    I have a Radeon 9600 Series AGP video card. Off from a fresh install off the
    DVD Vista loads up MS WDDM drivers. When i go into hardware profile it tells
    me that the device could not start and gives me a Code 37 error. When i load
    ATI's drivers LDDM for Vista, i get a Code 43 saying that the drivers could
    not start. If i load up Win XP drivers the card works fine but that dosent
    make sense. I currently have it on a dual boot system with each operation
    system (Vista and XP) on their own physical drives. I have a Intel P4 2.4 GHz
    w/ a !G DDR ram. My R9600 has 128MB Video Memory. I have enough space on my
    hard drive as it is a WD 160G 7200RPM drive. Any suggestions to getting
    either the WDDM or LDDM drivers to work? I could use the XP drivers but then
    i wont get the AERO theme which needs the WDDM or LDDM drivers. Thanks in
