Re: ATI Catalyst™ 8.12 Display Driver for Windows XP

I am also experiencing the same issue with 8.12. I have Windows XP SP3 and an ATI Mobility Radeon 9600. The package installer complains I am not in administrator mode and doesn't install. I am running as a local administrator account.

Re: ATI Catalyst™ 8.12 Display Driver for Windows XP

I have only had this problem with the Ati Mobility version of 8.12. I was able to work around it like the other guy, going into device manager - manually installing the driver and then running the Catalyst control center installer.

On my desktop machine, with an Ati HD 2600 pro, I had no issue installing under Windows XP SP3 (Media Center Edition 2005). So its only on my laptop, using XP Professional SP3, using the Ati mobility version of 8.12 (you initially download a little download tool, that then downloads a driver from ATI with this tool and launches the install after completion).

Re: ATI Catalyst™ 8.12 Display Driver for Windows XP

I've noticed one thing since installing this driver. If I scroll to quickly in EI7 I get a VPU recovery. Really don't know what's causing this. It's happened a few times. Only seems to happen with IE7 as well, I've tried to duplicate with FF but it just doesn't happen.

Though, whenever I have a VPU recovery it all goes back to normal again, not like when it happened with an older driver and I got only an 8-bit display back with lots of banding and had to reboot to fix.

Might be a bug, your Vista is updated correct?

Re: ATI Catalyst™ 8.12 Display Driver for Windows XP

I have XP Sp3, not Vista and yes, it's updated. I'm almost positive that it's a driver issue since it didn't happen with the last 3 sets of drivers at least.
