Windows 7 Home - 64 Bit
 
 

Brink -

There has been some traffic, in this forum, about the ATI drivers referenced in this post, that don't completely install. I have a HP Laptop dv5-1125nr with Radeon HD 3200 graphics. (1) I tried installing the ATI beta drivers referenced in the post. (2) The install hangs. (3) Used windows Task Manager to stop the install. (4) Went to the Device Manager. (5) Found Display icon. (6) Found and highlighted the installed Microsoft driver. (7) Right-click, selected update the driver, (8) When the option to give a driver for install came up, (9) Browsed to and found the driver left by the failed ATI beta install, (10) Highlighted it, (11) Navigated to the list of drivers that windows allows for install, (12) Selected " ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics (Pre-release - WDDM 1.1) " driver and installed it. Now when I right-click the desktop and select the Catalyst Manager - I can make all the adjustments and see the Video Memory allocation 2D, 3D, etc. I sent feedback to ATI - that by the way is available for all users of the Catalyst Manager on the 1st page of the Manager. I have wanted to share what I found to help others that have had trouble installing these drivers. God's Speed - Patrick C

If I can ask... where exactly does this install hangs? Mine stops at "Enumerating source media for installable packages" it "Analyze" step after selecting custom install.

GHad - Hello! The place you noted in your message is exactly where the install hangs.

Thanks for your answer. So where on your hard drive did you find the driver exactly when updating via device manager? I had no luck when selecting the ATI directory with "Search subfolders" checked. I also tried various subfolders with no effect. It always says, my actual driver is up to date :-(

GHad - In the post I made above to Brink - in steps (11) & (12) - browse to Drive:\ATI\beta_w7-64_8-56-1-081203a-74289\Packages\Drivers\LH6A_INF\CH_73489. When You browse to that file when Windows allows you to present a file - even though there are multiple files in that directory - when you navigate to that directory - it will show the driver I specified in the post to Brink.

Windows 7 Profesional 64bit
 
 

Well I could not resolve this ATI driver issue...

I was using the on-board HD 3200 video in Vista64 when I upgraded to Windows 7 and that worked...
But yesterday I threw in an HD 3650 card and could not get the drivers to load...
Not even the beta 7 driver listed above...even tried Patrick's instructions to no avail...

My only option was to re-install Vista64 and then install the drivers for the card...
Once I finish getting everything loaded and setup tonight, I will upgrade to Windows 7 again and see what happens...

It better work...I like 7 and don't want to go back to Vista...

Bob,

Have you already tried using the Vista ATI drivers in Windows 7 using Compatibility Mode with Vista selected?
