|No mentions 9250 latest catalyst release notes|
Found on the web:
"If you are looking for ATI Radeon 9250 Windows Vista driver, you are out of luck because ATI is not going to supply any drivers for the 9250 cards.
From Catalyst 6.6 and up ATI removed driver-level support for the following series of cards (including Mobility models): 7000, 7200, 7500, 8500, 9000, 9200, 9250.
These are from ATI support: Vista requires video cards to provide hardware acceleration for DirectX 9.0 (Radeon 9500 and higher). Your product only provides this support for DirectX 8.1, hence it we are unable to provide Vista drivers for the same.
"Windows Vista Aero effect is not supported by ATI Radeon 9250, but other basic functions may work as good as in Windows XP, even some games too."
"Product series supported:
a.. Radeon? 9500, 9550, 9600, 9650, 9700, 9800, X300, X600, X700, X800,
b.. Radeon? X1300, X1600, X1800, X1900 series
c.. MobilityT Radeon? 9550, 9600, 9700, 9800, X300, X600, X700, X800
d.. MobilityT Radeon? X1300, X1400, X1600, X1800 series
e.. CrossFireT Xpress 3200 series
f.. Radeon? Xpress 200, 200M series "
"I setup Vista and it appeared to load 9200U drivers by Microsoft. Graphics were good but there was no direct3D support. I was unable to find any Vista drivers for the card."
no drivers here:
Catalyst 6.1 download - doesn't mention vista
Where did you get 6.14? - these versions are listed in the AMD site but not 6.14:
Catalyst 6.12 8.321 12/13/06
Catalyst 6.11 8.31 11/15/06
Catalyst 6.10 8.301 10/31/06
Catalyst 6.11 doesn't support Vista at all:
You're probably stuck with whatever graphics drivers Vista installs for it and not being able to use Catalyst.
If you install a 9500 or up card it's supported in Vista and by CCC.
