    So I downloaded the 9.3 and modded it but would not install the driver on my 3650. 9.2 works but not 9.3.

    Any reason why?

    Windows Vista 64bit SP1

    try this:

    add
    "ATI MOBILITY RADEON HD 3650" = ati2mtag_RV630, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9591
    anywhere to the list below
    [ATI.Mfg.NTamd64.6.0] in the CH_xxxxx.inf file
    and
    [ATI.Mfg.NTamd64.6.1] in the C7_xxxxx.inf file.

    then try installing the driver without MM (you should download the driver and ccc seperately and install ccc after the dd is installed, like doing it when using MM as well).

    no guarantee to work, but it could eventually, since it works on other os.

    (best would be the first line below the chapter title to be able to find it easily in case you wanna undo it if it doesnt work etc.)

    I'm suffering from the same problem, using an Ati Mobility Radeon HD 2600 on Vista 32 Bit, I too modded the 9.3 Drivers with the tool but they just won't install. What would be the lines I have to add to make it potentially work? Thanks in advance :)

    "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600" = ati2mtag_RV630, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9581
    or
    "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600 XT" = ati2mtag_RV630, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9583

    Wonderful. It worked, thanks. One minor difference, the files were called CW*.inf and CL*.inf. But I just added it into those files instead and it worked like a charm.

    necrophyte, can you give me the line for my card ? i have an ATI MOBILITY RADEON HD 3450, i guess the line should be close to the 3650 but i dont know the hardware id maybe? of my card

    i think:

    "ATI MOBILITY RADEON HD 3450" = ati2mtag_RV630, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_????"

    please tell me if im wrong :=)

    Catalyst? PC VENDOR ID (1002) LIST

    95C4 is correct

    btw. if somebody tries this way and has winxp (then only the cx_xxxxx.inf file has to be modified), eventually an error occurs while installing the driver afterwards. there are 2 ways to install it:

    1. in device manager > update driver (ati card) > point to the .inf file
    2. add ",0x####", where #### is the device id of the card found in the list from the link above to the end of the second line (turn off word wrap in notepad!) of the chapter under [WINXP] starting with "R6=DriverPath_R6" of both files
    \ATI\SUPPORT\[Current Version]\Driver\Driver\CX_*****.INI
    &
    \ATI\SUPPORT\[Current Version]\Driver\Driver\INSTALL.INI

    then install the dd the regular way (setup.exe)

    Re : Catalyst 9.3 w/ Mobility Modder?

    i've got the same card than AMNEN, but it's still doesn't work!
    (lenovo Y710, ATI RADEON HD 2600, Vista 32 bits)

    I downloaded CCC & DD separately, i modified CL*.inf & CW*.inf

    Another difference :
    I don't see: [ATI.Mfg.NTamd64.6.0] or [ATI.Mfg.NTamd64.6.1] but [ATI.Mfg.NTx86.6.0] & [ATI.Mfg.NTx86.6.1]

    but i suppose this is a minor difference...


    After setup DD & CCC, it still doesn't work...
    What could i do, please ??

    [ATI.Mfg.NTamd64.6.0] & [ATI.Mfg.NTamd64.6.1] are for vista 64bit & win7

    since you have vista 32bit and have [ATI.Mfg.NTx86.6.0] & [ATI.Mfg.NTx86.6.1]
    , youve downloaded the correct driver.

    first i would suggest completely uninstalling any ATI drivers/programs (dd, ccc, wdm, hydravision etc. - you can leave hdmi if you have it)

    then download and extract the vista 32bit driver again and
    copy the underlined line below exactly how it is under [ATI.Mfg.NTx86.6.0] & [ATI.Mfg.NTx86.6.1] in the two CL*.inf & CW*.inf files and watch out for spaces (ie. leave no space after 9581)

    "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600" = ati2mtag_RV630, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9581

    then install dd and ccc without restarting in between! then restart and if the problem still persists, post exactly what the problem looks like.

    Re : Catalyst 9.3 w/ Mobility Modder?

    thanks for you explanation, but i've done exactly what you say, i tried 2 ou 3 times, (with dd & ccc seprately, or packaged)

    I still don't understand...

    Something strange: when i select "custom setup", i didn't see "Display Driver" in the list..., let's see what i have :

    ATI Catalyst Install Manager 3.0.715.0 (grey checked)
    ATI HDMI Audio Driver (checked)
    Microsoft Visual C++
    Catalyst Registration (checked)
    Word of warcraf... (checked)


    Tell me if you have other ideas !
    If not, i'll give up

    Thanks a lot

    Re : Catalyst 9.3 w/ Mobility Modder?

    Another difference :
    When i use the modder, i see the "ATI Display Driver" but, at the end, in the report, i see that the setup of Display Driver Failed...

    i think theres a problem with something already installed.. did you have some other ATI drivers, ccc etc. installed before? or maybe other display drivers, like intel if you have an intel chipset?

    do you have driver cleaner? it yould be best to run driver cleaner (in safe mode) and remove all the traces from every ATI product available in the list, whether you actually have it or not, and also other products you may have installed or had installed before.

    if everything fails, i would say your vbios prevents you from installing drivers for the card that it thinks are not supported/permitted (by your notebook manufacturer) etc. sometimes notebook manufacturers do this by implementing "their" vbioses into the cards.


    then only flashing it with an "open" vbios would solve the problems, if you dont mind breaching the warranty by doing that. or try giving ibm a call and ask them about your problem. if this is the case and theyre very very nice, they could give you a new/more free bios.
    hp for instance often provides users with softpaqs for notebooks that make a big difference after enough complaints have arrived, many only when requested personally.

    Hey Necrophyte!

    I followed your instructions, my GPU drivers installed perfectly, but i can't figure how to install the Catalyst Control Center. Can you, please, explain the process for CCC installation, with a bit more detail?

    Thanx for your time and your advices!

    actually downloading ccc & dd separately and installing ccc the regular way after having installed dd should do the job.
    what problem do you experience with ccc?

    I tried to run the .exe, went for a custom instalation, but then it gives me no option for installing CCC. The available options are:

    • ATI catalyst install manager
    • ATI HDMI audio driver
    • Microsoft Visual C++ redistr.
