Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit

I think the driver of Radeon 9250 for XP is running under 32 Bit. I've also 64 Bit and the driver isn't work. I want to use a second monitor with vga, if anybody have a useful driver, please post it here :-)

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate and numerous virtual machines

I had a Saphire Radeon 9200 running on Windows 7 basic VGA driver and tried every trick I knew to try and get a higher driver to install and it is just NOT possible. Anyone who says so is not being truthful and is winding people up. There was never a Vista driver for this card and it is much too weak for Vista and 7. Works great in XP 32 bit and that is all.

Windows 10 Home 32-bit

I was able to make the Radeon 9550/X1050 run on Windows 7 without aero and it works great but i'm not sure if there's any support for Radeon 9250.

Windows XP, 7 & 8

I had the Radeon 9250 and the Aero feature worked in Windows 8.

As far as I remember Windows 7 did not work no matter what. A year later (today) this remains the same.

I have an old Dell Dimension 3000 with a crappy on-board Intel graphics card. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit. I also installed a Saphire Radeon 9250 card. By default, Windows 7 identified the Radeon 9250 card as a generic/unknown graphics controller.


[1] Use Windows Update to confirm you have the most recent video drivers distributed by Microsoft: C:\Windows\System32\wuapp.exe
[2] Download the official Radeon 9250 drivers for Windows XP 32bit, from the AMD site:
[3] Install the Radeon Catalyst driver package. It will fail. Take note of where the driver installation files were decompressed to.
[4] Open the Device Manager C:\Windows\System32\devmgmt.msc
[5] Select 'Display Adapters' and locate the unknown graphics controller. Right click on the graphics controller, and select 'Update Driver Software'.
[6] Choose 'Browse My Computer for Driver Software' then navigate to where the Radeon Catalyst drivers were decompressed; typically: C:\ATI\Support
[7] Windows will now discover and install the 9250 Radeon drivers from within the Radeon Catalyst package


Windows 7 will now recognize the Radeon 9250 drivers, as can be seen in the attached screen capture. Areo effects do not seem to function (in contrast to having a non-functioning video card, this seems of minor consequence).

It should be noted that this has only been successful under the 32bit OS.

Just installed Radeon 9250 AGP in Windows 7 x86

Congratulations to member seanriddolls, for coming up with the Radeon 9250 work around. It was a problem I've been dealing with all day. I've been trying to update an old XP computer, with a Radeon 9250 AGP video card, to Windows 7 32-bit. I followed his instructions and it worked like a charm. Thanks mate!
