I got a problem with my graphics on my PC. Here is the story behind it.
About 1 month ago I decided to buy a new graphic card. I discovered my slot was AGP and that my choice was limited. So I was suggested to buy ATI Radeon 2600 HD, for AGP slot. And I bought it. I installed it and everything and when I tried to open my video game, the first problem appeared. The screen was all messed up, the textures were messed, and all the text, to make it short: you couldn't see almost anything.
So I took my computer to the service and the guy fixed it. When he gave me my computer back it worked perfectly. When I asked what was the problem he said:
"The graphic card was too strong for your motherboard, so I updated the drivers so it could carry the graphic card."
Everything went fine until today. I bought a new hard disk. So I installed everything back again and when I opened the game.. I saw the same again. I tried to contact the service, but it's sunday so they don't work, and I need my computer really badly for tonight and also I don't have much cash anymore to pay some guy to just install some drivers...
So I was trying to do it by my own, downloaded about 10 different drivers, nothing helped. I am not even sure if I am looking for the right motherboard drivers, this is what EVEREST says:
Motherboard ID 63-121-0000010-00101111-072706-nVidia$M2N3V121_AM2NF3-VSTA BIOS P1.30
Motherboard Name Unknown
And this is what it says about my graphic card:
Video Adapter Properties:
Device Description ATI Radeon HD 2600 Series
Adapter String ATI Radeon HD 2600 Series
BIOS String 113-AAXXXXX-XXX
Chip Type ATI display adapter AGP (0x9587)
DAC Type Internal DAC(400MHz)
Installed Drivers ati2dvag (184.108.40.20634)
Memory Size 512 MB
So I am really clueless, no idea what to do. Here is a screenshot of the game how it looks:
And I would also like to mention that I cannot watch videos. Only some videos. I can watch WMA files, but not AVI ones... AVI clips are the same like games are for me. But WMA runs fine.
Please help me guys.
