ATI Radeon 9500, Asus P4B266, Windows XP Home
Posted on 2003-03-26
I tried to install an ATI Radeon 9500 Pro on my Windows XP Home computer. I have an Asus P4B266 motherboard with an Intel 2.0a chip. No matter how hard I tried, it would not load. It crashed the computer. I removed it, removed the drivers and tried 4 or 5 times but it would not load.
I currently have an nVidia Geoforce4 MX 440 that works fine.
When I called the vendor that I bought it from to tell them the problem, they said that sometimes videocards are defective and they gave me an RMA.
My question is, shouldn't I be able to support the ATI Radeon 9500 Pro on my configuration?
I have never really received a name brand, top-of-the-line piece of hardware that didn't work.
Any insight would be appreciated.
