    When I instal the newest Ati driver for my Radeon 9700 Pro it is not
    possible to instal the control panel. Even with older driver and cntr panel
    it`s not possible to instal the control panel. When I try to instal the
    control panel I get a message that RPC cannot be changed. When I try to
    change the vid card settings the screen wents blue and there is a VXD

    I run Win 98 SE
    P4 2,8Ghz
    MSI 845 PE MAX 2 mainboard
    Radeon 9700 Pro (Hercules)

    Please help

    Run a virus check, with the latest definition file.

    I did a clean instal of Win 98. So there can`t be a virus.

    No. I did a clean instal. Even I tried to instal Win ME. I got the same
    problem. When I install Win XP there`s no problem at all. I have a dual boot
    system and want to have Win 98 for games for the children. I had to format
    the disk with Win 98 and after that it`s not possible to instal the
    videocard. (control panel)
    I did several times before a re-installation from Win 98 and had no

    What can be wrong. I asked Hercules, but they didn`t answer.

    Very strange. The common denominator would seem to be the control panel
    file. On one occasion, I downloaded about four different driver files
    simultaneously from the ATI server, and a few of them were corrupt.
    Have you tried re-downloading the file?

    I don't see why the hardware itself would be the issue.
