ATI AGP Xpert@Play video card with OS/2
Posted on 1998-04-02
I have an Xpert@play video card (8mb - AGP) which uses the 3D Rage Pro Chipset from ATI Technologies. When I install the OS/2 drivers on Warp 4.0 with no fix packs according to instructions and re-boot, my screen has garbage on it. For instance the windows have "extended" edges, the icons eventually become "hashed" and the font seems to be large for the space alotted to each letter (ie. instead of OS/2 SYSTEM, I might see O/2SYTEM, and not alway the full characters!). This happens at all resolutions! I called ATI and no one has reported this problem. The video driver install correctly identifies the card as a 3D Rage Pro, but incorrectly identifies the AGP as PCI. This did not bother me, but may be the root of my problem. The video card works fine under Win95 and OS/2 in straight VGA mode (no special drivers installed). If the problem is that OS/2 doesn't support the AGP, when will it?
