Windows 7: New 9.4/9.5 Catalyst don't work on my x1900? Disables?

04 May 2009   #1

Windows 7 Build 7100
New 9.4/9.5 Catalyst don't work on my x1900? Disables?

Whenever I install ATI's latest 9.4 drivers, or the beta 9.5 drivers, the drivers install, but my x1900 card is disabled. In device manager, a yellow exclamation mark shows up next to my x1900 and the 2 monitors on it turn off. My 4870 is fine, except I get a blue screen of death when I try to play a video, but maybe that's because I haven't restarted?
Even after a restart, the 2 monitors on my x1900 don't turn on. I have to manually select an older x1900 driver manually to get the monitors working again. BUT....

But if I do that, it also downgrades my HD4870 Drivers.
1.) Is there any way to get 9.4/9.5 working on my x1900?
Or if that's not possible...
2.) Is there any way to have different drivers for my x1900 than my 4870 has?
My Setup:
Core2Duo E6600
x1900 XTX with 2 monitors on it
New HD4870 with 2 monitors on it.
