Going from 64mb to 128mb Radeon 9000
Well a friend of mine was running a 64mb Radeon 9000 on a winxp machine,but it wouldn't run Battlefield Vietnam.I have a 128mb Radeon 9000(also on a winxp machine),and it ran BFV with no problems.Since I recently got a new computer,I figured I would swap cards with him,so he could play the game.
But he is having problems installing the 128mb 9000.The first time he booted with the 128mb,the splash screen would show,but would then go to a black screen when it should have booted to the desktop.He tried removing all ati software,installed the 128mb again,and this time it booted to the desktop.But when windows tried to reconize the card,it went to a black screen again.If he puts the 64mb card back in,the computer boots fine and reconizes the card.
He lives in West Virgina,I live in Michigan,so we only talk over the phone,and can't always talk immediately to troubleshoot(damn work hehe).Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated,since I have had little experience in dealing with video cards.
It is not important if the glass is half full or half empty.What is important,is who has been drinking from MY glass?!?!?
