An ATI video/graphic card is one of the best video card brands in the world. But it also has a lot of compatibility problems with the Windows operating system. Even it’s latest products like Radeon 9200, 9250, 9600, 9800 and so on also has the compatibility problems more or less.
Here is the most common case of the ATI video card error. When you are playing games or working on your computer, the computer freezes up all of a sudden. Then the screen displays abnormally or an error message. That is really a pain in the neck.
In fact, that is not the problem of video card itself. It’s the ATI driver. ATI is famous for its advanced chipset manufacturing capability. But comparing to its manufacturing capability, the driver design and development is still in Stone Age. Of course, that is a joke.
But it is truth that ATI driver development cannot catch up with its hardware. The gap between the driver and hardware limits its video card performance and causes a series of compatibility problems and errors. To solve the problems and improve video card performance, ATI update its driver for every model of its video/graphic card and release on its official website at intervals.
So you just need to download the latest driver from its website and then install it on your computer. The new driver will automatically replace the old one. Actually other devices on your computer also have the compatibility problems more or less. Outdated drivers limit the device performance, therefore the overall computer performance. Updating drivers can effectively solve the device errors and speed up your computer.
