  • ATI 7500 graphics card question

    I just bought a new graphics card to replace my crappy one. I wanted to find one that would work with my linux os to, but I misread the linux driver page. It seems they have a driver for the ATI9500 but not the ATI7500 PCI.

    So my question is, does anyone know a OS that supports ATI7500 graphic cards or am I just stuck with this stupid chipset ugh.

      Yes, but for some dumb reason it wont show the site for me. That's why I asked.

      Maybe you can post the answer to the question instead of a link. Obviously.

        Sorry if I came off rude just was pissed. Ill tell you a story on why. yay!

        Im another Computer Science major and I had a project to build a program from a programming lang we havn't studied already. I chose DELPHI! Being im working with it already.. So everyone was building gay FTP programs, calcs, prob calendars and whatnot. I decided to go all out and try to make a FIREWALL OooOOoo. I wanted this to be the ELITE scriptkiddie firewall of choice for all little brats. So like I added in security for the firewall. It was password protected so noone could reset the settings. Along with that, it blocked out all sites/addys that wasn't on the list. Well defcon and some others was on the list. So that means i can only see those sites. I rebooted my pc and what do you know.. I guess the var for the password reset it self, didn't save correctly and I was screwed. I couldn't uninstall it being I set it not to unless you have the password YAY!.

        So there is my gay story on why I couldn't see any sites but this site and a few. All is well now, got around it and working on my stupid bug that is already pissing me off. :(

        Thanks for the help though, your my new hero!
