Well, I had a Radeon 9250 that I had to get rid of as I was getting the 'DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_OR_LESS_EQUAL' BSOD with it like every time I'd turn it on, so I got some other card, but... I don't know what it is... It's got no company ID marks, only some serial number thing I can't find anything on (MS-V025 VER 10) And another number on it '109-a62801-00' It's a VGA, DVI, and S-Video card, no cooling fan, just a cooling vent thingy with raised metal for the vent.. What is this? Thanks

AGP card?
I got a couple of old hits for a Nvidia 64meg AGP video card most likely a Nforce3 or 4

No, that's not it, mine's PCI Express, not nearly as many 'vents', and mine's also got S-Video out. And is kinda shaped like this

Perhaps it is. Plug it in to your Motherboard slot your older card came from. PSU unplugged. Be sure to compare the two video cards that they are the same slot type. Reboot and let Windows XP pick up the device and load your drivers. Use Window's Custom update site for your drivers, or manually install them from the manufacturer. Device manager will tell your Video card model under display devices. If you have on board video It is disabled by default.

I can't plug it into the same slot, as the ATi Radeon 9250 was a PCI card, this one is a PIC EXPRESS card, also, I've tried that with the hardware thing, and it says it can't find any drivers for it. All I get under the display properties is 'Plug and Play VGA Card'

Post your Motherboard. I'm thinking AGP slot 8X.

Ok big issue, I installed the driver and now I am having the SAME problem I was with the Radeon 9250. During 3D programs the computer just freezes entirely, or blue screens.

Well I've actually got the entire driver set removed, as it's that stupid ATi Catalyst Control Center, which it's either all-or-nothing, and apparently also a matter of the driver itself being a problem too, now without the driver though, my 3D games won't work as it says 'No DirectX Compatible Hardware Detected'. What should I do on this? Just get a non-ATI Graphics Card?

Long shot here but is the PCI express slot enabled in the BIOS? Try option 2 and download the display driver only. In my opinion Microsoft custom updates works well for drivers.

Try another card if you have one to try. Might even be another hardware issue. PSU, Ram.

Alright, I'm trying the regular driver now. It's not a matter of PCI in bios cause the Radeon X300 is PCI Express, where as the Radeon 9250 was just plain PCI.

Nope, still freaking locks up and shuts down/blue screens.... I honestly can say that if you're going to build your own computer, ATi is a load of ****

I am not familiar with your BIOS setup, although in my opinion some BIOS setups require you to select PCI Express as your primary video device in the BIOS. Again long shot here.

Unless you have another PSU and or video card to try it is possible your Motherboard is downgrading. Also try one stick of Memory Ram at a time. PSU unplugged. Maybe its time to clean out your case if you haven't already. Check your fans and paste, re seat your CPU. Temperature, PSU issue? Good luck.

Try this with the video driver uninstalled lets see if you have the correct driver.> In the Device Manager, Right click on My Computer, Select Properties, On the Hardware Tab click on Device Manager, Right Click on the error (Yellow Question mark), Then on Properties, Then on the Details Tab.
A window will open and under Device Instance ID it will post the DEV/VEN#.

I have to agree with Logo09. This really sounds like a PSU problem. I would find a way to test your PSU or if you can see if you know any one with at least a 400 watt power supply you can test with. A little warning, If this is a PSU problem and it's a cheap PSU, it could blow and take other parts of your system with it. I would also suggest running memtest86 and see if you have a bad memory stick.
