Hi. This is my first thread ever. I will try to explain my problem. I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop, with Windows XP, and i updated it, installing Windows 7 Home Premium. Everything works perfect, the only thing that is not working properly is my graphics card. Its an Ati Mobility Radeon X300 with 64mb. The problem is, that Windows 7 says its only a 32mb card. I dont know if it is a driver's issue, or what. It worked just fine with Windows XP, and even when i tried Windows Vista for a month. It worked well. The problem is that when i play, the old games i used to play like MVP Baseball 2005, Halo Ce, Age of Empires III, stuff like that, the games frizzes too much it is imposible to play. I installed the drivers from Dell's website for the video card, and tried the driver offered in Windows Update too. Nothing works. I searched the internet for months and i couldnt find someone with the same issue, W7 recognizing the video card with half the memory it has. I think that might be the problem. No W7 drivers available for this card on ATI's website either. I would appreciate any help since nobody has been able to help me, not even " IT's friends " :=( everything works perfect but id love to play my games since i cant afford buying a new laptop with a better videocard and i wont go back to XP! Or is this the only way this card will work with W7? with half the memory?
