ATI Mobility Radeon X600 128MB Problems

I have a HP Pavillion zd 8053ea with ATI mobility radeon x600 128mb graphics which i have recently reinstalled windows XP on. However when I now run windows teh resultion is por with lines down teh screen. I have tried reinstalling drivers etc to no avail. When I try to downlaod new ATi driver teh computer crashes. I have tried changing the screen resultion in winodws which has had no effect either? I have seen about downloading ATI Catalyst from ATI site but it won't let me downlaod & install this.

Any ideas in basix steps how to resolve this, it seems o be a software rather than a hardware problem?

    I have tried starting computer in safe mode and running it with an external screen attached and I still get the same problem. I had replaced teh LCD screen about 6 months ago, but as the external screen is shwing the same lines it would appear to the video card. Any ideas on this?

    Also when the computer has been running for a while the screen goes blank & beeps the screen comes back with the following "VPU Recover has reset your graphics accelerator as it was no longer responding to graphics driver commands"

    ATI Mobility Radeon X600 128MB Problems with lines runing down

    How to fix please

    (2 months past "parts and hardware" warrantee) My performance problems are many, including the in-ability to "system-restore" among other things. Since my video games weren't working (graphics and display errors) and DVD's wouldn't play I started looking into my video card drivers... HARDWARE TROUBLESHOOTER diagnostics told me I had "null" video card... I knew "WE" had the exact same problem when you mentioned the tiny yellow lines running vertically through the screen (at all times.) That just suddenly occurred a few days ago... I've been running around in circles trying to narrow it down and wound up here. The only thing I am sure of is that all of windows XP, even windows media player codecs, will only accept/run drivers from windows specific sources. I have the HP Pavilion zd8000 and every time I tried to install/run any non-pre-installed (OS software bundle) CD burning software I eventually ended up reformatting just to effectively restore defaults. Interestingly; even before trying new burning software, I could burn DVDs all day long, but the original CD burning (rom) slowly quit functioning and had to be replaced. It would always PLAY/run/rip anything, and burn DVDs indefinitely, and for a month or so successfully burned audio/data CDs, but just slowed down and eventually completely lost the ability to burn audio/data CDs. HP really didn't want to replace the rom, but eventually had to.

    NEXT QUESTION: since we have all had the same prob. with the ATI Mobility Radeon X600 128MB... it seems to be flawed in design. I agree with the above advice to simply go buy another laptop, I think it's the only certain (cost effective) solution. So the question is, for us gamers and graphics heavy users, which laptop with what video card next? I am thinking about that really heavy-duty indestructible panasonic laptop but wonder about the graphics and gaming capabilities. My last thought on this pavilion laptop is it has the wide-screen and number pad, and weighs 12 lbs... It's not fun (heavy) hauling it to and from college on the city bus, standing at the bus stop, carrying it under my trench-coat in the rainy pacific northwest. My next laptop priority will be more lightweight.

Its a problem with the design. HP is my laptop and they havea fix for it, but it requires sending in the laptop to HP. A lawsuit in the USA has determined that HP is reponsible, as they were aware of the problem and keep selling the laptops. Do a goole search for HP lawsuit screen ZD7000

Same story; 2,5 year-old laptop with artifacts in (streaming) video; repaircenter diagnosis: videocard defect. repaircenter solution: buy a new laptop, since it's part of the backbone and therefore expensive to replace :(

Hallo, I am experiencing the same problem and have installed all offered drivers from HP with no result. Now I am using one ordinary VGA driver automaticly provided by windows xp, which has only 2 options for the resolution (start your system in "safe mode" and disable the radeon video card driver and restart your system). I am shure that the ATI Mobility Radeon chip-set is defect and doesn´t work with any other driver.
with best regards, Friedemann

Try restarting the pc in safe mode by tapping the F8 key while re-booting the computer. If the lines are gone it is the display driver.

You can get the correct drivers HERE from HP for your Laptop

ATI mobility radeon 9200 on windows 7

I am using a HP Compaq Presario X1000 with a ATI Mobility Radeon 9200 display.

I have recently installed the Windows 7 RTM and tried various display drivers with no good results.

I am now using the driver from

At first I unzipped the folder and run the setup program inside but it was not successful.

Then I go to the Device Manager, choose the display driver and choose "Update Driver"->"Browse my computer for driver software"->"Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"->"Have Disk"->"Browse"

click to the subfolder inside your extracted folder and find the folder named "2KXP_INF" and choose the inf files there and click "OK"

A list of device is displayed and I choose "ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9200"

the computer will install the driver and ask to restart the computer.

After restarting the computer my display was automatically set to 1680x1050, I found the following driver was installed:

Driver Provider: ATI Technologies Inc.
Driver Date: 1/19/2005
Driver Version:
Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher

I went on to test Suspend and Hibernate and they WORKED!

I have not tried this on Vista as I was running XP and Ubuntu in the last few years.

Driver is missing

The ATI website may or may not have that particular driver on it (I can't remember). However, I would first try the manufacturer's website (i.e. Dell, Gateway, HP). If neither of those have the driver you are looking for, try this:
