ATI Radeon X1550 256MB PCI


Has anyone got a working driver for ati radeon x1550?

Or do i just download the vista 32 bits driver?

I'm new to the board and this is my first post. I really like win 7, I think it's steady and reliable.
But I have a kinda huge problem. Whenever my display goes to sleep, switch my KVM to my other computer or turn the monitor off while windows 7 is running, the monitor will not wake up. In fact, the monitor will display "No Input Signal" and then "Monitor going to sleep". No matter how much I move the mouse, click the mouse or tap keys on my keyboard, it just won't come back up. The only way to get my monitor to work again is to restart my computer.

I'm running Win 7 x64 RC.

I have an ATI Radeon x800, 256mb, PCI-x 16 video adapter and an HP w2207 HDMI monitor. I've checked ATI's website for drivers and they do not have a win 7 driver for the x800, but they do for some of their other display adapters. So I downloaded the ATI Catalyst/Driver for Vista x64. The file name is 9-3_vista64_win7_64_dd_ccc_wdm_enu.exe. Since they put "win7_64" in the file name, I assumed this should work. But there was an error during the install and the driver would not load, so I dl'd the driver only and installed through Device Manager and this time it installed. After a restart, the problem still persists.

I hope there's a solution.

I am looking for a SCSI PCI adapter card that has 64 bit drivers. No problem, right? However, it needs to have an external connector for a 50 pin SCSI-1 cable. Not so easy now, eh?

I have a Nikon Coolscan 3 slide scanner and don't want to (i.e.: can't afford) a newer model.

I recently upgraded to Win7 64 bit and love it but the card from my XP days is an Adaptec AHA-2940- no 64 bit drivers. I have a Adaptec 39160 (not installed), which has the drivers but has a 68 pin VHDCI slot only.

My processor doesn't handle the XP emulator.

If there are no such cards available, will a 50 pin SCSI-1 to 68 pin VHDCI work (if there is such a thing)?

ASUS A8N-SLI Premium
AMD Athlon 64 3800+ Venice 2.4GHz Socket 939
600W PSU

ATI Radeon X700Pro 256MB PCI Express x16

So here's the issue: Radeon X1550 256 MB PCI installs fine and shows up in the Device Manager, but when I right-Click on the desktop and click on "Screen Resolution", under the "Display" drop down menu, I ONLY get the "1. Generic PNP Monitor on Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" that is listed. The Video Card is nowhere to be seen at ALL. I have an AMD Sempron Processor 2800+, ~1.6Ghz should that help any. It's an old computer, but for what I use it, it's fine. The OS is Windows 7 x86. Tried searching all over the net and a million different downloads, nothing works so far. Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.


I have a 512MB ATI Radeon X1550 PCI-E*16 GPU.

Windows 7 x64 has automatically installed drivers for me saying I have X1600 series!

I have tried versions 9.3 and 9.4 but both do not work.

The error messages are pasted (badly)

Sorry about the formatting or lack thereof - this is the error message for version 9.4 - same for 9.3

I'm even having trouble locating Vista x64 Drivers for the X1550 - grateful for any help

After deleting and un-innstalling all other graphics card drivers, the installation for the ATI Radeon 7000 PCI card still fails on my Dell Dimension 2400 PC. I have installed the same card on two other identical systems, but mine was the guinea pig, and I may have failed to delete something originally.

At the last attempt, after using Driver Sweeper, and going through all the removal and uninstall of past attempts, the ATI installation told me that the driver is the wrong one for my hardware. I am using the installation disk that came with the card. It worked on two other identical systems.

After I click 'Finish', even though it tells me the installation failed, the video card will work until I try to do something on my second monitor. Then the systems freezes completely. I do notice that the IRQ for the video card is set at 16 which is also used by another device. I'm going to try plugging the card into a different PCI slot and see if it makes any difference.

I have read some posts that indicate that it may help to un-install .NET, since there may be a conflict with more recent versions. I think that only applies to the Catalyst Control Center. It sounds kind of drastic -- I can do without the control center.

If anybody has overcome this problem, I'd love to hear from you.


After much research on this issue I am pleased to say I found a fix that works. This method may also work for other ATI radeon HD cards as well. Follow these instructions closely and be sure not to deviate to much from them.

I just installed Windows 8 Release Preview on my laptop, and as expected I stumbled upon driver incompatibilities.
My laptop (Toshiba Satellite) runs on a ATI Mobility Radeon 4200 series and like everybody else I got a lot of graphic bugs in most of the games I tried running.
The problem of course lies with Microsoft's preinstalled drivers witch do not seem to work as they should.In order to fix this you must install older display drivers witch of course you can't because window's won't let you( the stock ones keep reinstalling automatically). After spinning my head I came up with this few simple steps to overwrite Microsoft's stock drivers.It may seem a little complicated at first but trust me if you follow the step's you are as good as you can be

Step 1: Make sure you have the older graphics drivers (the ones that you are sure they work).Unpack them somewhere on your HDD for later use(don't install just unpack, the idea is to have access to the .inf files for your driver)

Step 2: Open Device Manager (Control Panel) & locate your display adapter (you should see some Microsoft's stock drivers installed here)

Step 3: Right click "properties" and go to "events" tab. Here you should see a list of the latest events (which driver installed & when). Search for the file that has the .inf extension ( in my case it was "atiilhag.inf").

