    After installing ATI Radeon VE 32Mg video card with software a window screen came up saying, "ATI's desktop manager is being unloaded because an ATI display driver is not currently running." I updated my miniport driver for AGP along with ATI's update through Microsoft & still window screen said same thing. I have an Asus K7M-RM motherboard with 3 PCI slots, 1 AMR slot & 1 AGP slot. This is the first time I used this AGP slot. I also have 2 hard drives(C & D) with C being my boot drive. A tech guy at Asus web site didn't know what to do after the above things tried. Any ideas or solutions to this problem would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    what was your last video card?
    did you totally remove it's software?

    if you can't find an unistall for it you may have to use
    Find
    or
    Search

    Use the text containing box
    and do a search for the name of the card
    and or the chipset

    You just have to search the Windows folder.

    also have a look at the device manager in safe-mode.

    also if you have means to do a clean install without disturbing your current setup it might shed some light on whether it's just some old files causing the problem.

    Good luck
