Tip & How-To about ATI RADEON™ HD 2600 XT, Graphic Card

ATI Radeon HD driver installation error: product identification error

Hello there.
I am an ATI Radeon customer myself (I own an ATI Radeon HD 2600XT) and there's a problem that I've faced for a long long time and have finally found the solution.
If you have this driver or any other ATI Radeon HD 2600/3600 series you might have noticed already that when trying to install the drivers (both out of the CD or the downloaded once) the driver-installation program does NOT identify that you have that exact model. Thus, causing you problems of not being able to play high quality PC Games and/or Video Codecs problems.
I was astonished, that's an error from ATI side, what should I do?
Well thank god ATI put an eye for that problem and they finally published a solution to it, a hotfix.
How to apply the hotfix and finally enjoy the potentials of this amazing Video Card?
Go here http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/CatalystAGPHotfix.aspx
Select your operation system. (For me, I have Windows XP Professional, so I would click Catalyst 10.4 Hotfix for Windows XP PRofessional and Home Edition.)
And by clicking there it prompts you to download the hotfix that includes the driver and ATI Catalyst.
Install it, and you're good to go.

Enjoy.

Installed my VisionTek HD 5570 in my fairly new HP Windows 7 PC. Using DVI connection, the Starting Windows logo comes on, but then locks. I can hear the system continue to boot, but don't know why it's locking. Could it be that I've not completely removed the on-board NVIDIA adapters, even though I've disable it?


Hi,

I recommend that try to download the updated driver for the Video Card because I've encountered that kind of problem with my Sapphire ATI Radeon 6870, I've just downloaded the updated driver through the ATI website.

Hope I've help you somehow. =)

I see no reason for the 2600XT not to run on your board.
