Re: ati mobility radeon 9000 windows 7 driver!!

that GPU hasnt been supported by ATi for years..... its pretty dead.... you may want to get the Windows XP drivers and have windows 7 try to look for usable drivers in the folder but its not looking good.....

sorry man, that system was just not meant to run windows 7, even vista is a longshot...

Re: ati mobility radeon 9000 windows 7 driver!!

I have been running Windows 7 without issue on a T42 for nearly 12 months now, and I have the same driver issue for the video card. I have read of a person successfully installing a ATi driver on T42 vista with result being extended desktop and Aero.

I really would only like to have extended desktop like I had with this PC on XP.

I am still believing it is possible, anyone have any further suggestions to install a driver solution?

Re: ati mobility radeon 9000 windows 7 driver!!

I actually found the solution i have been looking for for quite a while on another board. This driver gives extended desktop and higher resolution capability for T42, probaly will work also on t41 with Windows 7.

Download this modded driver...
Free File Hosting Made Simple - MediaFire

Extract the driver file to a C drive location
Then open Device Manger
Right click on your Display Driver choose Update Display Driver
Choose Browse My Computer for Driver Software
Via the Browse button, locate the extract driver folder and selct
Windows 7 will automatically find and install the driver

After installation go to Screen Resolution and you will see that it has been updated
Reboot manually to complete installation; after which you will be able to extend desktop and watch MKV video files etc.....

Enjoy!!

FYI, I tried to download but no luck. Any idea what I'm doing wrong. I need this driver for Windows 7. My Dell Inspirion 8600 is confused. It's aspect is reversed.

Re: ati mobility radeon 9000 windows 7 driver!!

I installed the "omega" 3rd party drivers from XP, using compatibility mode.. Rebooting now to see if that helped.. version 4.8.442

I just want multi monitor support again, if XP can do it, so can 7..

GOT MIRRORED screen now!! Thats better, now if I can make my desk 'extended' we're in business..

Win 7 says "ATI Control panel has compatibility issues... search online for solution??" sure, but it won't find a solution.. haha

NOW I can extend my desk to two monitors.. and it seems to work ok.. just like it always did before.. yeha!!

Find the omega drivers at omegadrivers-dot-net

Re: ati mobility radeon 9000 windows 7 driver!!

Hello, my first post here, just registered to share with you this video youtube.com/watch?v=qgs053cHna8
It helped me install my ATI Radeon 9250 agp video card drivers on windows 7 and everything worked fine. Maybe it will also help someone else.
