Specs: Windows 7

Hey Guys,
Really struggling to get my 17inch monitor to display at 1280x1024. When I was using Windows XP and Ubuntu 8.10 I could get the resolution I wanted, however now I have windows 7 release candidate 1 the max resolution it will allow is 1024x768. I have downloaded the windows XP driver but it wont let me select it from the drop down list in 'Screen Resolution'. The driver it is using at the moment is Generic PnP driver however it knows the my graphics card is a ATI RADEON 9200 Series.

Any help is GREATLY! Appreciated!

I think this is the problem we will never resolve. I'm now using Windows 7 too and I have a Radeon 9200 card.

There is only two way... the first is not to install driver as you did, and although the resolution won't fit, there will be no problems with power functions like shutdown or hibernation (or restart or sleeping).

The second way is to install xp driver from the 6.11 catalyst pack manually. It allows you to set your optimal resolution, however you won't be able to shut down your computer regulary, you will get blue screen. (I've chosen the second one.)

To install the xp driver manually, download this pack, and after it unpack itself to c:\, exit the installer. Then go to device manager, and select "Update Driver Software". Select "Browse my computer..." and set the "ATI" folder on C:\. That's all.

I think the main problem is there isn't any vista driver to radeon 9200.

Hope I have helped you.

Windows 7 & Ati Radeon 9200se

OK so here’s the deal.
I tried all the XP Drivers for the Ati Radeon 9200SE video card in Windows 7 and I kept getting a blue screen of death when I would reboot my computer.
It would reference the offending file as “ati2dvrag.dll” or something close to that! Some sort of memory access error or something…
I even tried to install the files with the compatibility mode set to XP-SP3 and still nothing!
So I tried some unorthodox things and I can now restart or shutdown and restart without getting a blue screen. Please see below.

1. Install the Win2K Drivers instead! (but not the software)(throw on compatibility mode Xp-SP2 just for hell of it… forgot how but computer recommended this setting)
2. Do not restart Computer when asked, instead remove ati2dvrag.dll from system32 folder… put it on your desktop or something.
3. Logoff computer… Graphics will look like hell… log back in and return ati2dvrag.dll to system32 folder.
4. Logoff computer again… Graphics will reset and look great again!
5. Restart Computer (At this point my system shutdown perfectly without blue screen!)
6. When computer restarts, check all setting to make sure your monitor displays properly and the way you like. ( I tested resolution setting and what not and all was well)
7. Shutdown computer again to test and make sure still no blue screen!

I really don’t know if it was just the Win2k driver or not, because the above is just how I went about it. By this point I had already restarted my computer a million times and I was getting irritated! But just to let you know, the XP and Win2k drivers both have the ati2dvrag.dll file… The 2k Version is older though so I thought why not take the chance.
