Re: ATI Mobility Radeon AGP
I have the ATI Mobility Radeon 7500. It isn't supported under Vista.
However, I had Vista RC2 in a left over Virtual PC. I went into this and
found the ATI driver for Mobility Radeon 9000 which reputedly works for the
7500. Although I've just been running it for an hour, it seems to work
reasonably well. The folder for the RC2 is
C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\ati ixpad.inf_e2282f2c. Then
you have to go through the gyrations of replacing the standard video driver.
At least I can get dual screen and the FN-F7 key works again. It will
probably also sleep. I've noticed while working RC2 that if you were in dual
screen and went to sleep or hibernate it didn't wake up well.
