That's what keeps the economy of some type going anyways! In this field especially in the last few years you have to expect to see a fast turnover of hardwares. Who wants a 5yr. old video card? Not unless you are restoring or trying to keep a museum piece running.

This is why you have to check the release notes on the newer catalysts for expansion type cards to see if that model series is covered. For most onboard graphics you generally won't see a catalyst but a set of drivers to match there.

I'm not talking about old cards..I would like to think that my 4850 X2 is a fairly new card... I could be wrong but I would have to think this card will take me into the next major change, (system, O/S, file change) at least for the near future.
I can go back to saying, someone from ATI, Radion, or Sapphire has to step up. I'm sure the little mfg are working with the lg mfg or are at least in contact. They just don't have an answer. Yeah for Nvidia, on top of their game. My alternate card is working well, but it's not the one I want to use.

The support site seen at the manufacturer or ATI.AMD game.com site should readily see Vista if not Vista/7 catalysts readily avialable since that's one of the latest models out. Any Cat.9.x version is already geared from the 2xxx series through the 4xxx models.

I read through the pages but couldnt find what I needed..so..
I'm running win7 x64 build 7100 (RC1) on the following PC - Alienware M17-EU notebook with dual ATI Mobility Radeon HD3870X2. I have the 9.4 catalyst driver but the problem is very disturbing - the secondary video card won't start,only the primary one works. Didn't have such problems under Vista x86 and x64. Windows gives me the explanation that the device cannot start (code10). Any suggestions?

Ive run into the same problems with each up date, I'm running two monitors, my card will only run one. My mouse can travel to the second screen but it stays blank. The drivers don't install correctly and I get an error message on each 7 install and the 9.4 cat install. I would like to think its a faulty card but, it works with XP 64. It may work with Vista but of my 5 machines in the house none are running Vista. As I said before, I'm running an Nvidia 2700 as a back-up card and it works well enough, I would like to run my Sapphire card because it should work better on this system. ATI is just letting me down

it won't even let me install the latest catalyst drivers. Always fails, if I try manual update, it says my drivers are up to date O_O

Im trying to get KOTOR II to work.... and nothing is making it happen.

I can get the game to play, but when I enter the video settings, it crashes

Join the club, I do think that there are some suggestions on that card in past posts so you may want to look back thru the pages. I feel for ya, but i can't reach you, I in a whole nuther boat, but is does my heart good to know others having problems. Makes me feel a little less inept. Thats a crap attitude

For some reason, in the .inf files for 9.3 and 9.4 my graphics card is listed, but if I try to manually pick them, I get a list of video cards, none of which are mine.... 9.1 and 9.2 work, but 9.3+4 don't....

somewhere back in the mix, someone used the method of cutting and pasting, the list of graphics cards form one upgrade to the other. Just like anything else you can make an input error on one file and replace it with a functioning file. That goes back to my college days of writing in c or c++. but that was long enough ago that I wouldn't attempt it now. You really can't screw it up because you can always paste back what you screw up, or get another copy of the file and replace the whole thing if your changes don't work. You can also type in your changes and see how badly you can screw it up.........if it works out for you = you really feel like you did something, if you screw it up you can always go back.
