    I tried vista 5536 but I am still stuck with the Graphics Card Crashing
    resulting in me not being able to fully installing vista.

    I have to disable the device. According to the hardware compatibility that
    my system meets the recommendations by far. I heard switching the agp texture
    size from 512 down to 256 will work....My motherboard does not support
    switching the agp texture size so I am left out there.

    Hopefully with The Release Candidate one comming out shortly that this
    problem is fixed cause the rest of vista looks awsome!

    Hello.

    The ATI drivers for Vista RC1 is a real sorrow for my Radeon X1600 Pro 512
    MB graphics RAM AGP 8x, too. It gives 4 bit color horizontal stripes during
    booting such that I cannot see anything on screen. After waiting a couple of
    minutes I type in my password blindly and press enter. I then see the
    desktop. But I cannot open Control Panel nor Device Manager to uninstall the
    ATI drivers. ATI drivers never let me do it, ironic enough. Now I run on MS
    supplied drivers that come with Vista.

    Funny, I read over the internet that ATI has WHQL certified drivers.

    Regards
