Mobility 2600 HD Catalyst 9.9?

    I have attempted to use mobility modder to get the latest catalyst drivers (9.9 which include support for 2600 series cards) and after completing the install and the required reboot, I get a blue screen for atikmdag.sys

    I've done the driver cleaner route multiple times, have had no luck whatsoever. My system is Vista 32 SP2 with a mobility radeon 2600 HD. Catalyst 9.7 worked, but 9.9 will not, nor will 9.8.

    Any ideas?

    I'm also trying to get the Catalyst 9.9 drivers working on my gateway C-140x tablet.

    It has an ATI Mobility HD 2300.
    I'm running Windows 7 x64 bit.

    After successfully modding the drivers, running the setup & agreeing to install the unsigned drivers, my system boots up to the wrong resolution (1024x768) which should be 1280x768. When trying to access the catalyst control center, I get a window that pops up saying:

    "No ATI graphics driver is installed, or the ATI driver is not functioning properly. Please install the ATI driver appropriate for your ATI hardware."

    Currently the device manager shows:

    "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

    And the properties of the device show:
    Driver Provider: ATI Technologies Inc.
    Driver Date: 8/13/2009
    Driver Version: 8.650.0.0
    Driver Signer: Not digitally signed

    Help would be appreciated.

    Uninstalled the 9.9 drivers and resolution was fine again (drivers listed as running were verified to be the old non-catalyst ones too).

    Just tried downloading the catalyst 9.10 drivers by going to amd's site & saying I had a non-mobility Radeon HD 2600 which gave me the link:

    Drivers & Support | GAME.AMD.COM

    However, after modding & installing these drivers, I immediately got a BSOD!

    This seems to verify the same problem that a couple others have had with the 9.10 drivers. Windows 7 would not boot at all and simply BSOD every time I tried to boot normally. To get to safe mode, I had to press F8 on startup.

    In safe mode, it would not allow me to simply uninstall the old drivers via Add/Remove programs. Instead, I had to goto the device manager & right click on the display adapter. I chose "Roll Back Driver", and let it finish. Then rebooted.

    System came up again fine, driver listed now is:
    Driver Provider: ATI Technologies Inc.
    Driver Date: 4/24/2009
    Driver Version:
    Driver Signer: Microsoft Windows
    Value listed in "Device Description" is: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2300 (Microsoft Corporation WDDM 1.1)

    I've been trying to update my c-141xl tablet pc with the HD 2300 for the last year. The latest drivers I have been able to get on with mobility modder are the 8-12 from 2008. I have the exact issue that TrinitronX first stated with his c-140x.

    Hi guys,

    If you read carefully mobility modder instructions, you will see that it works with desktop drivers, so you should download desktop driver (not mobility driver), extract and when setup begins select "cancel". Turn on mobility modder, do a modification of desktop driver, install driver, restart and good luck.

    I was successful with old dell laptop C610 which has VGA-AGP Radeon mobility. First I did modification on downloaded mobility driver(latest available) and I got BSOD, then I tried with desktop driver and works great.

    Ati catalyst 9.8 is workin ok on toshiba a216 with hd2600, no more atikmdag.sys error when i start the computer.
    Catalyst 10.XX is not working, or 11.XX.
    I must try 9.9, or newer drivers then 9.8.
    If newer drivers then 9.8 will give me this error, i will stick with 9.8 or older.

    PS. I install mainboard drivers 9.8 and modded them with mobility catalyst tool.

    I believe the atikmdag.sys error is caused by an old version of this atikmdag.sys file that the new drivers can't seem to replace.

    Before you install the drivers, follow my latest driver cleaning install below:

    Then download and install the 11.4 drivers I posted here:

    If you do decide to give it another shot, please post back results and let me know if the issue is resolved.

    Good luck !

    What OS, Vista or 7?
    I've got similar laptop (A210-16F) and I've been wondering about changing it's Vista to Win 7 but I've read about your problems with Catalyst and 7 ...

    on both vista and win7, catalyst 9.8 is ok for hd2600 on toshiba.
    10.xx give blue screens.

    Lqforce, on an fresh win7 or vista install, even if i try installing a new driver 10.xx, or 11.xx blue screen appear when i start the computer, first boot in a day.
    If i start comp, then restart, blue screen does not appear.
    Blue screen only appear at first boot from any day.
    i think ati modify something in newer drivers.
    with 9.8, all is good, and i have over a month with good stability, no more blue screens.

    i tried driver game with 9.8, hd live-tv, 3dmark, all is ok.

    update dec 2011:

    now im on win7 64, drivers that work for toshiba hd2600 is catalyst mainboard 9.8 or 9.12, modded with mobility modder.
    Any newer then that crashes with atidag.sys bluescreen or other ati error.
    9.12 is the latest one that work ok.

    update ian 2012:

    win7 64

    catalyst 10.6 is ok with hd2600 toshiba, i have powerplay options in catalyst settings.
    If i try a newer driver then 10.6, like 10.12 for example, powerplay options dissapear from catalyst control panel.
    You could install catalyst mobility 10.6, then:
    install avivo from LATEST VERSION( 11.xx)
    you could unpack latest mobility driver , at installation choose CUSTOM, and install only AMD CODEC.

    Ati has big problems with video SD-HD artifacts in mediacenter, mediaplayer, dvbviewer.
    Best driver that fixed this is 9.8 or 11.4, unfortunely this driver 11.4 gives m bluscreens.

    Hi all,
    First, sorry for my bad English ...

    I am another victim of Toshiba-Ati. :sigh: I have a Toshiba Sat Pro P200 15W with the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600.
    The problem came when I bought a license of windows 7, 64bit (4GB ram expansion also).
    Thanks to Reeven, I'm trying (honestly, without knowing much) resolve the issue. (Toshiba-AMD-ATI does not know, no answer)

    Now I have only installed the 10-6_vista64_win7_64_dd_ccc_enu. No icon, no access to configure.

    Please could you explain how to install the following? (Avivo from LATEST VERSION (11.xx) and You Could unpack latest driver mobility, choose CUSTOM installation at, and install only AMD CODEC.

    I do not find Avivo 11.XX only to install and I can not forward ...

    thank you very much,

    And ... for example, someone who can help me?

    Unfortunately I am a big newbie and in addition, my English ... :rolleyes:

    I'm talking to myself. Now, I have entered all the folders and then I run all. exe that I have found. Now, there's an icon, but you can not configure anything.

    For example, when such a game is launched, it is slowed down, I understand that should be at the generic drivers.

    Ok, Obushnikov, good night and good luck.
