    did you COMPLETELY remove all the old nVidia drivers?

    Yeah, it sounds more like a Driver problem then a hardware problem. It may also even be a DX problem, cause u may have to reinstall it after when you switch video cards.

    You might not like this, but I formated when I installed my AIW 9700 Pro a couple of weeks ago...Haven't had a problem with games or drivers...
    As a rule, I always format when I change a major piece of hardware.

    i don't format my hdd cause of major hardware changes(unless its the mobo itself), you should uninstall the nvidia drivers, reinstall dx and the install radeon drivers.

    ya you just have to make sure that you uninstall all the nvidia drivers. i did the same thing because i had a geforce 2 mx then upgraded to a radeon 9500. wondered why it didnt work properly, then realized i didnt remove the old drivers. did that and things were smooooooth.:thumb:

    if you're switching from an nVidia to an ATi graphics chipset - I would also suggest a thorough registry cleaning...at least..
    Although personally, I think a fresh install gives the best results

    I recomend a format and reinstall, it saves you alot of time figuring out what is going wrong.

    Of course at the expense of reinstalling windows and all of your appz etc :P

    If you ghost your harddrive you won't have this problem anymore though :)

    I upgraded from a geforce 4 MX 420 to Radeon 9500 pro. All I did was uninstalled the drivers using Windows add/remove program then took out the old card put in the Radeon installed the drivers and then got the latest ones from the ATI site. Absolutly no problems by far the quickest and easiest way of doing it
