ThunkConnect32

RUNDLL32.EXE - Entry Point Not Found.   The procedure entry point ThunkConnect32 could not be located in the
dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll.

You need to update your display drivers. More info here:

All of the references I have seen have not been with Windows XP.

I have a Radeon 9800 Series with a Radeon 9800 SE AGP (0x4148) chipset.

My video driver is ati2mtag.sys  version 6.14.10.6512.   I cannot find any update on the ATI site.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Hi johndix2  the best drivers are the default on the cd that came with your card.
Roll back feature in windowsxp allows to roll back the drivers.
If there is errors of any kind it is not always fixed by updating butrather using drivers that windowsxp will accept.

See if these help.
You can also run a dxdiag from start run type in that, then run the display dxdiag will let youknow what if any the problems are.

Tip save as so that you have an installer copy backup for another time.
I always keep my drivers installers.

Thank you.

I downloaded and ran that program - the files it offered were earlier than those installed.

Yep I was aware they are earlier than the current drivers you have, maybe the drivers you are using are not compatible?
Otherwise I would suggest installing the card again from scratch.
Do you have an onboard mainboard video card you can move your monitor over to so that you can take teh ATI out.
The two links above one shows how to install the card.
I have seen issues with ATI cards and some simply will not work properly with certain mainboards.
The only solution for the unfortunate owner was to buy a different card, yet the ATI can work pefectly on other mainboards.
It is just one of those things.

Thank you.    It doesn't happen *every* time I boot up, and the computer seems to work OK anyway, so I'll just leave things as they are.
