Mobility Radeon 7500 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm testing Windows Vista RC1 on a Compaq n800c notebook.  Ran into some problems with the integrated Mobility Radeon 7500 video card.  When changing the screen saver, several of the screen savers including Aurora generate a BSOD PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (0x50) in file ati3duag.dll.  This is the driver installed by Vista - ATI does not have a Vista driver available for download for this model card.  This worked flawlessly for the last year or so with WinXP, so I don't believe the card is defective.  Anyone else run into similar issues?  Any suggestions other than don't change the screen saver?  The BSOD is generated simply by selecting the offending screen saver, not by previewing/testing the screen saver in any other way.

  • I successfully installed the Radeon Omega Drivers 3.8.252 (http://www.omegadrivers.net/archive.php) on a ThinkPad R50 with Vista RC2 (5477). Please revert to Standard VGA or install the drivers manually (otherwise BSOD).
    OK, added link to download.

  • Exactly the same problem - Thinkpad T40 w/ATI Radeon Mobility 7500..  It worked fine just after AU installed it, but after a reboot it just BSoD's w/that dll.

  • I have IBM T42, the same ATI card. Vista RC-1 installed some generic driver. I updated the driver using Device Manager and reran "Update my score" in Control Panel->Performance information and tools. This caused BSOD due to problem with ati3duag.dll

  • Thanks - I didn't know about the Omega drivers.  It took some digging to find v.3.8.252 (3.8.291 is out now), but I found it on softpedia.com.  I didn't try v3.8.291, but on Omega's site it says that you need v3.8.252 for this chipset.

    I guess I'm lucky (to an extent) because the IBM ATI display drivers (XP, comp mode) worked without a hitch for a T41 I configured. However, there is one annoyance.

    The  S-video port.

    I've plugged in the cable and connected to a crt TV via a scart socket with an S-video port.  Works, but guess what?

    After going to the display properties which is limited in functionality, I select the 2 display and 'Ok' it. I see the desktop on the TV screen with the Vista RC1 5600 in the bottom right corner. That's all. I click 'Start', nothing shows other than, yeah you guessed it, my desktop!

    Play a movie in Media Player, still nothing on the TV. Except desktop.

    Unfortunately, the draw back of the ATI driver install is that there is a known issue with the ATI Control Panel in this software version. RC1 blocks it. Which means I cannot turn the TV 'on'.

    Does the Omega driver include a control panel that works under RC1? I'm going to download the driver if it does? I just found out that it doesn't work.

    I note that the refresh rate / screen appear to be playing silly buggers at 1024x768. What do I mean? I can drag a dialogue box way past the right of the laptop screen before it appears in the centre of the TV screen. The TV screen only sees the far right of the Vista desktop and the laptop focuses on the centre of the vista desktop! Though I can drag items beyond the left or right side of the laptop screen.

    I bring the refresh rate down to 800x600, it's the same. Just bigger features.

    I cannot seem to adjust the size of the display on the laptop. I'll hve to change the monitor driver I think.

    One other thing, I'm only getting black and white. That i guess can be explained by the absence of a dedicated S-video port on the TV.

    Infact, has anyone tried the S-Video option on a crt tv?

  • I've had the same problem with the vista supllied drivers.  Now I've installed the Radeon Omega drivers 3.8.252 after reverting to the standard vga drivers and it says it's installed and needs to reboot, but after reboot it still only the standard vga drivers installed.  Is there a trick to installing these drivers?

    Using Vista RC1 build 5600

  • Hi there,

    ive tried several drivers -like omega mentioned below, but i still had a problems with going to sleep, od restarting - BSOD caused by ati2vdag.dll. Only which worked was Omega 2.6.87 based on Catalyst 5.7 i think. But still i have problems with media player or media center and movie maker. Ive downloaded drivers from www.guru3d.com

    Do you have any other experience?

  • I have a T42 with ATi Radeon 7500 and so far am running successfully using the "ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 (Microsoft Corporation - XDDM)" even though Vista decided it could do no more than Standard VGA.  The mobility driver seemed to come standard in Vista.

    I dont know about screen savers but I do get higher resolutions (1280x1024) and dual monitor support (Via docking station)

    *The Mobility 9000 is the big brother to the 7500, same chipset, just faster and can come with more RAM.

     

    Hope this helps.

