trouble installing radeon 9200 graphic card

Im not very good with computers. I know my way around em, but i dont know in depth things. i cant run multiple games i have bought, so i checked the requirements and i bought a radeon 9200 (it had morphing and lighting, that was what i needed)

i have a gateway 500s with windows XP and intel 828456g/gl integrated graphics. now, i believe you cannot disable it at the mother board, if there is a way, please correct me. i have installed the ati card and my system is reading it, but when i install the driver, there is an error. my guess is that the intel integrated is trying to block it. i have tried removing the driver in control panel and in the device manager in both normal and safe mode but it seems that it has popped back up and is preventing my ati card from being used... can anyone PLEASE help me?

How many forums to post in?

In reply to: trouble installing radeon 9200 graphic card

I've lost count of how many forums you posted in.

Here's my tip. After about 2 forums, you need to wait for responses since posting across all forums is going to get feedback such as mine as well as I am now unsure if you will be able to converge all 6 forum discussions and reply back on all of them how things are going.

the problem is fixed, and you may remain high and mighty, but only one person tried to actually help instead of someone like you chastizing me for posting to many times with is irrelevent. in any reguard, this site didnt help and i found it on yahoo, so as long as you cant answer my question and you dont have a forum for "video cards" "video card hardware" or "video card software" i guess i was just forced to post in multiple places because you didnt provide me with the correct selection. generic little yahoo was far more help than you.

good riddence

Many see most forums.

If you want to see real help, try cross posting in newsgroups and see what response you get. My post was not to help you with your issue, but to offer some advice to get the most from the CNet forums.

It was indeed true I didn't address your video card issue since that was not what I was offering advice about.

If no one was going to help you, I would post some advice about your issue. As a moderator, I don't have to reply about your issue, but just moderate.

In the future try just two forums that seem closest to your issue and wait a bit. If no answer, the expand to a few more, but as I see in your current forum blast, you haven't shown the courtesy to note that your issue was resolved.
