It was sound like when you used ATI Driver version 10.11, you could not found ati2mtag.sy_ and ativvamv.dl_ and you copy from 11.7 driver..
Is it miss understand for me ?
If it is so, you must use 10.11 folder's file, because these file exists in folder.
If you have installed .Net 2.0SP2 in your PC
Please use the Calalist Control Center and change manually the GPU Fan Speed about 40%.
Then the GPU temperature will go down about 40 C degree.
Sorry, I do not understand. What is wrong and dangerous? What you quoted below?Or, what immediately followed the section you quoted?
It is wrong.(and dangerous)
I tried ati1011w2k (edited [according to BWC's directions]) and got two missing file errors during installation, went ahead anyway, and wound up with a driver that crashed immediately during boot. On the second time, I found the first missing file in a folder one level down, and the other in a folder in the ati11-07w2k subdirectory (from the other version). I was able to direct the installer to these files so it accepted them (these were ati2mtag.sy_ and ativvamv.dl_) and then completed without error.It is the second quote from the same post that describes how Windows 2000 is presently running with the new graphics card.
It was then that I turned to ati11-07w2k, which loaded without errors, allowed the OS to boot without a crash, and then produced a normal Desktop.
I only tried to install the ati1011w2k (edited) driver twice, and after noting the Desktop display (see image in original post) I thought it would be a good idea to go to a different and unmodified (by me) BWC driver, to see what would happen.
Incidentally, unlike the previous attempt, I was not presented with a blank 'Models' box during driver installation, so the earlier problem did not arise.
In other words: the ASUS EAH5450 SILENT graphics card is now installed, and is working equally well, whether I boot into Windows 2000 Professional or Windows 7 Professional.
In Windows 2000, all graphics functions are normal, just as with the X300 card, except that the periodic system crashes are gone. The GPU temperature for the EAH5450 in Windows 2000 does not exceed 51ºC, and is occasionally less.
Did you mean to say there could still be some problem in Windows 2000, that could cause 'damage'?
