Graphics card incompatibility

I just installed an ATI 9000 pro video card to replace my ATI Rage 128. Blender 2.34 worked great with the Rage card but when I try to start up now, I get a black screen with only faintly outlined windows and so forth visible. Is there a fix for this?

Hi Suncoaster,

What OS are you on?

Have you installed the lastest viideo drivers from for your OS/graphics card? If so, try experimenting with different graphics driver settings: color depth (16-bit vs 24-bit), refresh rates, and resolutions.


Installed a new driver and set hardware accelaeration to “basic” and I’m in business. Thanks for the help.
