Video Card Problem

    I run a AMD Athlon 2000XP with 512 DDR Ram using Win Me. I have installed
    the above card and the driver software won't work, e.g. wallpaper won't load
    and games freeze.

    I ununstalled all ATI Drivers and clean booted and tried to reinstall the
    drivers again with only systray and explorer running - same result! The
    shop where I bought the card tell me that Win Me sucks and there are no
    problems with Win XP - typical excuse!

    I then downloaded the latest drivers from ATI and followed their install
    instructions to the letter - again same result!

    Can anyone help or advise? I am seriously thinking of reinstalling my old
    nVidia card!

    Many thanks in advance for any help!

    Try formatting then clean installing with the ATi card in, that'll remove
    all the old Nvidia stuff, then install it by ATi's instructions.
