Cool. Good idea. Starting fresh is the way to go since you're having problems. You can have full confidence that the driver package I uploaded for you is good. It will not mess anything up. Good luck to you!

"Supports AGP 3.0 Including 2X/4X/8x AGP Data Transfer"

Go into your bios and make sure your AGP slot is set to run at 8x. You may enable fast writes. Also make sure AGP is the default first video device.

Disable any onboard video in bios if there is an option to do so. Make the AGP Aperature size 128 MB.

Failing all that, please post a screenshot of your device manager in Windows. Show me all of your system devices.

Sorry hijacking... if I can get your thoughts on this
I had my 3850 Saphire running on my old P4 EE System, with the AGP hot fix drivers downloaded from the Sapphire tech site. That was until the PSU went after replacing the PSU with a better one I start to get the Code 43 error. I ended up re installing Win7 on a new partition and windows would see the 3850 but still gave the Code 43. I took the Video Card back to the store and was refunded. There is new one there they shipped in for me to buy. Should I give the new card a try? I am really worried about getting the code 43 again. But I really do not want to scrap the old system
