radeon 2400Xt high cpu problem on vista


Standard Member
i have a sapphire 2400xt and even on a fresh install of vista it sends the cpu to 100% as soon as the desktop starts, this is before i even get chance to install the drivers.

On the same machine running XP it works OK and on vista using the onboard xpress200 graphics instead its ok

In task manager there is no process showing that its using all the cpu but the cpu graph shows it constantly at 100% and the pc is unusable

Anyone had this before?

I have the same card in Vista with no problems. No need to go back to XP, if you're using Media Center its much nicer in Vista !
Change your drivers removing the old ones completely first.

^ I agree. I have the exact same card with Vista 64 & they work together fine.
