    After installing this card in a perfectly running PC each time I reboot I
    get this error and can not go further.

    What's the problem? Tried contacting ATI but there's no Support Board on
    their site and no support personal outside their business hours. Should I
    stick with NVIDIA cards??

    Anyone with solution??

    Must be a motherboard/PSU/video driver related problem. I know someone with
    a 9800 Pro and it works perfectly. I'd get one myself except I refuse to
    pay $400 for a card that I run games on 20% of the time.

    More likely to be a low/high level software problem rather than a
    hardware issue. The only two hardware issues would be the hard [brand
    and model] drive and for example using a 40 wire instead of an 80 wire
    cable on a modern drive.

    It's more probable that its 'write cache enabled' in either (1) BIOS (2)
    Registry (3) Windblows O/S. I'ts almost 0700 and I have to leave for
    work so no time left, so do a search for the keywords "delayed write
    error ati"

    Hope this helps,

    Everything was fine for 2 years with GeForce cards... It's an ATI BUG! (one
    more) Just do this:

    - select the Advanced Tab then the Settings button under Performance

    - select the Advanced tab on the Performance options tab

    - in the Memory Usage area, ensure the Programs radio button is selected

    - Apply the changes and select OK

    Amazing that ATI did not comment this... it's happening since the 7000
    series if I recall.
    Searched their web site for "delayed write" and found nothing.
