Windows 7: ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9600/9700 Series

ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9600/9700 Series

Hi,

Win 7 (7100, x32) installed driver for this card and generally graphics is OK but I could not find any version of ATI Control Center or Catalyst package. It was some working for that card in XP. I am not sure if it is a source of wake up problem after sleep mode. My notebook wakes up but dispaly is dead. The only way is to reboot. I have studied a lot of posts about wake up problem but no solution so far (no positive change or total disaster including eventaully system restore option).
New versions of Catalyst does not include this card (already 5 years old).
Please let me know if somebody has solved the wake up problem for that card (or has not found any troubles and my judgement is wrong).

regards,
bjs

Since this post is old, I don't know if this will help, but here goes!

1. You need to find a copy of catalyst mobility 8-12. have not had luck with newer versions.
2. you need to get mobility modder
3. follow the directions of mobility modder to mod the catalyst 8-12 drivers.
4. install as usual

as for the wakeup problem, i know what you mean. my solution is:
1. turn off the screensaver. turn off the monitor if you have to.
2. disable standby
3. disable hibernate.

i have this card in a 1st Generation Dell XPS/Inspiron 9100 and it truly is annoying to work with on windows 7

solved

It is quite old issue, however once again happened to be a problem after fresh reinstallation of Win 7 (disk format) and Aero not working at all. Transparency also disappeared.

Three days looking for new driver.
Maybe someone has the same problem - so it is solution:

1. starting from standard VGA installed by win 7 during system installation process

2. install old driver for for XP (delivered by notebook producer); it results with better resolution but not aero and not transparency.

3. download driver for Radeon Pro 9700 - catalyst_8-31-100_vista32_rtm

4. unpack it - it creates folder ATI/SUPPORT/catalyst ...

5. go to control panel, dvice manager, and update manually driver for graphics card browsing to this folder described above.

6. it updates driver asking in the end for restart,

7. restart - Aero is again !!!

enjoy!

maybe it is possible to bypass step 2 but I am not sure.

Radeon Mobility HD 5000 series
What is the difference between the Radeon Mobility HD 5000 series and 4000 series? I know the 5000 supports DirectX 11, but how is this a good thing? What is new? I've heard of Eyefinity, but I don't see how that and DirectX 11 will help at all on a laptop.