  • Nigel S, how did you install the Radeon 9000 drivers on Vista? I'm trying to figure out how to do so, but to no avail.
    Tuesday, February 6, 2007 12:06 AM
  • I loaded the 9000 driver in safe mode.  It would not let me load them in normal mode.  Try the safe mode... I went from a 1.0 to a 1.9 with the new driver but still will not do 3d games.

  • I went to device manager, selected display, update driver software, browse my computer, Let me pick from...., uncheck show compatible, and then browse and find the ati mobility radeon 9000.

    It didnt stop me at any point.

  • Thank you soooo much. Worked like a charm. the 7500 driver gave me a horizontal split screen. The 9000 works perfectly. I can watch DVDs again. :)

  • I also have a T42 with ATI Radeon 7500 and have been looking for the ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 drivers for Vista everywhere but have not been able to find a download site.

     

    Are the drivers you referenced really the ATI Catalyst drivers for Vista ??  If not, where can I find the 9000 drivers ??

  • I have done everything that you guys have specified and the display driver works great now, but

    My computer keeps giving this blue screen everytime I shut it down.  Its the memory dump and also everytime i restart it, it says windows shut down incorrectly.

    Could someone please help me?

  • My installation of Windows Vista Business simply does not have ATI 9000 driver. I did it all according to your suggestions, but there was no ATI 9000 driver, neither among the "non compatible hardware".

    I tried to search it somewhere on the web or on the installation CD but did not find it.

    Would be gratefull for any other help or advice.

    hey guys, I finally found out how Nigel S made his 7500 work on vista.

    Step by step:

    Go to display properties

    then go to advanced settings

    click on properties beside where it says standard VGA adapor

    click on update driver

    click on "browse my computer for driver software"

    and FINALLY***IMPORTANT step...click on "let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"...do NOT search for it in an ati directory that you might have got drivers in.  do NOT use the drivers from the ati website

    Use the ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9000 (Microsoft Corporation - XDDM) provided by vista...this works...trust me

    restart you computer and you're good to go with all the ports working such as the svideo and external vga monitor....

    good luck guys...reply on the forum if you're still having trouble...i'll check back in about a week and answer any questions

    Wednesday, February 21, 2007 4:20 AM
  • Dear TIGGASTYLEZ,

    as I wrote on 18.02.07: my VISTA Business simply does not offer me ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9000 (Microsoft Corporation - XDDM) in the selection window.

    I also unchecked "Show compatible hardware. I tried to search in C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\atiixpad.inf_e8d83e66. I searched through the installation DVD. But did not find it.

    So far I am running on the  ATI MOBILITY RADEON 7500 for XP, which is OK unless I try to "Update my score" in Control Panel->Performance information and tools - here it causes BSOD.

    Is there any chance to get the ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9000 (Microsoft Corporation - XDDM) driver directly from you?

    Thanks,

    Maros

    Wednesday, February 21, 2007 8:15 AM
  • Hey Maros,

    I got six files off of my ati driver that is being used right now...Let me know how you want me to send them to you.  I suggest that you don't post your personal email on this forum.

  • I dont know what to tell you, I have Ultimate and it seems to come pre-installed.

    If you want to check again its the 26th driver down, in the ATI technologies list. 

    One thing I did do was "try" to install the Vista catalyst drivers but of course they didnt detect my hardware.   *BUT* maybe they installed the 9000 driver? Its one thing that you could try if your havent already.

  • I have a Compaq laptop model n620c with the ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 video card.  I installed the ATI Mobility Radeon in Safe Mode.  It is now recognized as ATI Radeon 9000 AND I CAN WATCH DVD AGAIN on my computer running Windows Vista. :-))

    Happy Lappy.

  • I had an interesting problem with my ATI-ALL-IN-Wonder 9000 card.  ATI3DUAG.DLL was causing my computer to crash each time during shutdown.  Then I downloaded and installed the Yahoo Music Engine Player, and the YME caused my computer to crash every time I started that darn app.  I got pissed and deleted the ATI3DUAG.DLL file from my Windows\System32 directory.  Guess what.  Problem solved.  Wouldn't know that it was missing.

    Cheerio mates.

