Windows 7: Please Help! ATI HD4650 hasn't worked since Saturday :(

Please Help! ATI HD4650 hasn't worked since Saturday :(

Hi all,

I installed Win 7 onto my pc which had XP beforehand. My ATI HD4650 is AGP 8x (it runs on an ASUS P4R800VM Mobo) and I previously had Catalyst 9.10 on XP with the hotfix.

Win 7 only detects my card as standard VGA adapter, I manually install drivers (from device manager) from the CD that came with the card. This works fine after reboot and Windows detects HD4650 card but with the exclamation mark (card has been stopped because not functioning properly message).

I have tried to follow some steps on here regarding installing 9.10 catalyst, e.g. make installer vista compatible and install, tried vista hot-fix drivers, uninstalled all drivers and tried again, I even re-installed xp and upgraded to win7 again, nothing has worked . Has anyone got any ideas how I can get my card to install catalyst 9.10? Or at least get recognised and functioning properly?

Thanks in advance

"I manually install drivers (from device manager) from the CD that came with the card. This works fine after reboot and Windows detects HD4650 card but with the exclamation mark (card has been stopped because not functioning properly message)."

Going by this, there are only 2 possible problems to look at and consider.

1) The AGP to CPU driver for your machine needs some kind of update. Your motheboard only supports latest XP it says. In this case, it could very well be true that they aren't kidding. Or perhaps they just don't want to "offically" support later OS. ASUSTeK Computer Inc.

2) Perhaps a bios update could help. Possible but rare.

The way it seems to me is that if you want graphics acceleration, you must use XP and XP only. No Microsoft OS later.

Go into bios after you update it and set it to AGP Aperature 128MB. You could also try setting it to work at 4X which may rid it of error code 43, but I don't think so. Worth effort to try, however.

That error code 43 does not look good in this case. Use my post to research if you are interested in going the last mile to try to fix your problem. It's my educated guess you can not, but I wish good luck.

Let me know if you find anything reasonably related.

If you have a working driver installed from a Catalyst Suite package through the device manager, you can run the setup.exe to install the CCC.

If the CCC will not install for you from the same package you installed the driver from, you have some conflicts on your system that previously existed...or made some error somehow.

Clear the machine of all ATI files, folders and registry entries using jv16 Powertools or CCleaner. Once the system is clear of all ATI "stuff" - start the install process again and it shuld all go smoothly from beginning to end.
