    One of my buddies got a Xtasy 9600 250mb video card and I just installed it for him yesterday... the card works fine when on default Windows drivers... but whenever its under the ATi drivers it crashes before even booting into windows.

    I've tried the 4.10 betas, Omega 4.10, and the Catalyst 4.9's... all produced the same problem.

    He's running Windows XP PRO... he had a GeForceMX 2 installed before and all I did was just pop the card out... couldnt find any drivers... and I ran Detonator R.I.P. and Detonator Destroyer on it to remove any nvidia files...

    What the hell is going on? Should I run Drivercleaner on it?
    :confused: I feel bad for the kid he cant live without the computer lol and it just sucks... he cant even boot into Windows to uninstall the drivers now... hopefully Safe Mode works..

    Any hints? Thanks guys

    well i went from a ti4600 to the same card and i ended up reformating. i ran driver cleaner an older version , and my computer didnt run as smooth as i like it to run. by the way the 9600 card i didnt like it and rplaced it with a 9800 pro, the 9600 ran neck in neck with a ti 4200 msi card. good luck on your problem

    I'm currently, and have been for sometime running a Xtasy 9600 256mb card and have experanced no trouble like your reporting. I have always found Xtasy cards run better on the Visiontech drivers, although I'm running the ATI Beta drivers now without any problems http://www2.ati.com/drivers/hotfix/wxp-w2k-8-07-018380E.exe here's the link to them. Also the 9600 cards don't like to run stable with the fast write turned off. Good Luck

    Well, installing ATi drivers after having nVidia installed first is known to frequently cause major problems. The only/safest way around is to completely remove (read 'reformat host partition') the nVidia drivers.
    On the bright side, no, it's not the card's fault.