  • YES THE ANSWER U ALL BEEN WAITING FOR ABOUT THE MOBILITY RADEON 7500 DRIVER. I JUST RECENTLY HAD PROBLEMS WITH MY MOBILITY RADEON. FOR VISTA YOU WOULD HAVE TO SELECT IN DEVICE MANAGER, RIGHT CLICK YOUR GRAPHICS CARD (STANDARD AGP CARD IT SHOULD SAY) AND CLICK UPDATE. CLICK BROWSE MY COMPUTER, NEXT CLICK LET ME PICK FROM A LIST, THEN UNCHECK THE SHOW COMPATIBLE HARDWARE, THEN ON THE LEFT LIST CLICK ATI TECHNOLOGIES INC. THEN IN THE RIGHT LIST LOOK FOR ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9000 (MICROSOFT CORPORATION - XDDM) THEN IF A POP UP COMES UP LIKE A WARNING JUST CLICK YES. This is compatible with the radeon 7500 mobile. Because if it wasent i wouldent of posted this message. Ive tested it and it works with no problems.

     

    TO LET YOU KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE A STANDARD GRAPHICS CARD DRIVER INSTALLED IT WONT LET YOU DISPLAY ANY SCREENSAVERS BUT 2 ONLY!! ATI RADEON 7550 ONLY HAS 32MB ITS NOT ENOUGH FOR TO RUN AERO IN VISTA BUT ONLY BASIC STYLE.

    Many days I spent to find a proper driver when my T42 has a problem after I installed Vista Ultimate. 
    DON'T try any other driver!  ATI or IBM site doesn't help! 

    Only their method and steps work great. Now I can watch AVI movie files on TV through my T42.

    Thanks a lot!!!!!!^^

    • Right click Computer -> Manage

    • search driver software on my computer
    • select from a list of drivers in my computer
    • use disk...
    • point to k1dugar's files, they will show as compatible. here's where you get a warning.

  • Aaron:

    Which instructions did you follow (poster and date)?  Thanks
    Monday, November 9, 2009 10:50 PM
  • I followed the instructions from  k1dugar - May 10, 2007

    I got it to run okay and consistently, but I have noticed that a system wide lock up occasionally.  This lock up occurs in a very specific scenario and only 1 in every 20 runs.  The scenario is as follows:

    1) Start up machine
    2) As soon as login, launch Chrome
    3) Visit a site with some intensive UI interaction

    With these steps it is possible to get the machine to completely lock up.  I have not had a chance to connect a kernel debugger but this is definitely an issue with the interaction between Chrome and the video driver.  I have not observed this in any IE runs nor if I let the system completely come up and wait about 5 min before launching Chrome.  This has only been observed when doing the above scenario immediately upon system start up and login.

    Other than that the driver works.  I have played Diablo 2 also with no issues.

    UPDATE: I have been able to circumvent the lock up issue by turning off all hardware acceleration.  I have no issues currently.

    Friday, November 27, 2009 8:09 PM
  • All Right!!!  I have been looking all over the web for a while now, trying to get this to work, and following k1dugar's instructions worked perfectly.  Here is what I have:

     

    Itronix GoBook 3 (ruggedized military spec laptop)

    Pentium M 1.8 GHz

    1 GB RAM

    ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 64MB dedicated RAM  (yes, even though the drivers say 7500, they work great for the 9000)

    Windows 7 32-bit

     

    I am now able to run games requiring 3D acceleration and such (obviously not aero, but I can live without it).  Guild Wars runs like a champ!  I hope this information helps all the others like me trying to get this combination of hardware to work.

  • I installed ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 drivers on a Thinkpad R50 with Windows 7 Home Prem 32 bit. Works without problems. Don't expect wonders with only 32MB of video memory.

    I used the following driver from Guru3D:

    http://downloads.guru3d.com/DNA-ATi-4.5.6.1-32x-download-1329.html

    Start with Standard VGA video drivers.

  • I have the drivers running fine......My question is do any of these solutions give a Control panel in which I can control GAMMA Brightness and Contrast....etc?  If I can not get the CCC to run, is there a different program that will do the same?

    Thanks

  • The steps documented by Red Coon worked *excellent* on my T42 running Windows 7 with the Radeon 7500.

    Like everybody else, I'm just trying to breath some additional life into a pretty decent laptop. My goal was to just obtain the dual screen functionality that wasn't provided by the Microsoft Standard VGA driver and darned if this fix didn't do it smoothly with zero issues. The new driver did nothing to budge the Windows Experience Index off 1.0 but I don't care much about that.

    I can now comfortably and happily say Win7 is the last OS this laptop will ever have loaded, and I just hope its a very long tenure.
