Solved: Radeon 9200 - compatible upgrade = ?!

Q: Solved: Radeon 9200 - compatible upgrade = ?!

I have had an older Sempron 2800, an ASRock Motherboard and an ATI Radeon 9200.

Until recently, doing some demanding tasks, all was well. Indeed all is well, except when it comes to one crucial area (for me) - World of Warcraft.

I have played World of Warcraft for a few years now, on this PC, with no problems. Nothing has been deliberately changed recently, either.

Problem: I reach a certain point in the game area and, no matter what - and I am sure that I have tried all things (all new drivers, re-installs, tweaking configs, etc) - I always freeze.

Though I never suffered before these incidents, I have thought that it would be nice to have a bit better performance / graphics card.

What I found was the ever reliable Tom's Hardware:

Best Gaming Graphics Cards For The Money
I consider myself an intermediate to advanced software user, but don't have much of a clue about hardware.

What I have done is install "EVEREST Home Edition" and so have access to the info that might be needed.

It appears that the card is AGP, as you can see from the screenshot below.

As far as Tom's article goes, I am looking in the AGP section.

Best Gaming Graphics Cards For The Money: AGP Interface

As I may purchase a new PC / have one built, in a couple of months, I would like to pick between the two most affordable (to serve as a stop-gap):
Radeon HD 2600 PRO (Best AGP Card for Under $100)
Radeon HD 2600 XT (Best AGP Card for $100)

Are they both compatible with my setup, because of being AGP, or is there something else that I need to look at?

Provided they are, I will be on e-bay pronto (or, living in London UK, head to my local computer fair tomorrow).

Of course they are both well-priced, but they'd be expensive coasters / door stoppers - if I were to miscalculate.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi my name is James

I am running a Dell dimension 2400 with 256mb ram, celeron processer 2.4 ghz and Intel extreme graphics, and 40 gb hdd and the rest.

I just brought a 256 mb PCI card made by powercolor, built with radeon 9200 technology. Not pci express just straight PCI

Followed the instructions, pluged card in, turned on computer,go into the device manager and i get a yellow
"!" mark with the code 12 error against my card.

Uninstalled onboard intel extreme graphics controller, its model thing is ...
Intel® 82845G Graphics Controller it has 64mb of video ddr ram
Um well as soon as i uninstalled it and rebooted, windows would automactically recongise it again and then yeah. it would become default.
So i disabled it and now its outta use. yay =)
I am currently running off the default windows vgasave graphics thing and i still have the error code 12 on my radeon.

I have installed catallyst, downloaded specific drivers from the powercolor site, installed those and i get either

TUL corporation, RADEON 9200 SERIES ver. [5/3/2006]

just the plain

RADEON 9200 SERIES ver. [5/3/2006]

Well i am using the plain Radeon 9200 series driver ^
And have tried both with no luck.

I read somewhere that i should not use the microsoft drivers
so i steered clear.

Then i saw that I should try adjusting the agp apeture in the bios setup.
To have it under 64mb.
I dont even have a agp slot!! but it couldnt hurt.

Hello guys,
I am using an older ATI RADEON 9200 card and its started to give me problems.
I noticed it when i tried to install a legal Medal Of Honor game.
It led me to notice i have no access into the Catalyst Control Centre where you can make adjustments too the setting of the card.
Everytime i try to access the Catalyst Control Centre i get a "Fatal Execution Engine Error(0x7927f26e)" message and cant open the program. I uninstalled and reinstalled the Catalyst Control Centre + drivers but still have no access.
If anyone has any suggestions for a fix or where i can get information on this problem it would help alot as im starting to think maybe the card is DEAD.

I'm not quite sure if this belongs in the games or hardware forums(Kinda game related), so I'm just giving it a shot here. My computer is very stable unless I decide to play World of Warcraft. When that happens, it runs about 1-20 minutes at a time before the computer screen goes black and A) Stays that way with a sharp buzzing sound in the speakers, or B) Restarts on its own. I have the case's siding off because I thought it was a heating issue (it may still be), but the computer restarts only when I run WoW. I don't see how the video card would have ample cooling without having a fan on it, and I'm not sure if I can just throw one on it and be good to go. Any way I can make my computer run cooler to see if the problem deals with cooling besides throwing a fan on?

The following is all I can find out about my video card. Can you tell from this if I should be able to do an extended dual monitor setup? So far, all I can do is get them to mirror each other.

If not, can anyone recommend a video card that I might get that will do this as well as allow my granddaughter to play Sims 2 and Roller Coaster Tycoon 3. That is pretty much the only games that are played. I prefer to keep it around or better. under $50 or $60.

contacting you.
there is no signal from the monitor connection or the ssvhs but there is from the digital out.
the tv button is greyed out so you cannot enable it.
i have tried the windows drivers,the drivers that came with the card and d/l the latest drivers.
all with the same result.

I was trying to run second life, and it listed two video cards that are compatible. One of these was the "ATI Radeon 8500, 9250, or better" (as they put it)

I have a Radeon 9200 Pro Family, and was wondering if the only reason it won't work with second life is because it needs new drivers, or if even that won't make a difference. If there are new drivers to get, where can i get them?

For some time now, I have been having troubles with my ATI Radeon 9200 128 bit AGP graphics card. In graphic applications such as Counter-Strike 1.6, my graphics acceleration locks up during gameplay. The results of this are the following:
1.) The game locks up, and the screen flashes once.
2.) I receieve an error message stating that my computer has recovered from the lock-up, but must be restarted to save the settings.

