ATI, Vista RC1 and Display Drivers

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Hardware' started by Juozas Dovydaitis, Sep 7, 2006.

  1. I'm experiencing a strange Vista behaviour: I made a clean Vista RC1
    installation, installed ATI drivers, when needed I rebooted. Everything
    looked fine. Than I had to reboot again, and guess what - i saw an error
    message "Display driver stopped working and has recovered". After couple of
    seconds my screen starts flickering, and all I can see is a mouse pointer.

    Intel Pentium D 3.00 GHz
    1GB RAM
    128 MB Radeon X550 video card

    I'm also having video problems with an ATI Mobile Radeon chip on RC1. It
    will boot ok for a while, then BSOD, then only a black screen until I
    uninstall the Microsoft ATI drivers and install the standard drivers (in safe
    mode, as that is all that will get video). I can then get back into regular
    Vista and reinstall the ATI drivers. I didn't have this problem with Beta2.

  3. Well, standard Vista drives for my video card are useless - my system becomes
    incredibly slow. Even start menu shows only after couple of seconds.
