Default really need help for updating my graphics card...

I don't know anything about updating my graphics card. It's Radeon 9200. I always go to the ati.com site but I'm always lost once I see the Catalyst thingy. What do I download and where do i start off!!! Argh really need help, just bought Half Life 2 see.

Whenever I start the game I always have some engine error. Turned out that my card wasn't updated. So how??? Step by step instructions pretty please!

Thank you.

yandaoben,

If you are using windows XP, download this file and install. Its a graphic driver update for Radeon Family of cards.
http://www2.ati.com/drivers/wxp-w2k-...6a-018719c.exe

Install the latest direct x 9.0 c version.

ATI recommends windows sp2 to be installed , atleast that is what ati says about in the 'note' in its driver update page

If you still cant run the game, get this file . Its MS .net framework. http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...6/dotnetfx.exe
Install the above file, then reinstall your driver file.
