    I know I have a crap card, but hear me out.

    I cant play any games that use DirectX...dunno why...Like Dugeon Siege, Rogue Spear, or Microsoft Flight Simulator.

    I dont have the latest Cats for my card cuz they suck and make my computer mess up; I have 2.3.

    Its a 32mb Radeon...I need help cuz altogether I have spent close to 175 dollars on these games.

    What version of direct x are you useing?If your card isn't compatible with the direct x version the games need they wont run.Simple as that. Upgrade to a radeon 9000 for 60 quid.:devil:

    Fast response.

    I cant upgrade, thats not an option, I have to stick with what I have...I have DirectX8.1

    I can hear sounds but the screen is black.

    Right i found out that your card is direct x 7.0 compatible so any game demanding more wont work. Why rogue squadron wont work is beyond me. Do you just get a black screen?:devil:

    DIRECT X 7.0 THATS OLD AS .... DIRT

    I played Tribes 2 on this card with D3D w/about 30 fps no problems. I played it on XP w/DirectX8.1

    I think i know what the problem is. ATI are known to have patchy driver support and some games(only a few) have major issues with ATI's cards.Try downloading all the latest patches for those games and maybe a newer driver(only maybe as there still crappy) :devil:

    I think I have been getting my card all mixed up from the beggining..

    I have a Radeon 32mb SDR...I dont know if its the same as a Radeon 7200 because mine is PCI and the Radeon 7200 is AGP only..

    Ima reinstall the drivers for Radeon 32mb cuz my current drivers are for 7200
