    Hello all, I installed vista 64 on my iMac last night. It's the 2007 20" 2ghz model with the ati 2400. Everything went without a hitch all drivers installed and running great except....

    I went to see the performance index and everything was late 4's and 5's except gaming performance and aero performance they are both listed as a 1.

    My screen rez is running at 1680 and i tried an hd video on the web and it ran fine. Is this normal or a video driver issue?

    also it does show in device manager as an ati 2400xt

    It's happened to me before, granted this was earlier last year and the glitch hasn't come up since then. I have an 8600M GT (512) and it gave it 1's but games/aero ran fine. It's just a glitch, nothing to worry about.

    Have you ran Windows Update by chance?

    I did run all the windows updates. I will try a 3d game tonight can anyone explain how to get an updated driver installed? The driver date is from 2007

    The hardware manufacturer usually supplies an updated driver, and those drivers usually go to Microsoft to be digitally signed.

    If Window's software update doesn't work, try going to the manufacturer's website or search the Apple Support forums for driver links.
