Yeah! I've had erm, let me think a bit. No issues with ATI drivers or the omega ones upto 3.7. The 3.8's suck but the only problem I can recall is from time to time with the original cat 3.1's my mouse pointer would go a funny color..LOL

No idea how ATI managed to mess up on the 3.8's. All will be fixed later I'm sure.

Damnit I just can't shift this cold...

What was that about shipping Mojo to ATI a while back? It worked real quick!

Det 52's kill mice?

Hey guys. I've just read some posts about the new catalyst 3.8 drivers blowing monitors and cards up. Ever since I got the new det 52 drivers for my 5900, my mouse would vibrate like mad, and just now it blew up! Is this common for the new drivers and how can I stop it?

P.S my keyboard is starting to type on its own grgjriosATISUXsdfjdf

At least Detonators dont blow peoples machines up...
Was it truely THAT long ago that you were aware of the FX overheating problem with 3D MS screensavers like 3D pipes, isn't that a DET driver problem?

So far I've seen anecdotal info from people who aren't any less likely to have fried their gear on an OC run of 3Dmk01/03.

Ever think that now you are part of a giant conspiracy to downplay the advancement of shader effects by this PR of floating fictiiious 'killer' problems? You are a tool of Evil my man! Whereas I'm just an Evil Tool!

Anywo, I'm still not sold, DH's tests prove otherwise, and there's been no clear relationship.

Someone comes up with more than empty words about WHY this is happening, even just a plausible explination, and then I'd give it some weight. Right now I'm just not sold.

Although I am dissapointed that I have that Fast Writes issue with the Omegas (first time ever HAD to turn it off).

Oh for christ's sake drop the Mojo thing. You were so blind to read my reply the other week hmm?

<A HREF="http://www.tomshardware.com/business/20020925/index.html" target="_new">MOJO has MOJO DAY at ATi</A>

Now shut up about that joke already, I've joked along and pointed you to the link before but you seem to have ignored it and went again.
