Will A ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 Be Able To Support W7 ?
Oct 22, 2009
I have a kind of old laptop, a Dell Inspiron E1705, and it has an ATI Radeon x1400 graphics card. I really want to install Windows 7, but I'm not sure if this card will be able to support the Aero interface. Will everything go smoothly?
I just finished installing Windows 7 ultimate, 32x to a separate partition of my hard driveWhen using Windows XP, I have a 1440x900 resolution, and windows says that my graphics adaptor is an ATI radeon mobility x1400. However, when I boot into Windows 7, I have a much smaller resolution, no aero support, and windows says that my graphics adaptor is "VGA standard display adaptor" or something similar to that
I just installed Windows 7 Pro 32-bit on my old IBM/Lenovo T60p and everything is great except for my video card driver... Even though I've downloaded and installed the Windows 7 drivers from Lenovo's website, windows insists on using the standard VGA graphics adapter and wont let me change to the ATI drivers. As a result, I only have access to 16Mb of graphics memory and can't run any of my more graphics-intensive programs. Any ideas?
I have laptop ASUS K50AB, with 2 graphic cards, one is ATI Radeon HD 3200 and it works fine, but another one is ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 Series, and I have huge problems to instal drivers on it.First I reinstaled my Windows 7 Ultimate x64, and all drivers are updated except this one(there is yellow mark on it), I tried to instal it automatic but it says that newest drivers are instaled allready, then I got some drivers from ati website and it still does not work.
I just did a clean install of Windows 7 Professional on my laptop and for the most part everything went extremely smooth. I just have one question, what is the most recent edition of the driver for my GPU? Is it 8.632 as provided by my laptop manufacturers website?
A few teething problems with Windows 7... I recently purchased an Acer Aspire 7535G with Vista - it has two graphics cores - an on-board 3200HD for low power stuff and a more powerful HD 4570. These are controlled by Catalyst Control Center (CCC) and worked fine...
...until I upgraded to Windows 7
- Now Power Express does not seem to recognize either cards although the 3200 appears to be working. When I check the hardware section of the computer, both cards are recognized, but a fault is diagnosed with the 4500 series card - it says the card cannot start - code 10 error
The cards are supposed to switch automatically when the computer is plugged into / out of mains power.
I have downloaded the most recent versions of CCC and the most recent ATI drivers but this has not rectified the problem.
I need the 4570 card. Has anyone experienced similar / suggest a solution??
I recently upgraded a friend's old laptop (Toshiba Satellite A70) to Windows 7, but there are no drivers available for his graphics chip/card.how to properly install it?I'm aware that the 9000 series only supports up to DX8.1 and thus can't run Aero, but that's not a big deal. I merely want the capability to run the machine at its native resolution without having "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" listed in Device Manager.
I get a black screen already right in the beginning (before boot screen) and have no idea how to resolve it. Can't install new driver as I can't even boot Win 7. Can't go into safe mode, as I can't see the menu.
I just bought a new acer (link) and proceeded to install windows 7 (64-bit) straight ahead. I must admit i made a bit of a mistake when i didn't check if the box it got shipped in contained any drivers or such (which it didn't to my surprise!)
Currently got experience with 32-bit Windows 7, but not with 64-bit which I've heard had a rough time with bugs. Because my system is a 64-bit platform i suppose this might be one of the reasons for my problems. On a side note, this system is shipped out with both onboard gfx and an extra card (the ATI 4670 one)
But on to the main issue; Currently my problem with this system is an issue regarding my ATI mobility radeon HD4670 GFX card. (This is the drivers I've tried soo far: ATI Catalystâ„¢ Mobility Display Driver - Directly downloaded from the ati.amd.com site (this is by chance also the latest native win 64-bit driver) http://www.acer.com - Go to the driver section and select the right system (Acer Aspire 8935G).
Sadly there is no windows 7 drivers atm, only vista ones. Without any drivers, this is how my Device Manager list my display units. As you will notice windows update have already found some driver for it. But the Device will not start (This device cannot start. (Code 10))
I have an Acer Aspire Z5610 all-in-one desktop. Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.History: I was getting a blue screen, generally when multitasking and streaming video going.A friend suggested a video card driver upgrade, which did in fact resolve that problem. A few months down the road, the computer would just suddenly shut down. No blue screen. Found and installed an updated driver (8.920.0.0 date 11/9/2011), but didn't resolve problem.The only thing that seems to prevent the shut downs is to change the "theme" to "Windows 7 Basic", without any HD wallpapers. Additionally, moving windows around is not smooth and remnants of closed windows stay on the screen occasionally.Found some threads here that mentioned a conflict between Intel chips default video driver and the ATI driver, but only the ATI card shows up in the device manager.I just assume it's the video card or driver because changes in how the graphics are displayed seem to effect the shutting down. Some have suggested it's the RAM or mother board.
