Trying to find the correct driver for my ATI Technologies Inc. Rage 128 Pro Ultra GL AGP. Iíve downloaded the Rage 128 Pro from www.ati.com (http://www.ati.com) but it comes back as incompatible when I try to install it. Any help is greatly appreciated. Iím working on a Dell Optiplex GX 240.

Are you sure this is the file you downloaded: http://www.ati.com/support/products/pc/r...O&cmdNext=GO%21 (http://www.ati.com/support/products/pc/rage128pro/winxp/rage128prowinxpdrivers.html?cboOS=Windows+XP&cboProducts=RAGE+128+PRO&cmdNext=GO%21)

If so, and it fails to install, please post the error message, and I'll see if I can help you further. Otherwise, I'd suggest emailing ATI tech support, or checking the forums at www.rage3d.com (http://www.rage3d.com)

Good luck

Yep - it gave me the same error "the display driver is not compatible with the display adapter(s) installed in your system"

Since it's a Dell OEM, the ATI driver must not want to install. Here's a link to the Dell driver for XP, but it's from Oct. 2001, so I don't know if it's going to be any better than the one that comes with XP. http://support.dell.com/us/en/filelib/re...lter&devid=1348 (http://support.dell.com/us/en/filelib/results.asp?sid=PLX_PNT_P4_GX240&lang=EN&lib=6&os=WW1&searchtype=filter&devid=1348)

Another option is to try the Reference driver from ATI: http://www.ati.com/support/drivers/powered.html

That's all I can think of, if you're still having troubles, I'd contact Dell customer support.

Good luck.