Step 4: Go to C:WindowsSystem32DriverStoreFileRepository (this is where Microsoft stores all the default drivers for windows) and search for the file you found earlier (using windows search).Once you found it open the folder that contains the file & copy it to another location (for backup purposes).This file contains information about which driver to install (open it and look around you should see information on the driver version and other stuff we don't need).

Step 5: Go to the folder where you unpacked your older drivers( the ones that work).There you should see alot of files and folders.Here you must search for the location of the .inf files (mine were located in a folder named "Packages", but it may differ from software provider to provider). The goal is to locate the .inf file for your older driver. Once you found it open it, it should be almost the same as the one you found in the driver repository folder earlier( the driver version will differ of course) but probably it will have a different name. Rename this file to match the .inf file from windows and copy it to the folder where where you found Microsoft's .inf file (in the Driver Repository).

Step 6: Go back to device manager and uninstall the current display driver (right click: uninstall). This should switch your screen resolution to a lower one(so you know the driver got uninstalled). After this right click any item in the device manager and click "scan for hardware changes". This will refresh your hardware list and a new item will apear (your graphics card, marked as unknown device. Right click it and select "update driver software" select "browse my computer" and browse to the folder where you unpacked your older graphic's driver (the folder where you found your.inf file). It should now install your older display driver without any problems.

Hope this will help somebody, I tried to be as explicit as I could.

!!!!! Please note not to use the setup exe to install the graphics software for the video driver. When you unpack the exe file, follow these steps but do not click the install button, just hit cancel. This will mean that you've extracted the files but have not installed the driver or software. Once you have used these steps to get the driver working, go to C:AMDSupport12-6-legacy_vista_win7_32_dd_ccc_whqlPackagesApps Some locations for others may vary but this is where mine was located.
Next go to CCC2 and then Core-static folder where at the bottom a windows installer package named ccc-core-static will be. Run this to get software working for the driver you just installed. If you run the original installer without manually installing the software it will automatically install the sample driver again and your work will be lost. !!!!!!!!!

Follow these steps for the driver, go into AMD folder and manually install the driver software and you will have control over your graphics performance, such as MIP details and 3d settings as well as Fullscreen stretching in lower resolutions which is ideal for gaming performance.

I've done this and now I'm happily using windows 8 again


I'm having a problem that I can't enable Aero after installing my brand new ATI Radeon HD 4870. I've looked at a bunch of forums and every time someone suggests something, I've tried it to no avail. I've updated to the latest drivers and control center, but I'm not sure if there's some setting I need to change to get it working again. Can anyone help? (I've also tried to re-enable it under Desktop>Personalize>Windows Color and Appearance and Themes, but again no go. Doesn't even show up as an option.)


am si eu o problema cu placa video:ATI RADEON HD 3450 cred..

am un AMD ATHLON 5400+,2,8 Ghz procesorul; RAM:4 GB; VIDEO:512 MB;

mi-am instalat win 7 PE 64 BITI si driverul de la ati :

Si am instalat k-lite codec pack si am vrut sa ma uit cu media player home cinema la filme hd,sau full hd si nu se vad sacadat, sunetul merge bine dar imi face imaginea cu pete,decolorata ...

in vista tot cu k-lite codec pack si media player home cinema imi merg perfect filmele,numai ca in vista instalez driverul pt placa video de pe cd-ul de instalare pe care l-am primit cand am cumparat pc-ul.

in win seven am vazut ca imi merg bine doar filmele avi.

aveti vreo idee ce sa fac ca sa-mi mearga si in win seven filmele hd si full hd?

dupa ce am instalat vista,am instalat doar k lite kodec pack si mi-au mers filmele bluray (m2ts) fara pete,fara tremuraturi ca in 7.Se pare ca win 7 nu vrea sa recunoasca placa mea video ATI RADEON HD 3450 desi astia de la microsoft zic ca o recunoaste fara probleme:MICROSOFT

are cineva placa asta video si a intampinat aceeasi problema cu win 7 ?

ma ajutati,va rog,cu un sfat ...

Graphics Drivers & Software

Latest ATI Radeon 4770 Video Drivers (12/17/2009) are out for Windows

When i installed windows 7 on my computer i had the ati radeon x1300 pro in my computer. When it went to load windows 7 it locked up after the windows logo came up, and it put a lot of little windows screens on the monitor display, about a 1/4 inch and about 100 of them on the screen. So i took it out and installed another graphics card and it worked, but i really want the ati radeon x1300 pro to work. Any Suggestions?



i just bought a new ATI Radeon x1650 pro and installed it on my windows 7 pc. but when i installed the driver from the cd which is included on the box of ATI, i cant get through the windows. BSOD always appear.
i also try some other version of catalyst like 9.3 and 9.5 but they always say that i should update my graphic adapter's driver.

i also try to put in on my windows xp machine and another problem occurs.

please help me with this one..

sorry for bad english!

does anyone help me?

