From: Colorado Springs, CO
I am coming back after a hiatus of a few years and I am looking to see if anyone else is running a radeon 9700 with windows XP (home edition with service pack 2). They system worked a couple of years ago when I played it last, but now it does not. Based on review of the tech help, I suspect it is the drivers, which have been updated many times. When I start mech.exe, the program locks up on a black screen and needs to be killed by ending the application. I have tried a half dozen or so of the various earlier drivers that I have found online with no success. If anyone is running with a radeon 9700, can you tell me what version of the drivers you are using and what if any you have the compatibility settings set at for the program (i.e. xxx colors, windows xxx, etc).
Intel 2.651MHz chip
Thanks in advance for any help.
