    ATi Catalyst Mobility 11.12 display drivers for notebook computers (13/12/2011)

    These drivers should work for all notebooks with a compatible ATi GPU (See supported devices list below).
    This is especially useful for (but not limited to) notebooks manufactured by Toshiba/Sony/Acer/Panasonic in which the ATi Mobility Download Utility is blacklisted, preventing users from installing the drivers from ATi website.

    D. Run Windows Update and install all software updates for your operating system.
    2. Perform complete uninstall of your previous drivers :
    A. Go to 'Add/Remove Programs' , select the ATi drivers package and click Modify. Use ATi's 'Express uninstall all ATi software'.
    B. Reboot your computer.
    C. Install Driver Sweeper v3.2.0
    Driver Sweeper v3.2.0 Download Link
    Run it and remove all ATi files.
    D. Reboot yet again.
    3. Download the driver for your system, using the links posted above. Simply run the installer and follow the instructions on the screen.

    4. When setup completes, you'll be asked to reboot for the last time. Do it instantly and without delay.

    Am I the only one who is still stuck on CCC 10.5? Yes, 10.12 works, but GPUz, Afterburner, GPU Tool, and everything else shows my core and memory at 0 MHz. If I want to be able to use Afterburner to overclock, I have to stay on CCC 10.5.

    Link works great otherwise.

    Done everything according to the instructions, including Driver Sweeper, safe mode, rebooting, etc. Sadly, my result on Acer Aspire 8935G with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670 is...

    not working.

    During install I saw a warning that incompatible VGA adapter is disabled. Upon checking in Device Manager in Vista 32, I see that indeed the HD 4670 has been disabled by the installer. Upon rebooting, the Catalyst Control Center is not responsive.

    Last option, manual install, failed as well.

    Sounds like a problem in Vista , related to DirectX 10.1 .
    What drivers were you using prior to 10.12 install?

    Do you have Vista SP1 installed? or SP2?

    You should uninstall Vista service pack and try the driver again.
    If you plan on doing so, remember to backup your system first.

    "What drivers were you using prior to 10.12 install?"

    These from here.

    "Do you have Vista SP1 installed? or SP2?"

    Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 32-bit.

    It´s a brand new laptop with SP2 pre-installed.

    I am trying to find a newer version of the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670 driver because the picture on the monitor gets degraded in quality progressively the more time goes from the system boot-up. Sometimes it is only showing me solid white, then green, then red, then blue, etc... all across the monitor, upon booting up. I suspect hardware failure, but am hoping that it is a driver issue. Do not want to lose access to laptop because of important work I really need it for right now.

    Thank you.

    Problems during boot time are always hardware related. The drivers don't load until windows does, so I suggest you send it for repairs before it fails.

    Also, it's time to upgrade to Win7 .

    Not during boot time. It boots fine. I log onto Vista and all. The problems start couple of minutes AFTER I´ve booted up, logged in, started working, etc.

    Also, I tried 10.11 version, from this post in another thread. Sorry to say... same result. No go.

    However, aware that it might work for someone else. It does not for Acer Aspire 8935G, Vista 32-bit, though. Thanks anyways.

    As for upgrading to Windows 7... wish I had the time. Vista will have to do for now.

    I followed the steps and it wouldn't install anything but the install manager (not even CCC). So I used Mobility Modder and ran the exe @ C:\Ati\Support and it worked. Vista, 32bit.

    @ Mineiro

    Great to hear. Which ATI card do you have? Which laptop? I tried Mobility Modder on Acer Aspire 8935G, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670, Vista 32-bit.

    No joy.

    Again, everything according to the instructions here. To the letter. But no.

    Oops, forgot such basic details:

    HD4650

    It's the HP dv6-1180ep.

    Also, my old post is wrong. I actually manually installed after using DriverSweeper (using device manager). After Vista fell back to the generic driver, etc. Running the .exe at C:\ATI\Support did nothing.

    Nice. So manual install via Device Manager, after uninstall and running Driver Sweeper is another way to go.

    This probably means no Catalyst Control Center. Only driver gets installed, I presume. No way to control RGB color balance, 3D settings, etc.

    I assume that if you install the driver using setup.exe afterwards it'll install CCC (it left the driver untouched before, after all). Haven't tried it, though.

    Re : ATI Catalyst 10.12 For Toshiba/Sony/Acer Notebooks - Get it here!

    Many thanks LQDForce, i could upgrade my 7 months old Dell drivers, i won about 10 FPS in 3D applications.

    However my ATI Mobility HD 550v is detected as a HD 4650 in the device manager, i guess it's normal : ATI Mobility Radeon HD 550v - Notebookcheck.net Tech

    Now I wonder if there is a simple way to stay updated, I do not want to be stuck at the next release of drivers, have you done something special ? What is the source where you can find these drivers ?

    I look forward to your reply and sorry if my English is not "perfect".

    Is anyone doing a version for Windows XP x64?
    DH Modder doesn't seem to work with the lastest versions.

    Cheers

    Is it normal to display memory as:
    Memory Size 2231 MB
    Memory Type HyperMemory

    And not mention the physical memory?

    It's how much system memory it can potentially allocate, in the event that this is required and the resources are available.
