ATI Radeon XD 2400 XT

UPDATE thanks to Hendrik: Acer has released a new driver pack, which should work for XP.

I got a laptop Acer Travelmate 6592 with ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT. After a few whiles of using Vista I decided to go back to XP and there was a problem with supplied drivers from Acer. There was none that could be used with my XP version…

Therefore after looking for a while and trying different solutions I came up with a one of my own.

Just follow these steps if you have problems:
1. Download and install Driver Pack.
2. It will say it doesn’t recognize the driver, but it will leave its drivers on your hard drive.
3. Go to your device manager.
4. Click on the graphics card not beeing recognised
5. Choose reinstall driver.
6. Click “Install from specific…”.
7. Click “I will choose…”.
8. Choose “Display adapters”.
9. Click “Have a disk”.
10. Point it to the dir where you installed the above file – ending has to be something like “7-9_xp32_dd_ccc_wdm_enu_52443\Driver\Driver\XP_INF” and click OK.
11. Search for your video card driver. Trust me it is there.
12. Click yes to continue and ENJOY!

If you have questions, please post in comments.

    Hi Piotr,

    Thx for the tip… very usefull.

    Btw: do you also have the problem that the laptop does not shut down (it is stuck on the “windows is now shuting down” screen). Any idea/tip how to solve that?

  3. No such problem with windows being stuck on the shutting down process…

    Acer has released a new ATI driver package on its website…and… this one works!

    Get it at ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/notebook/travelmate_6592/driver/

    (note: I’ve still got shutdown issues. It appears to be caused by the built-in webcam, but no new drivers for the Bison camera yet… just have to work without the webcam for now)

    That didn’t work unfortenately in my case. I have all ready tried the driver provided in acer FTP-site (VGA_ATI_M74_8.403WHQL-XP-070811a1-052202C-Acer_XP.zip 132413 KB 4.10.2007 9:55:00)
    I also have those shutdown problems. Please post comments if you have solutions.

  6. Hmm…

    Did you try my solution ?

    I personally didn’t try Hendrik’s one with new Acer drivers, but I know for 100% that mine works! You can actually extract the drivers without installation if you play with the package file…
    As for the shutdown issues, well just make sure that you have all the windows xp updates installed etc… I don’t have such problems and I never had…

    If it is the camera issue, then here is my driver:
    Bison 7.32.701.6

    Hope it helps !
    I am very happy with the laptop, running 24/7 and pretty busy all the time 😉

    Ok. So I tried that first solution. I had a fresh install of WinXp pro and nothing else installed. First thing to do was to install vga-driver from specific location etc.. Everything went fine but when I try to run 3d application it gets stuck — BSOD and restart… By the way step 11. There is ATI Radeon Hd 2400 xt, but it is actually missing word mobility…

    This is starting to bother.. Acer tech.support is bouncing me from 1 place to another. ATI doesn’t provide support for mobile products….

    Solution to this (and another) problem is here: http://www.driverheaven.net/mobility-radeon-drivers-support/146837-driver-heaven-mobility-modder-net-public-beta-v-0-8-8-0-xp-vista-support.html

    Rocks 100% with radeon hd2400xt in Acer 7520 laptop.
