I have a huge problem here: my system was a bit slow (I had a Geforce 4 MX440 64mb) and yesterday (28th august) was a -PC Dump Day- in Amsterdam so I went there and bought a new 3D card.
The card is a Sapphire ATI Radeon 9600XT Edition 256MB. The installation went perfectly and I did a test with a demo of Futuremark’s, I forgot the name… But anyways, that went perfactly so I started Blender 2.34 to see if the new 3D card made any difference.
But when I opened BLender and saw the window with the name and version number of Blender (wich disappears when you move your mouse) my PC freezed totally. My mouse disappeared and not even the NumLock butten or Ctr-Alt-Del worked. After resetting my PC and trying to open BLender again I had the same problem…
Does anybody thow what my problem is and what I can do about it, PLEASE REPLY!!!
Please help me out here
Updating drivers and installing Catalyst drivers haven’t done me much good. Deleting old NVidia drivers and programs did good and a tiny post I found elsewhere gave me the sollution: change the colour depth of the desktop from 32 bits or 64 bits to 16 bits and MY 3d card (Sapphire ATI Radeon 9600XT 256mb) works perfectally with Blender.
So that’s all I did, just lower the amount of colours to 16bits. (By the way I also deleted old NVidia drivers!)
So that’s all folks!
