Stand-alone graphics processors are expansions that can be removed, upgraded or replaced if necessary.
By: Chaz There have been a lot of threads lately regarding drivers and how to update them. Windows XP: If you have an ATI Radeon X1000 series card (X1400, X1600, and so on), use the Catalyst Mobility drivers, suite 6.6 and up (earlier versions do not support X1000 cards). Go to the Device Manager under the System Properties and right-click on the Display Adapter that's installed and update its driver.
Follow this process for installing drivers: Quote: 1. Before I even begin, remember for Vista-64-bit you need the 64-bit drivers. Notes: For the Nvidia Quadro and ATI Fire GL users, staying with the stock drivers from your manufacturer is the best advice I can give right now.
Now navigate to C:\ATI\Support-1_xp_dd_40211KXP_INF and remember the INF you want to use is C2_ if you're on Win2000 and CX_ when on Win XP.
To identify the manufacturer and model of the computer's video adapter or chipset, use the Direct X Diagnostic Tool included with Windows 8, Windows 7, and Vista.
In Windows 8, if you're in Metro mode, choose Desktop, then open the Search Charm, which is where you type in dxdiag.
Updating the graphics driver can resolve display issues in Adobe applications.
The following guide should answer most of these questions. Newer drivers can improve 3D performance, fix bugs and other graphical glitches in certain games, support new features, and use your hardware more efficiently. Omegas are known to have issues with these cards so far. For Radeon Xx00 cards (X300, X700, etc), the Omegas work very well. - FOR ATI INTEGRATED CARD USERS (Radeon Xpress 200M, 1100/1150) Follow these instructions for Windows XP: Quote: Originally Posted by Cosine The only way I was able to get my Radeon Xpress 1100 (integrated; apparently it's 200M-based) updated to the latest drivers (7.1) was manually updating. When prompted, choose to install the driver of your choice and don't let Windows do any searching anywhere.
Disclaimer: Supported in this guide: This guide applies to ATI Radeon and Nvidia Ge Force cards, but does not apply to ATI Fire GL or Nvidia Quadro cards, nor Nvidia integrated graphics cards (Nvidia Go6150). Navigate back to the 2KXP_INF folder and choose the proper INF file for your OS and scroll down until you see "ATI MOBILITY RADEON XPRESS 200".
