HP/Compaq :: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530 Driver For XP
I just bought a new DV7T 2000 and would like to replace the hard drive that came with the computer with a new one. I am researching about putting XP on it and looking for the necessary drivers prior to the installation. I need help locating the graphic card driver, it's the brand new ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530 512MB. I was looking all over the web and there was no info about it. The ATI site doesn't provide drivers anymore.

HP/Compaq :: Windows 7 Drivers For ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530
My notebook is a HP Pavilion dv6-1220sb with a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530 graphics card. I am running Windows 7 and I am trying to install the drivers.

Out of the box Windows 7 detecs the graphics card as:
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500 Series (Microsoft Corporation WDDM 1.1)

This are the hardware IDs:

I have modified the .inf files by adding this line:
"ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530" = ati2mtag_M9x, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9553
"ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530" = ati2mtag_M9x, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9553&SUBSYS_3628103C

When I run the installer it finishes very quickly and no software is installed and there are no error warnings.

Acer :: Aspire 5920G And ATI Driver Update
I've got an Aspire 5920G with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470 graphics card/chipset. Up until last week, I'd been running with whatever drivers had been installed when I originally purchased the laptop in October last year.

Vista's Windows Update told me of new drivers for the 3470 that had been released in January, so I promptly downloaded them, glad to have something a little more up-to-date, since the laptop is being used frequently as a lightweight gaming machine. The driver, according to Device Manager, is dated 15/01/2009, and is version number 8.580.0.0.

My problem now is that every time I boot the machine, an ATI warning appears reading the following:

"The Catalyst Control Center is not supported by the driver version of your enable graphics adapter. Please update your ATI graphics driver, or enable your ATI adapter using the Displays Manager."..................

Sony :: VAIO SR ATI 4570 Driver Update To V9.6 Guide
From browsing the forums, i see that everyone is having trouble updating their drivers. Mobility modder currently does not support the ATI 4 series but there is still a way to install the drivers for us fortunuately . By doing this, you are able to install the display driver v9.6 but no CCC unforunately; however you can still retain the CCC v9.2 from Sony's official drivers.

1> Download the appropriate version OS of the 9.6 driver from [url]

2> Double click the file you just download and click install. It will unzip a folder to C:ATI (default). These are driver files. When the actual installation wizard comes up, cancel it.

3> Browse to C:ATI9-6_beta_win7_64_dd_CC (Driver name, e.g.)PackagesDriversDisplayW7_INF (For 32-bit) OR W76A_INF (for 64-bit)

**Btw, I am doing this example based on the Window 7 Install. (Other versions of the OS should be the same except the INF file name may be different)**

4> I am under 64-bit so I will use W76A_INF as an example for this guide. Double click on the INF file (for W7, it is named C7_81757)

5> Scroll down the file until you see a list like;

"ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT" = ati2mtag_RV610, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_94C1&SUBSYS_0D021002
"ATI Radeon HD 2900 PRO" = ati2mtag_R600, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9400&SUBSYS_30001002
"ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT" = ati2mtag_R600, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9400&SUBSYS_25521002

6> Add this anywhere between the entries you see above (does not have to be exact, just place this entry somewhere along the lines of the WHOLE list)
"ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570" = ati2mtag_M9x, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9553&SUBSYS_9033104D
Congratulations, the display driver can now be installed ONLY VIA the HAVE DISK method.

7> Quick review on HAVE DISK method; Device Manager > Right Click ATI 4570 then Update Driver Software > Browse my computer > Let me pick a list of Device drivers... > Have Disk > (Now browse to the INF file you just edited, in this example; the C7_81757 inf file.) Install, voila, DONE.

8> Now, to get the CCC v9.2 (Can't get 9.6 yet), get Sony's ATI drivers, run it and click on CUSTOM install, NOT EXPRESS, install CCC only and anything that is mandatory (DO NOT INSTALL THEIR DISPLAY DRIVERS!!!) .Voila, CCC 9.2 function (which is the same as 9.6 essentially).

I believe this method works for NW series w/ ATI 4570 too.

Acer :: ATI Mobility Driver For The HD 2400XT Video Card (TM 6592)
Where do I find a mobility driver for my Acer TravelMate 6592 with a HD 2400XT video card?

The one on Acers site is acting weird.

I get no additional tabs under Display Properties -> Settings -> Advanced.
(so no way to manage tv out, powerplay or things like that)

Starting the ATI Catalyst Control Center only give me a chance to change resolution.

some desktop settings which are grayed out and nothing else.

It looks like some kind of initial settings/wizzard or so, but I can't get past this.

I can find no Mobility driver for the HD 2400XT card on ATI's own site.

Newest mobility driver (direct link) won't install, as the hardware isn't supported.

HP/Compaq :: DV2
I wants one, I'm wondering if the only model that came configured with the Turion Neo x2 is the dv2-1199us model? [url]

They aren't sold in Canada anymore except in 'The Source' (formerly Radio Shack now owned by Circuit City) stores and they only have the 1020ca models, which I am not interested in.

Was there any other models with the turion neo and 3410 graphics? Doesn't seem to be that great a selection even on e-bay for dv2's

HP is really pushing the DM3 here in the Calgary area, but they all are the low end models, with the L335 Athlon and base graphics, I'd go for one of these 13 inchers I suppose if I could find one of the turion neo/ATI 4330 models but no such luck in Canada with HP


What the heck HP? Why oh why can Canadians not buy from the US site? The Canadian hpshopping site is very, very very sadly lacking as is our retail selection of decnt models.

HP/Compaq :: DV2 Or DV3
I'm heading off to school, and these stylish, affordable notebooks have caught my eyes. The only problem is that I only get 2-3 hours of battery life on these notebooks although I can buy an extra battery. What I"m mainly doing is word processing, spreadsheets, iTunes, and web browsing but not all at the same time.

