Send Article to a Friend

ATI Video Update Fixes Crashes -- Apple has released ATI Video Software Update 1.0, which corrects a few crashing problems with recent Power Macintosh, PowerBook, and iMac models containing ATI RAGE graphics accelerators. The update fixes a system freeze problem on Macs with processor speeds higher than 400 MHz using screen resolutions of 1280 by 1024 pixels, and also when using a high resolution monitor set to display millions of colors. Some applications that crashed when scrolling will operate normally after applying the update. ATI Video Software Update 1.0 is a 1.2 MB download. [JLC]
