hi guys, my dad's pc here has an old ati 9800 pro with 256 ram, and it has a problem with blender when in textured object mode, in that it fails to select objects, but has little or no
trouble in solid mode. my brother's old nvidia card doesn't have any problems that we're aware of with blender. iirc both cards have recent driver versions (last updated before
we lost our broadband a couple of months ago)
does anyone know if newer ati cards have any problems with blender? we're thinking of getting an ati 4870 1gb ram.
kat suggested the following on his forum, although I haven't had a chance to test this yet:
That problem sounds familiar... could be the result of a 'dirty' install. Try uninstalling and cleaning out the previous drivers - uninstall the drivers and the hardware
device from Device Manager. Reboot and let the PC find and use the default device (800x600 iirc). Once it does that, shutdown and bootup *then* install the new drivers.
