Windows 7: Windows 7 drivers for radeon 9250

18 May 2014   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

Well, I spoke too soon. Every time I reboot or try to shut down, I get a BSOD, stating that there is a problem with ati2dvag.dll... then the system reboots and the display is perfect again. I tried running cmd line "regsvr32 ati2dvag.dll", but I get a RegSvr32 error, which states: ""The module "ati2dvag.dll" failed to load. Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files. The specified procedure could not be found."" If anyone has a solution to this problem, please post. I've spent many hours trying to get this to work. Like I said, it only happens when I reboot or shut down. Thanks.

Solution to 9250 driver install for Windows 7 x86

A big THANK YOU to Zidane24 for the Microsoft XDDM drivers. Uninstalled ATI display drivers, rebooted and updated to the XDDM drivers for Radeon 9250 Secondary and everything is working perfectly. I have rebooted several times and was able to shut down also with no Blue Screen. Thanks so much!

Windows 7 32 bit

I had the same problem ... this solved it, and now my mom is running Win 7 (32 bit) on her old Acer Power M2 with a Radeon 9250 grafic card. It's so easy and it works perfectly.

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.
Years passed but this solution rocks!
