I am having no luck. By now I have tried the following (all done by completely cleaning off any leftover ATI stuff using AtiCimUn.exe file, as well as always logging in as Administrator in safe mode).
- 6.11, 6.5 and 6.1 driver packages on the ATI website
- the original cd that came with it, its ATI control panel version 220.127.116.1134
In every case I have tried doing the following ways:
1. Uninstall all ATI stuff. Reboot, in safe mode, window pops up suggesting to install driver, cancel it and install the driver using the Setup.exe provided in the package.
This doesn't finish saying that I need the default vga driver installed first.
2. Uninstall all ATI stuff. Reboot, in safe mode, window pops up suggesting to install driver, let it search for the default driver, it doesn't find it even with the Windows XP install CD. I can then choose to give it the directory for one of the above packages, and it will then install it.
In all cases, when I reboot and login as usual, the device mgr always has a yellow ! against the Display Adapters - Radeon 9200 Series.
It seems like I need to find the "default" vga driver from somewhere first to fix this problem.
Any help will be deeply appreciated.
