@stormy13

the only things in the Other devices are 3 things listed as Video Controller , Video Controller (VGA compatible) and Ethernet controller. They are shown as yellow question marks and the PC sez that their drivers are not properly installed. I will try to fix this and I restored to 9550 since Rage wasn't working.

Some forums have restriction if you are a very new member but I'm not sure if this one does. Click "User CP" up top and on the left side there is "edit avatar" and "edit signature."

do the changes and once you're done click save changes.

There may also be a avatar size or resolution restriction which should be checked.

Much better to just list your specs here,

than trying to get some sig picture to work that those that have "show signatures" disabled in their own profiles won't even see.

Also make sure you install the motherboard chipset drivers before trying to install the video card driver.

Another probleem I've noticed.... when I try to install the ATI driver again, after the driver is installed, an error called "Zero Display Service Error" pops up. After that, the instalation continues normally. A reboot and I'm back to where I started. After I did some googling I found out that there were several people with the same problem on ATI graphics card...

It's a very important point that this is a Windows 7 forum. The fixes for this problem under Windows 7 are nothing like the ones for XP, and with how good Windows 7 is once you go for it you will wipe out all your previous memories of older versions of windows. On this forum we probably remember less about XP than we know about Windows 7, and that will impact how much we are able to help you. For instance, Windows 7 has an impressively reliable set of default drivers for nearly all hardware and you rarely need to specifically install things (unless you want special features). It's also particular in graphics drivers in that Windows 7 doesn't have to reboot after: the graphics is now outside the Kernal.


In this case at least part of the general solution still applies. Load up save mode, UNINSTALL your graphics card drivers from the device manager, you will probably need to restart after, again in safe mode. It won't come up with a blank screen, it will use it's default most basic driver, just as it would if you put a new card in first time.

Make sure the driver you have is windows XP32 compatible: ATI in particular make generic drivers which are less efficient but compatible with many cards. I also advice you DO NOT install the Catalyst Control Centre yet. It's not mandatory, and most users actually don't use the features it provides, it is very prone to errors and compatibility problems and so all it is is a waste of system resources and a risk. On the install only select the drivers.

If this still has problems after a reboot, repeat this with an older ATI driver, stepping back 1-2 versions. if again it doesn't work try one 3-4 versions older. If still not tell us and we'll try and help you find if it is a different issue.

I'd also recommend check the forums of the card manufacturer (not all radeon cards are made by ATI, many are made by sapphire, etc and are not always compatible with all the driver versions: you may have hit a common issue). Also can you put more detail into your system specs: The exact model of your memory sticks, what type of fan and heatsink you have, hard drive manufacturer and model, and very important for this one: your PSU model. This problem is in theory causable if you lack the power to drive your graphics card
