Ati Radeon 4650 driver problem on XP

Postby danny_44 » Sat Apr 25, 2009 7:42 am

Hello ,
I have an Acer laptop which has an ati radeon 4650 graphic card . I installed XP pro . But I am having problems on installing driver for graphic card. I am sure that i downloaded the appropriate driver from ati ' s site(for XP and 4600 series),tried to install but it says "setup did not find a driver compatible with your system or operating system ". I also tried to install manually by browsing the inf file on device manager . But it could not find any driver. Does anyone have any idea about this problem ?
Thanks already.

Since you have a laptop...
A) Typically you need to get the driver from the manufacturer's website for it to work. I'm assuming your laptop came preloaded with Vista?
B) Since it's an ATi driver on XP do you have .Net 2.0 installed?
C) If both A and B are both checked see if Omega is still modifying drivers.

Haven't tried it but maybe it works. If it doesn't it then no harm no foul.

What is the exact model of the Acer you own? Maybe we can find a different laptop with the same size screen, video card and chipsets.

While I'm looking for this notebook have you tried to see if the drivers are available on Windows Update?

*EDIT*
I know this picture shows Vista but it also doesn't mention ATi anywhere in the support section. I'm not tring to be a jerk but are you 100% sure that you have a HD4650?

For its and grins run GPU-Z and confirm that you do infact have a HD4650.
Link to GPU-Z 0.3.3

I solved the problem .
I was mistaken on manually installing the driver . I will write the solution in case somebody has the same problem .
Here is the solution ;

*Exract the driver to any folder(While the driver wanted to be installed it is extracted to X:/Ati folder.)
*Go to Device manager.
*find vga device and click update driver
*click reload from a list or location
*on next page click "dont search." hit next.
*on next page click "i have a disket"
*then find the inf file browsing something like X:/Ati/support/9.4.ee.ccc/driver/driver/xp_inf/cx_123123.inf/ and click ok
*from listed drivers select ATI Radeon 4650
*finish and enjoy

Thanks brother for your great helps.
Regards

where can i find the proper driver?

i have exactly your problem with my Ati Mobility Radeon HD 4650.

Ati/Amd's page tells me to get the driver on my Laptop manufacturers homepage where I can only find drivers for vista...

Thanks in advance! 8-[

I think that recently ATi added mobile support to the regular Catalyst Suite. Download the latest version off of ATi's website. If they complain that you don't have a compatible card then you'll have see what drivers are available on the laptop manufacturer's website.
