    Hey guys, first post here.

    I recently came across this://larsmichelsen.com/windows/opengl-in-windows-7-with-legacy-ati-geforce-x1900-gt/ which lead me here to download the mobility modder because I cant get my ati x1900xt video card to work now that i upgraded to windows 7. I have been following these steps that are in the link but i will post them here. the second task is whats stumping me so far as I can not figure out when that black screen comes up. Can you guys help me please

    • Download the driver 9-3_vista64_win7_64_dd_ccc_wdm_enu.exe from the ATI driver page COLOR=#807d7a]URL[/COLOR])
    • Start the regular setup but cancel after it extracted all files (When the black window occurs)
    • Then download the Mobility Modder COLOR=#807d7a]URL[/COLOR])
    • Installed the Mobility Modder to “C:\Program Files (x86)\MobilityDotNET”. Then download a patched MobilityDotNET.exe COLOR=#807d7a]URL[/COLOR])
    • Start the Mobility Modder “C:\Program Files (x86)\MobilityDotNET\MobilityDotNET.exe”. In the Mobility Modder set the path pointing to the extracted driver “C:\ATI\Support\9_3_vista64_win7_64_dd_ccc_wdm_enu” and hit the button “Modify”. After that close the Mobility Modder. You may also uninstall it
    • After that move to the directory “C:\ATI\Support\9_3_vista64_win7_64_dd_ccc_wdm_enu\Driver\Packages\Drivers\Display\LH6A_INF” in explorer and open CH_76829.inf in notepad. Search for “[ATI.Mfg.NTamd64.6.0]” in the file and replace it with “[ATI.Mfg.NTamd64.6.1]“
    • Now open the device manager (Windows > Control Panel > System > Device Manager) and move to “display adapter > Radeon X1900 GT”
    • Right click on the device and a click on “Update Driver Software > Browse my computer for driver software > Let me pick… > Have Disk… > Browse to “C:\ATI\Support\9_3_vista64_win7_64_dd_ccc_wdm_enu\Driver\Packages\Drivers\Display\LH6A_INF” > Select CH_76829.inf
    • Now simply install the OpenGL driver

    This is wrong. Don't try to replace the driver. Simply run the C:\ATI\Support\9_3_vista64_win7_64_dd_ccc_wdm_enu\Setup.exe
    with administratative priviledgies and restart the notebook after finishing the setup. Enjoy it! :)
