Hello everyone,

as you can read here the Upgrade to 10.5.5 brings some very big Graphic Issues!
I tried to play the Game Battlestations Midway and after the a Minute the OSX frozes complete, only a Hardware reset brings help.This is not Game related.I read in other Forums that other Games stuck and all these things a Game can have.
But not only ingame, only using the Desktop or some Applications bring Graphic Issues.

It is definitiely not a hardware problem, its a Software probleme since 10.5.5, you can read this in all Apple Boards over the World and its absolutely only a problem with ATI Graphic Cards!

The only way to pull back this, is to switch to 10.5.4

Thank you, i´ll hope that Apple will help really fast.

    It's not just with ATI cards. I have an NVIDIA card in my Mac Pro and have had nothing but problems since 10.5.5
