display driver / uninstall utility
In the folder you extracted..there is a folder called SBDRV (system bus driver)
Run the setup file in there and install. Restart if it says, or if not, restart anyways.
Next….Run the SETUP file in the folder to install the normal display drivers.
Appaarently this fixes the problem. Good luck!
