I couldnt install the catalyst 3.8 drivers for the x700 mobility, until I installed the 3.7 38 meg file. THe 3.8 was like 2 megs, so I guess its just an update. Anyway try that, as Ive been getting really good performance out of my x700. For example I run doom 3 at ultra quality at 1024x768 with 16x anisotropic filtering.
Ha thats funny. Had a carry in today from a self builder. He couldnt figure it out neither could our tech. Solution was reinstalling windows. Problem was that all movies mpeg or avi played in yellowish color. It was really bad. Funny part is if you played the movies in bearshare then closed bearshare then oppened media player it went away. Weirdest thing i ve seen. Reinstall of windows solved the issue quicker then messing with it for hours.
