Sounds your drivers need updating.
If not.

Is this scenery part of the MS scenery or add-on, if it's add-on don't use it.

Uninstalling and reinstalling should take a while, you have to clean out all the remaining parts of the sim to reinstall it.
That's why many of the members do a clean install of Windows before they reinstall the sim.

Since they "improved" their website I can't find older drivers either. The sites a mess now and you should help by putting in a complaint.
I'm going to put in one now, I use ATI also.

Anyway, you have an older card so don't use the latest drivers. Use older drivers that were made for your card.
Install the sim, see how it works, if your satisfied keep the drivers you have now or get a better card depending on how old your system is.
The machines manufacturer may have newer drivers, they won't let me in without a password (Dell), I imagine others ore the same.

I found this but don't use it unless you are certain that it's for your card.

hey i was finally doing a "full install".............and while on the 4th disk.........it stopped......and said

Microsoft flight simulator 2004 encounterd a disk error while writing to the file c:\programfiles\microsoft games\flight simulator9\scenery\cities\amsterd.cab

make shure your hard disk is not full, and the file is not in use.

................my cd for flight sim little scratched...you think that might be it?...........my hard drive is not full..........and file cant be in use..