Here are my main questions and concerns:

Do these notebooks have good build quality?Is there any other way to charge the battery without having it in the notebook?Do they get hot?

I may have more questions to ask later.

I am buying this notebook in Canada.

Seeing that the battery tests I've seen on some reviews, they are surfing the internet with Wi-Fi on. I will not be, I'll usually be word processing. Should it last maybe 3 hours?

How long does the 9 cell last on the DV3?

Is there any word when this notebook will be available? I read that it's going to be sometime this month. How much will it be with the external DVD or Blu-ray drive? And are there going to be any other battery options other than the standard 4-cell? I'm probably only willing to purchase this notebook if it gets 4-5+ hours of battery life.. so how long do you think it will last?

HP/Compaq :: HP DV2 1010eo And Win7
I have the HP DV2 1010eo. It's got the AMD Neo and ATI 3410 GPU, 2GB ram and 500GB HDD.

First thing I did when I got it was to instantly install Win7 on it, because I read the OS performs alot better than Vista, and it was a great oppurtunity to not having to sit and remove all the bloatware from the Vista installation.

But Win7 runs really really really bad. The Aero is very slow when the windows have to slide open, it doesn't do it smoothly but lags it open, and everything just doesn't feel as smooth and fast as it does with Vista installed on it, which is weird since Win7 should run better i guess.

My main concern was that I just needed to update the drivers, because I remember vista running slow and laggy on all computers I've worked with, untill the correct display and chipset drivers are installed. So I installed the Catalyst beta drivers for Win7, and it installed the GPU drivers, but didn't install anything for the north- or southbridge, and Win7 still ran like crap.

It did score the same scores as Vista do in Windows experience, so how come Win7 still runs a lot worse than Vista on the DV2?

HP/Compaq :: Dv2 Hardware Virtualization
apparently, dv2 with Athlon Neo does support hardware virtualization.
On AMD site we find:

AMD Athlon™ Neo Processor for Ultrathin Notebooks
Model Number:
Frequency (MHz):
L2 Cache Size (KB):
Manufacturing Tech (CMOS):
65nm SOI
Wattage (W):
15 W

However, dv2 with the latest bios (F.27A) has the virtualization disabled and of course HP doesn't give you any options to change that. Too bad, since that means that you cannot run a 64bit virtual machine or even WinXP mode in Windows 7 on this laptop.

There's a bubble message saying "Display driver atikmdag stopped responding and has successfully recovered" error

This issue happens in windows environment. While web browsing, watching videos, going through menus or exploring through "My Computer"

It happens with factory vista image and even in windows 7 (upgrade/fresh) with factory drivers, updated drivers from after driver sweeper from guru3d.
I even tried the 9.9 ati mobility driver and the latest ati drivers with mobility mod tool.

Is this a hardware fault or driver incompatibility?

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv2 And HD Video Decoding
I recently bought a dv2, and immediately clean-installed the RC of Windows 7. I tested out YouTube and Hulu HD video, and they both were choppy/unwatchable, which I figured was understandable given the laptop's relatively slow processor and flash's inefficiency.

But when I tried h.264/VC-1 HD video, even 720p, I can't get it to run at any decent speed and using the CoreAVC decoder, videos seem to run at full speed, but are garbled beyond recognition and frequently loop a few frames, while the audio plays normally. For a computer that is supposed to run blu-rays, I think this is ridiculous, and I must be doing something wrong, right? If anyone with a dv2 can point me in the right direction, it'd be greatly appreciated. The next step is to restore Vista and see if that fixes my problems, then upgrade back to Seven. But until then, can anyone tell me their setup and results for HD video/Flash HD?

HP/Compaq :: Upgrading Dv2 To Dv2z
The idea is to replace dv2's MV-40 CPU with newer AMD Athlon(TM) Neo X2 (L335) or AMD Turion(TM) Neo X2 (L625). Any thoughts on this?

The questions are:

1) do dv2 and dv2z have the same motherboards?

2) how complicated would it be to replace CPU in a dv2?

3) is it worth it?

HP/Compaq :: DV2 Undervolting: Get At Least 25% More Battery Life
Following the excellent flipfire's undervolting guide and inspired by Silvr6's experience with undervolting his dv2, I decided to give it a try and...I was able to increase the battery lifetime from almost shameful 2h 25 minutes to 3h 30 minutes for mpeg 2 play, or even to 4h 20 minutes (light browsing and lots of reading). So, you get at least 25-30% more battery lifetime. This makes me like my dv2 a lot more!

Perhaps, it's the noted AMD's tendency to overvolt their CPUs, perhaps something else, but I was able to get the following 100% stable (in my case) voltages:

4.0x-0.6875 V
4.5x-0.7125 V
5.0x-0.7250 V
5.5x-0.7500 V
6.0x-0.7750 V
6.5x-0.8000 V
7.0x-0.8000 V (yes, it’s 0.8V again)
7.5x-0.8250 V
8.0x-8.5000 V

these voltages are stable for my particular CPU; yours might be slightly lower or higher. For example, Slvr6 was able to get a bit lower with 4x – 0.675 V. Read the undervolting guide!

But I hope that the table above will encourage you to try the undervolting (btw, unlike the overclocking it’s 100% safe), since the benefits for dv2 and AMD’s “neo” are so dramatic!...........

Thinking about opening my notebook up and removing the heat pads and replacing them with copper shims to reduce heat. that is, unless someone can find a way to downclock the GPU for cooling purposes... But I'd like to get it cooler so the fan won't have to run all the time.
