Hi @jacek,

Your video driver is an antique - 8-17-2009 - almost 9 years old. I’d start by trying to find an update to this. You might start first with the manufacturer of your laptop.

The last driver update for the HD 2600 XT was published in 2013


The card is now considered legacy by AMD. Maybe time to update the card as well?

@nathanletwory, because the word “Mobility” is used in the driver description, I’m assuming a laptop here.

Ah right, I missed that word - I was looking at the desktop series. Well, still a legacy card even by AMD standards.

It’s iMac :slight_smile:

Hi @jacek,

I don’t know of its possible to upgrade the video system in an iMac. You’ll need to contact your Apple dealer.

But, I’d start by first trying to get an updated video driver installed, no matter how old it may be.
