Can't install drivers for My Radeon 9800 Pro
Posted on 2006-04-04
I've just taken my old graphics card out of my PC (a GForce TI 4200), and replaced it with a Radeon 9800 Pro.
I've got XP, and when I booted up my PC XP automatically detected the card and installed drivers for it. In device manager they are called
- RADEON 9800 Pro (Microsoft Corp)
- RADEON 9800 Pro SEC (Microsoft Corp)
These drivers don't seem to be working very well as the screen flickers and some games won't run. I've downloaded the newest drivers from ATI but, this is where the trouble starts, I can't install them.
When I try to run the install, I get the following error message.
"Setup was unable to complete the installation, Try to setup your display adapter with a standard VGA driver before running setup"
I don't know how to do this. I've tried uninstalling the drivers, but everytime windows reboots its like the RADEON 9800 PRO drives to the card again.
Is there anyway to force the card to use a standard VGA driver ? and how do I do it.
I've tried running windows in safe mode and in VGA mode, and the install still won't work.
Help much appreciated.