I'm installed Windows 7 on my laptop (Gateway ML 3109) and
I'm currently using a Gateway ML3109 laptop. It came with Vista already installed.
I installed Windows 7 32bit now and I'm having problems with the video drivers.
Can anyone help me where can i get download for (ATI RADEON XPRESS 200M Series Driver for Windows 7)?

The Everest detected that my display is an ATI Radeon 9200 SE card (OEM). But Windows 7 only recognizes it as a standard VGA card.

Where do I get the proper driver for windows 7?

How can I change the current display to the ATI card?

Thanks very much for the help.

Hi all!
Is there no native Vista driver for the ATI Radeon 9000 Pro 128MB?

I've looked at www, (and but the only Vista driver pack is "catalyst_8-31-100_vista32_rc2" which doesn't include the 9000 cards.

I also searched in the forum but only found this one thread that doesn't appear to be about my issue.

My computer gets a rating of 1,0 because the graphics suck (other components get ratings of 2,6..4,8). But I don't think the graphics card is the problem -- I just need proper drivers. Are there really no Vista drivers?

Hello folks.

I've just received my new desktop which came with the ATI Radeon 3000 preinstalled. It has an ASUS M5A78L-M LX motherboard.

I'm using Windows 32 bit and everything's working fine apart from the graphics card.

It isn't appearing on my device manager list, although Speccy is picking it up and Windows must know it's there as it keeps trying to install the driver.

When I do install the driver everything follows through...I get the message telling me the monitor may turn itself on and off during installation. And so the monitor switches off...and stays off. I've tried this a few times now...even left it humming away for 3 hours and still nothing.

When I try to reboot from here the monitor still refuses to pick up a signal and I have to do a system restore.

The driver then reappears in my optional updates, waiting to be installed again.

I hope this hasn't been covered, Ive had a look through the forums for the card model but couldn't find anything specific, although there do seem to be a lot of issues with the brand. This is my first graphics card and the jargon is a bit headmelty.

Many thanks in advance if anyone can help.

Hello people, i have a very big problem.
Aero does not work on my windows 7 and the graphics card i have is an ATI Radeon Xpress 200, it has more than 128mb of memory which fullfills the requirement of Aero but it still does not work. I have no Transparency and the old boring Dull windows
I have also tried to update my drivers with the vista legacy ones but whenever i do that it requires a restart and when i restart windows says that there is some problem with this driver and automatically applies the VGA graphics
Help is required,
Thank you in advance

The Title Is Wrong The Graphics Card Is Actually A Ati Radeon Hd 4550... When Playing A Computer Game..

SO ANNOYING.. i've un-installed and re-installed latest drivers... EVERYTHING.. Help Guys Thanks

Hi everyone,

I did some light searching on the forums and didnt find anything. Ive spent two days researching on the internet in general. Im having some trouble with my Dell Studio XPS 1640. Its running Windows 7 Ultimate and Im trying to get my ATI Radeon 3670 working properly. This all started when I tried to get Catalyst Control Center working to get my HDMI to output full screen on my TV. I started digging and I couldnt find CCC anywhere on my laptop.

So I tried reinstalling the ATI drivers after uninstalling the Catalyst install manager and uninstalling the driver for the graphics card itself. I cleaned the registry. Did a reboot and attempted to reinstall the driver. (This is after stopping the automatic driver installation from gpedit.msc since 7 kept installing its own driver that didnt work.) The installer finished and I checked the log and only the HDMI audio driver and the Catalyst install manager are installed. Im still stuck at low onboard-video resolution and the device manager says the card is only recognized as a Generic VGA video controller.

I tried reinstalling all of the C++ Redistributable packs and .NET Frameworks. As well as editing the drivers with Mobility Modder.NET.

Im at the end of my rope. Any help is appreciated.


If someone could please help verify these points because I bought a new AlienWare PC from Dell and my understanding I was ordering a Single ATI Radeon HD 5970, 2GB GDDR5 video card that would only accommodate one DVI connected monitor so the single monitor would be able to consume the entire 2GB GDDR5. But the card has two DVI connectors which means that it is only using 1024 MB per connection. DELL is trying to convince me that this is a Single ATI Radeon HD 5970, 2GB GDDR5 video card and it will meet my needs.

I keep telling them that a dual connection card is not what I ordered. I wanted a a single DVI connected monitor using 2GB GDDR5.

I contacted AMD to ask about the card, but they have not replied.
I need some experts help to clarify these points:

Single ATI Radeon HD 5970, 2GB GDDR5 - This card should only have one DVI connector that uses the 2GB of RAM. The Single referring to the number of connectors.

Dual 2GB GDDR5 ATI Radeon HD 5970 CrossfireX Enabled - this card would have two DVI connectors.
