Windows 7: Mobility Radeon X1300 not working on Windows 7

Windows 7 Ultimate x86 (32 bit)
Mobility Radeon X1300 not working on Windows 7

Hi all,

I have upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit, I am having problems with my Dell Inspiron E1505 / 6400. The Mobility Radeon X1300 can't be detected at all. I cannot run games such as World of Warcraft, or Mass Effect, unless the drivers work.

I have installed Catalyst 8.12 drivers from DriverHeaven, and also modified the drivers using HH Mobility Modder. There is still no change.

Just a FYI,

Dxdiag states:

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (64-bit)

Hi there, uninstall your current video card drivers, run driver sweeper to remove any leftovers from the uninstall, reboot and install the latest catalyst driver (10.12) which has support for both, your card and windows 7. :)

EDIT: oh noes, i just re-read the whole thing, i misread, it's mobility radeon, i think there's no support for that card in windows 7. i'll post back in a few minutes

OK, here's what i found on the forums, check those out

Win7 Home Premium 32bit and Win7 Ultimate 64bit

Hi there.

to whomever is experiencing the same issue,I had the same problem too.

Lots of exe files and catalyst versions (11.x 12.x for xp, vista, 7 32 bit) on lots of web sites just to have my ATI Mobility Radeon X1300 recognized and working properly with win7: none of them working. I always got just catayst install manager and SKD development kit installed, but no driver at all, then nothing changed and happend on the resolution of my monitor.

After a few days of research in the web (googling properly) I found this out.

Last catalyst exe file and version for ATI Mobility Radeon X1300 seems to be 6.11. It has been delivered for xp and vista 32 bit and you can find and download it here:

AMD/ATI Mobility Radeon X1300 mobility drivers for Microsoft Windows Vista 32bit

the following step is: how do you get a vista software and driver work properly with win7? Here you go. It's just about running this exe file from win7 but in Vista mode as per what reported here:

Drivers - Install Vista Drivers on Windows 7

Using just these couple of steps I could finally make it: anything is fine now with my ATI Mobility Radeon X1300 fully available and working with win7.

Hope this can help anyone who does not believe that there is no way to have tech things work properly and does not give up.

Bye anyone.

Any way to get a Mobility Radeon 9200 working?
...without using a generic driver? I never got it to fire under Vista so I figured I would give it one last shot. The notebook is pretty nice for its age so I wanted to see if it will work. Thank you! Eric
