Try these: ATI Catalyst? Legacy Display Driver

If they fail, try these (or maybe try them first, they worked flawlessly for me on a 9800Pro for months so it should be fine for a 9600XT ): ATI Catalyst 9.3. I'm not sure what version is on that machine now, I can look in the morning if needed.

Try the 9.3 then, those were the last Catalysts before 9600 cards were moved to legacy support and as I said, they worked really well on my 9800Pro, which is a card from the same generation as yours.

Re: old school Sapphire radeon 9600xt 256mb. what drivers?

I think that AGP hotfix is just for HD 2000 cards and newer, that's how I understood the matter and I've never had problems with any driver with the old 9800Pro. I Googled your problem and couldn't find anything definitive, but you may try to install the latest DX, apparently it sometimes gets messed up.

Re: old school Sapphire radeon 9600xt 256mb. what drivers?

hotfix isn't required.

I've 2 machines here with completely different ATI Radeon 9600XT's... both are 128mb though.

the 256mb versions were highly uncommon.

the 9.11's work great so i'm guessing there is a possibility that the drivers are not detecting your video card correctly and it may be due to the extra memory on board throwing it off or something.

Have your tried any games to see if they give you any form of error?

The 9.11's/9.3's.8.12's and below would be your best bet, just started working down the line.

It may sound weird, but have you installed the latest chipset drivers for the mobo?
