    It is listed under XP. with ATI


    I downloaded a driver fromhttp://diablotek.com/. They said it was Vista but when I run it, it said XP.

    When I run it, it fails, "can't find inf file".

Hello,

According to this site it looks like Vista doesn't have drivers. You possibly could try this XP drivers listed at this site. In order to try this I would suggest removing the failed driver from device manager and checking the box that ask if you want to remove the files.

NOTE: You will need to make sure that you are removing the correct card when you do this. If you remove the wrong driver it could disable your video output.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

Trouble with install second video card HD 5450 to emachines t6532


Unclear of your statement. (More like run-on sentence)

Problem heading statement reads,
"trouble with install second video card HD5450 TO eMachines T6532"

Need clarification

The eMachines T6532 Desktop PC uses an MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
Also known as the MSI K8NGM2-L,

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8NGM2-FID--IL--L.html

(Click on photo for a better image)


Has one long white PCI Express x16 slot. (Expansion Slot)
Only uses one graphics card at a time, will Not use two.

[Graphics card / Video card. Same/same]

Therefore I surmise you are not referring to adding a Second graphics card, but are referring to;

A) This is the second time you have added a graphics card.

Or,

B) This is the second ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card.
Had one before. Removed it, and are using a new one.

Or,

C) This is the second time you have added a graphics card.
It is not an ATI Radeon HD5450 like the old one is.

Know this;
1) You can ONLY use the OnBoard (Integrated) graphics,
OR the graphics card.
You CANNOT use both.

When using a graphics card the monitor is plugged into it.
You cannot plug into the onboard graphics of the motherboard, with it installed in the computer.

Said differently;
With the graphics card physically installed in the computer, you cannot just unplug the monitor from the graphics card; and plug it into the OnBoard graphics of the motherboard.

[Also; Computer on, you CANNOT unplug a monitor, and plug it back in.
This = NO ]


2) Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

The device is the graphics card.
The version of Windows operating system was not stated.

Did you install the software from the Installation Disk? (CD/DVD)
Has the drivers on it, and the user interface software.
User interface software for an ATI graphics card, is Catalyst Control Center.

(Just to note; I'm using a Powercolor Radeon HD5450 graphics card, right now.
I'm using dual monitors.

HP 2009M - 20 inch widescreen LCD monitor, and an RCA L26HD31 HDTV as the main monitor. (26 inch HDTV)
They work GREAT! ]

(It is an ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card just like yours, IF yours has 1GB of graphics memory.

Doesn't matter what graphics card manufacturer, makes that HD5450, it is still an ATI (AMD) design.

Powercolor, VisionTek, Sapphire, Diamond Multimedia, Mickey Mouse, or Goofy. It is still an ATI graphics card )

The ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card, has to have a MINIMUM power requirement of 350 Watts.
Does your power supply have 350 Watts or more?

If it is the original power supply, the answer is NO.

Back then power supply manufacturers were 'fudging' the true maximum rated wattage.
Why?

Sold more power supplies.

Power supply rated at 250 Watts?
Nope.
More like 60 to 70 percent of that.

Divide 250 by 10.
= 25.
Take that times 6. = 150 Watts (60 percent)
Times 7 = 175 Watts (70 percent)

Would like your opening statements clarified.
Post back in a Comment.

Waves on monitor after 15 min in game


When you didn't change any hardware and after a freshly new installation the problem is still appearing, it's the hardware.
And I'll say that's the graphic card. Check the fan.

I cant use my driver installer for ati radeon 9200 with windows 7


According to the AMD/ATI website, that video card chipset only supports Windows 98/98SE, ME, Win 2000 and XP. There's no mention of Windows Vista. Given that this isn't a relatively recent AMD/ATI release, it may or may not be supported under Windows 7 properly. It's almost a sure bet it won't do AERO properly - especially if it only has 64 MB of onboard video memory.

If you've got it installed in a computer with XP loaded, you can download the Vista Upgrade Advisor from Microsoft. It will tell you if you're going to have any problems with Vista. Windows 7 has a very similar driver model - and Vista drivers can be made to work with Windows 7.

Good Luck,

Suitable agp for playing gta 4


The AGP slot on this system is 4X

The two cards that were tested on this from Dell are
ATI 64MB Radeon VE 7500 ATI 32MB Radeon
The maximum card you can connect to the system any PCI video card not more than 128 MB. As the motherboard and the power supply would not support it

I need to download ATI Display drivers for my Toshiba tecra S211 but i m not getting it on the net


ATI uses drivers called Catalyst Drivers. The ATI card you have is the ATI Mobility Radeon X600. Go to this link;

http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html

Select your Vista or XP or whatever your Operating System is from the first list. Then in the second list, select mobiltiy radeon. Then Mobility Radeon X600 from the third list. Then click GO.

Then on the next page use the installation verification software. Once it verifys your hardware is compatible with the driver, it should download and install it.

Use ATI's removal tool, then re-install the drivers. Vista should auto detect a suitable driver. Go to ATI and get the latest Vista driver for your card and install.

Lost resolution windows vista upgrade on GX260


Hi all,

I tried numerous solutions for this issue and none of them worked except this one. I tested it with Vista Ultimate and don’t know if other Vista versions have the same drivers but here’s what worked for me:

1. Right click ‘Computer’ then left click ‘Properties’ to open up System window.
2. Click ‘Device Manager’
3. Click ‘+’ on ‘Display Adapters’ and you should see the drivers for your video. Right click and select ‘Update Driver Software...’
4. Select ‘Browse my computer for driver software’ and click ‘next’.
5. Click ‘Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer’
6. Untick ‘Show compatible hardware’
7. Select ‘Intel Corporation’ then select ‘Intel 82865G’. Click next.

This will install the drivers. No they are not the same drivers for the hardware but they work a treat!

Is this computer pci express x16 video card compatible?


Hi mtribbia, yes the Radeon X1050 has two DVI output connectors. Using ATI/AMD's Catalyst Control Center is where you set up your two monitors. This is known as display extension. Where you can extend your display from the primary 1 monitor & drag the image to your second monitor 2. Download the latest Catalyst Control Suite from here.
http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=xp/radeonx-xp

To change the Catalyst Control Suite to another OS use this link. http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html

Good Luck & Kind Regards.
