    I decided to buy the ATI Radeon 64mb video card thinking it would obviously be better then my onboard. Well, I think I thought wrong. A lot of the times games are more choppy and sometimes freeze. I have the latest drivers installed but still can't figure out what's wrong. The only game I have seen that looks really nice is Half-life. I buy a lot of games and most of them are brand new requiring no more then a 32mb and recommending no more then a 64mb.

    I have atached the dxdiag.txt file to help anyone diagnose the problem.

    Did you deinstall the onboard video chip and disable in BIOS-setup or change the jumper on the motherboard?
    Here you can check if your video card installation was properly.

    Yes I have done all the right procedures. Also, I checked the display adapters in the control panel and it shows only the Radeon 7000. I was hoping your info was going to help because sometimes I miss the simple things, but unfortunately the problem is still at large.

    What else do you have on components? Motherboard (model), RAM (how much), other PCI cards?

    I have included the info below but would like to say I may have found something interesting. When looking through system in control panel I noticed that under Other Devices, Video Controller (VGA) has a '?' with '!' over top of it. It said the drivers for that device are not installed but when I tried to install the drivers it couldn't locate the hardware to go with it. Anyways back to the video card....

    Other devices in device manager with a '?' in a yellow circle means driver is not properly installed.
    What does it show in device manager under 'Display Adapter'?
