Windows 7: ATI Mobility Radeon x700

Cheers for your reply.

Whenever I try to run the setup.exe on my machine I get a BSOD. The only way that I am managing to get drivers updated is by using the update driver method through device manager.

Strange problem I've got here and I can't work out the reason or find a solution...!

Just have to keep working at it.

@ broccauley
No it is not, it is probably just 9.2 version.
You can download last version of modding tool and fix the last working driver for x700(Catalyst 9.3) as I did and it is working!

Microsoft Update Catalog

Go with IE8, Type ATI X700, download the latest WHQL 8.56.1.4

Or try from Catalyst.
The driver is fully WDDM 1.0 which is good. Not WDDM 1.1 but fully supported, therefore you should not experience problems.

Hello everyone.

I too had a problem with my mobility radeon x700 disply adapter.

When I installed win7 on my laptop everything seemed to be fine with no graphic card driver. But when I updated driver through device manager using windows updater, there was blank display after reboot.

I then tried many things to correct this situation. One of these things was to connect external monitor to my laptop. After reboot my external lcd displayed win7 logon. At last!

Then I accepted a fact that this is the way my laptop will work, as I use it only in my house... until following happened. I closed the lid of my laptop and oppened it after few seconds. Win7 realised that there is another lcd display and the picture appeared.

The conclusion:
After x700 driver instalation try to open-close laptop lid and hope picture displays as it did with mine.

Hope this solves your problem.

@konik - yes you are right. The 8.561.0.0 dated 01 December 2008 is the version that Windows Update currently installs.

The reason that it didn't work previously was because ATi had changed the installer for the drivers and the MobilityModder would not work with this new installer. There is, however, now a new version of MobilityModder.NET available and I have used this to successfully install the 32-bit legacy Vista Catalyst 9.8 with driver version 8.593.100.0 dated 21 July 2009. These are only WDDM 1.0 though - it doesn't look like AMD/ATi will ever give us WDDM 1.1 support for the X700.

Hello guys.

I own an Asus M6VA with an ATI radeon mobility X700.

And I followed your instructions with the moding tool. Now I have access to the installation of catalyst control center.

But I get an error message each time I try to run CCC.



It's in french but it says "Impossible to load the file or the assembly " " or one of his dependencies. File is missing".

I used the 9.3 version.

Any help is welcome

@Zlabiroth - uninstall your current drivers and try to use th MobilityModder.NET on the newest 9.8 driver and reinstall - these work. Maybe the change in the MobilityModder tool may have caused it not to work any more with the older 9.3 drivers.

Failing that, just use the older WHQL-certified drivers from Windows Update - these work very well!!

@broccauley - Thank you. But in fact, at the beginning I've done what you say : updating the system with windows update and everything went fine.

But I want to control the powerplay setting, and I can't do it without Catalyst Control Center, that's why I'm trying anything possible ^^

Maybe get back to the windows update driver and then, try to modify the last package of drivers to install only the catalyst control center and not the driver.

Will let you know what happens

==================================

Edit :

I dit what you said (use the 9.8 and uninstalling the old drivers) and it worked perfectly !

Thank you !
