download the latest ones from the manufacturer's website - the drivers on discs are normally very old...

what is your agp card?

..or sometimes windows update offers better drivers - normally in the 'optional' section...

i've just remembered that windows 7 sometimes has a problem with agp cards.

i'm trying to search for an answer, but the stupid forum search function says that the words 'ati' and 'agp' are too short to search for

hopefully another forum member will be along soon who knows more...

good luck!
