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.

ATI RADEON HD 2400 PRO Graphic Card drivers for windows 2000 professional


According to Ati's web site that card does not have drivers for Windows 2000. Here is a link to the Windows Xp drivers that may work. No guarentees but its worth a shot. Other option is to upgrade to a newer version of Windows or find an older card that supports 2000.

Diamond Radeon HD3870, 512MB DDR4


According to ATI this is a known issue. They refer problems to microsoft about this error as they say it is an o/s issue. Microsoft refers you back to ATI saying it is a thermal issue. I have an ATI card as well & have the same problem. Hopefully the next driver will fix this issue when released. Hope this helps.

Any idea?


Do you have installed the ATI CATALYST CONTROL CENTER? Thats ATI utility that controls the card, it usually places a red ATI icon besides the clock in windows. Double clicking the icon you enter the catalyst control center, use it in advanced mode and go to the DISPLAY OPTIONS menu on the left column. In there you'll find a FORCE TV DETECT option you can enable. Then in DISPLAYS MANAGER menu you can configure what you want to do with your displays with numerous option that adapt to any arrangement.

As always keep your drivers up to date... If your card isn't a true ATI, just a radeon built by someone else, then you might need to download the drivers from that manufacturer and use their utility. Or maybe you can force install the original ATI drivers for your card model.