I have xps m2010, it uses notebook graphic mobility radeon x1800. the card is so old that many of the recent GPU software can't seem to read it properly. GPUz was able to see core/memory clock and memory but unable to see temperature or voltage.
GPU meter/PC meter just fails to see it at all, not supported it seems, same goes for GPU monitor or GPU observer, cant see it.
however temperature shows up in Hwinfo but no voltage either. I was able to download ATItool and able to change it's core/memory clock speed but it doesn't have voltage control.
what I want to do is for it to run at a lower VID/clock when idle, something like CPU speedstep or nVidia powermizer. when idle, lower voltage, temp and clock speed, when used, back to highest etc.
driver that will get my Sony Vaio VGN-BX396XP to run its native 1280 x 800 res in Windows 7 - W7 is telling me that its got a 'Generic Non-PnP Monitor on Standard VGA Graphics Adaptor, which it hasn't - it has an ATI Mobility Rareon X1600 (with HyperMemory - nice.). I guess it may be a memory issue, so perhaps I need to upgrade the Graphics card or allocate the Graphics Adaptor with more system RAM?
I have a IBM Thinkpad T30 with a graphics card ATI Mobility Radeon 7500. I have an external monitor plugged up. On xp I can dual split easily! I just installed windows 7, and it doesn't detect the external monitor. I right click desktop, and select screen resolution. I click detect and the only screen detected is my laptop screen (not the vga external screen). I checked the IBM website, and the video drivers are only for windows xp. I tried to install the driver for xp on windows 7, and an error pops up and says "Setup was unable to complete the installation. Try to setup your display adapter with a standard VGA driver before running setup"
I couldn't find the driver ATI Mobility Radeon X200M for windows 7 install Windows 7 Starter on my notebook Samsung r40 (NP-R40K00B/SEK), but standart driver getresolutions only 800x600 and 1024x768. I try to find driver and find "10-2_legacy_vista32-64_dd_ccc", then I install this driver. In directory "c://Program Files/ATI Technologies/ " there aren't any files, but when it's install
My bro just got his laptop repaired in some of the store I don't know where it is but probably the store persuade him to upgrade his OS (he's just there to replace his missing button on his notebook such 'E' button). Suddenly I got told by him that his warcraft III screen is not full screen, this is a problem with ATi video driver or to be precise with Catalyst Control Center.
But after a long search in google and installing this and there and from ATi websites, there is no CCC shown in the taskbar although the installation is success with nothing wrong. I'm sure about this because my HP notebook just got this problem from the very first time I got it. My bro notebook is Toshiba Satellite M300. So any CCC installation for ATi HD3400 mobile that match in windows 7 x64?
So I had just upgraded my laptop (Dell Inspiron E1505) to Windows 7 and was using the Windows Update to get all the drivers for my hardware. All of them worked except the ATI Mobility Radeon x1300, and when i try to download/install it, it just comes up with unknown error code 80200053. Now my computer is stuck with low resolution and using a generic PnP standard VGA Graphics Adapter driver and I can't find a way to get my video card to work. Any way to install the driver? I tried downloading the driver online, but those versions are not compatible with Windows 7?
I downloaded some new drivers and updating everything was going good my screen went black my resolution went down then it went black again. it just stayed black then i got the blue screen and i cant start up windows.
As we had read in this forum, ATI has dropped the support for the DirectX 9 graphic cards like mine, the Radeon X1950.
This means no working Windows 7 drivers and no longer support for OpenSuse!
I had installed the Catalyst x64 drivers 9.1 on Windows 7 RC x64 but the driver is quite erratic: If I move the mouse over an icon, normaly the tooltips will be shown as long as the mouse pointer is over an icon. If I move the mouse pointer away, the tooltips should go away.
But not with Catalyst x64 drivers 9.1: After some time of working I have a lot of vodoo toolstips on the screen, which cannot been eliminated.
There is a workaround: Change the Screen Refresh Rate from 59Hz to 60 Hz or back from 60 Hz to 59Hz to vodoo tooltips go away.
I had the same phenomenon also on the last Catalyst x64 drivers for Vista (9.3), so I also switched in Vista x64 SP2 back to version 9.1.
What should I do? Throw away the Radeon X1950 which in under 3 years old now and purchase a new graphic card?
After that lousy support of ATI I don't have so much motivation to purchase a ATI card again, but they have pricy offers (Radeon 4890, 4870 or the inexpensive 4770, which is announced but no dealer has it in stock at the moment.
Or should I wait up to end of the year when DirectX 11 graphic cards are available? I also own a Nvidia 8800GTS in a second machine, same age but no problem with drivers for Server 2008 R2! Can you recommend a Nvida card and which model?
Normally I need support for 2 digital ports (flat screens) and support for the newest Windows and OpenSUSE / Ubuntu versions!
How can i resolve the problem with my wi-fi, "no audio output device is enabled and my "ATI Mobility Radeon HB 5470" is not working but i have an update driver and it does not install properly. i am using acer aspire 4820TG.
