    :confused: Help Please anyone have any ideas? I Have a Toshiba satellite P30C - RV200E laptop. Everything works fine except it won't install the display driver so I'm stuck on resolution 1024x768 :tears:. I tried out several tips & tricks I found from the net and hoped using the mod modder could fix my problem but sorry to say it still didn't do the trick :tears:

    I used 8-12_vista32_dd_ccc_wdm_enu_72275 with the latest modder but no success.

    Thank You in advance I am willing to try almost anything. :D

    From Canada, Terry

    Cheese it! It's thefeds!

    Couldn't help myself - but now that's out of the way - welcome.

    I had success just this past weekend installing the legacy driver Catalyst 9.3 set available from ATI/AMD Right Here on my desktop 9600XT card. The release notes for that driverset also state that Windows 7 is supported too. You could try the Mobility Modder you have on that set.

    The default driver included in the Win7 RC1 that was initially installed during the installation of the operating system gave me a Windows 7 Experience score of 3.9. After using the Legacy 9.3 Catalyst set, the Experience score rose to 4.4.

    Hopefully, you'll have no trouble using the Mobility Modder on that driverset, but if you do, and you'd like more help, just post again. We'll do what we can!

    Hi Thank you nope unfortunately it didn't work either tried a few times different ways everything say it installed successfully and most has just the display driver. Now I get an error after booting that says error no driver installed or error loading. I can still run everything at 1024 x 768 except for running anything that needs to react quickly it will go into slow motion, example pinball.

    welcome any more ideas. And thank you for so far, I am thinking I will not solve this problem as quickly as I would like to.

    I recently installed Windows 7 on my Acer Aspire 1660 that runs on the ATi Radeon Mobile 9600/9700 GPU. So after installing W7, I ran into the same problem you had. I could only get my resolution to run at 1024x768. so after 3 days of scouring the internet I found a driver that works. On cnet's, I came across the XP driver:
    ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9600/9700 Series

    I ran the program and the installation could not complete because it recognized that I was not running Windows XP/2000. So what I did was try to install the driver directly from the device driver window.

    Here are the steps I took:

    Right clicked on the display adapter --> update driver software --> Browse my computer --> Let me pick from a list on my computer --> Have Disk --> and selected the CX_76831 driver...the and wouldn't you know, it accepted it. after the install, it prompted me to restart. Upon restarting, my resolution was at 1280x800 :D.

    I registered on this forum just to give the good news to you and anyone else with this problem.

    Cheers to all

    Hi, I also had the problem with my amilo A 1630 mobility radeon 9700 drivers for 64 bit Windows 7.

    I didn't find any working drivers for that, but when I reinstalled the Windows with 32 bit, the newest ati catalyst drivers with mobility modder works perfectly.

    I have a Dell Inspiron 9200 with Radeon Mobility 9700 GPU. I had the same problem as you guys.

    I tried both the 9.8 (Vista 32) and 9.3 (XP) drivers referred to here. Modded with the latest Mobility Modder. No go...

    I tried the link that Smart Parts PC referred to, but it was dead. I found a similar driver here. They wanted a fee for the download, so I found it here instead.

    Using Smart Parts method of install I had it up'n running in no time.

    I have had trouble getting the Radeon 9600 driver to install. I downloaded the most recent catalyst control center (9-8_legacy_vista32-64_dd_ccc.exe) from the ATI website and I ran the most recent version of the mobility modder (version The Mod ran successfully. I then Went throught the setup of the Catalyst Control Center, and it finished. However, When I look at my device manager, it still shows that there is a missing driver. It did not install.

    I am running the RTM version of Windows 7 on an HP NC8000 notebook. A few months back I installed the Windows 7 beta, and I was able to get the display driver to work (with aero and everything) by using the same method (although I used an older versin of the driver & modder). I did try using the old versions again but they didn't work either.

    I am thinking that Microsoft changed the OS since the beta in such a way that the driver no longer works. Any ideas?
