    I can't install again a decent driver , I get error mesage with omega
    and os or video card not supported with ati drivers.
    Direct3d gives an error message with dxdiag.
    What can I do?
    Thank you.

    Try booting in Safe Mode, and run ATI's uninstall utility (from their website).
    Then install an older Catalyst version (one that specifically supports Win2K).

    If that goes ok, then try updating the driver.

    If nothing else works, you can try reinstalling SP4 and/or DirectX 9.0c.

    I did it.
    Delete everything ati labelled in safe mode
    Install 6.2 catalyst from ati driver
    Delete everything ati labelled in safe mode
    Install last omega driver 4.8.442
    Install directx9c of March 08
    Install SP4
    Now everything seems Ok , except I always get this message by right
    clicking on the desktop

    I boot in reduced (F8) mode in win2000
    I go to thr control panel/system.
    I choose to go to the video driver place.It's the VGA one.
    I stopped it and configure it to auto.
    I boot and it's OK.
    Thank you for help.
