It's easy, just download this driverpacked, cataclyst or whats it called, run it, choose your card from the menu and restart :)

To be absolutely certain you don't waste time over problems: Close down ALL your applications including those that are in the background just in case. Unpack the driver files to a directory & then make sure you go via windows 'Update driver option' in Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager & then by right clicking on the entry under Display adapters, which should be a little icon with your Gfx cards official name on it 'ATI RADEON 9600XT something'. Right click & then select 'update Driver' from the context menu. Follow the process ensuring that you end up at the option where you can state the location of the new driver files (the directory you expanded/unpacked them to). Then select 'next' 'ok' & it will inform you must reboot. Make sure you are not working on something that needs saving & reboot. If all has gone to plan - it is done!

*COULD NOT EDIT PREVIOUS POST* please delete previous one, kind Mr mod / Admin To be absolutely certain you don't waste time over problems:

Close down ALL your applications including those that are in the background just in case.

Unpack the driver files to a directory of your choice,

then make sure you go via windows 'Update driver option' in Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager & then right-click on the entry under Display adapters, which should be a little icon with your Gfx cards official name on it 'ATI RADEON 9600XT something'.

Right click (as I said) & then select 'update Driver' from the context menu.

Follow the process ensuring that you end up at the option where you can choose/select the location of the new driver files (the directory you expanded/unpacked them to).

Then select 'next' 'ok' & it will inform you must reboot.

Make sure you are not working on something that needs saving & reboot. If all has gone to plan - it is done!