ATI Radeon 9200 Specifications:

I have recently updated my CATALYST Version to 5.9
Within the package came several updates such as ...
-Display Driver

-Catalyst Control Center

I have gone into Hardware Devices and my graphics card is working properly.

The only assumption I have is that my hardware is damaged. The card itself could possibly be damaged and/or the AGP insertion point could be damaged as well.

This is where another question is rasied. Why is it my computer has troubles running counter-strike 1.6, but it can run World of Warcraft with absolutely no troubles? Heck, I can even run Warcraft III... Read more

Do you mean it won't stay at those settings???

did you uninstall the drivers from the previous card?
that can cause all sorts of problems if you didn't.

Go to ADD/Remove Programs in the Control Panel, remove all video Drivers, restart, and install the ATI ones for your new card.

That should do the trick.

++You might want to try being a bit clearer in future - I'm just guessing that thats what you are trying to say++

I recently purchased a radeon 9200 and I am trying desparately to use the TV out function. The video card appears to support both S-Video and Composite out. The TV I am connecting has S-Video and the standard A/V inputs.

The connector that came with the card has a video jack on one side, s-video on the other, and a video-to-composite adapter. When i connect the TV the display is all messed up and nothing is visible except for an occasional blur of a desktop. I've tried composite to s-video and s-video to video and no luck. Any advice?

I am new to all of this so I'm sure i am doing something wrong. Thanks in advance!

I think you may have to go to the display properties and change to TV.

Right click on desktop, choose properties, last tab (Settings), Advanced button, then on the next screen that pops up, to to Displays. It should offer the TV as an option.

He wanted his games to run smoother and I decided to bios flash the video card to a 9600 XT which failed :dead: and I somehow managed by using a PCI card to flash back to the original bios. After boot it worked flawlessly, :angel: but when checking in the display properties, settings, adapter it says unavailable on all of them. :suspiciou So I deleted the ATI drivers and reinstalled them, but failed still it said unavailable. So i formatted the computer again and installed the ATI drivers, and it still says the same thing. If anyone can help me please much help would be appreciated. :grinthumb

ousyous, welcome to the Seven Forums.

The reason you can't find a Windows 7 driver for it is the same as the desktop version of it, there isn't one because ATI never made one and hasn't made a driver for that range of laptop and desktop cards since about 2006. The best you're going to get for it is to use the last XP driver for it from the laptop manufacturer as the desktop version of that driver will not install on it.

I'm running an HP a3040n machine with Win XP PRO/SP3 with all MS updates.
Would this be the correct sequence to re-install the 9200 Radeon?
1. Boot machine into Safe Mode
2. Use add/remove programs to remove all (old) ATI files
3. Install 9200 Radeon card to PCI slot
4. Shut down computer
5. connect VGA cable from 9200 to monitor
6. Re-boot machine into bios and set primary video to PCI
7. Install latest driver from ATI

Thanks for looking...

A:Reinstall Radeon 9200

Do step 3 after step 4. Don't want to be physically installing (or removing) hardware while the PC is on.

I would also add a step 2.5 where you delete anything your display adapter from device manager too.

6 is necessary if you are going from onboard to a PCI card. Are you sure the 9200 is a step up though? Thats a really old card. What is the onboard card, something like a Rage Fury?

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Uninstall all your graphics card drivers, for Nvidia and ATI from add remove programmes in your control panel. Reboot your machine.

Download and run the free Driver cleaner pro programme from HERE . Read the instructions carefully. Boot into safe mode, then run the cab cleaner first for both Nvidia and ATI. then, run the driver cleaner for both NVidia and ATI.

Reboot your computer and install the latest drivers for your Current video card, from the ATI website.

Alright I just want to post this very simple fix to a problem people have Radeon 9200 128mb and running Battlefield 2

First off you need to look at the system specs on your game box, make sure yours matches them or is above.

Here are my specs (if you have these or above you should be fine)
Athlon XP 2800+
nForce2 Motherboard
512 mb DDR RAM
120 GB Wester Digital HD(Doesnt really matter if you 40 or above)
Radeon 9200 128mb

After updating your ATi Drivers and Direct X of course you usually freeze right after the intro movie, where a woman's voice says welcome, blah blah. The a VCU Recovery Crash Log comes up and the game crashes.

I spent all day looking for a solution to no avail. But after tweakin around a bit I solved the problem

Set you AGP from 8x to 4x (in the Catlyst Control Center or right click on the ATi icon on the toolbar and go to Display Settings>Smartgear), and there you go all fixed (a system restart is required). When you first launch the game it will be on lowest settings, keep it this way if you want smooth framerate and performance! And whenever you fire your gun in game, it will freeze for maybe 2 seconds, another frustrating problem. Restart the game and that problem is solved.

Alright thats it for me, just wanted to say hi to everyone, hope this helps someone. Go Battlefield 2!

usually problems like these are caused by heat and/or failing power supplies. what are your power supply's specs? i'd try running the computer with the case opened, and see if the problems persist. opening the case makes the system generally cooler in operation and may clue in on whether your problem is heat related.

I just installed a new driver for my RADEON 9200 from https://support.ati.com/ics/support/KBAnswer.asp?questionID=640

(Catalyst 5.11 Windows XP)

So currently this is installed and my computer's performance is awful. When I maximize or minimize a window it takes like 5 seconds. And also when i scroll through a page in firefox everything is all "shifty" There was a help thing on something like this and they called it slow re drawing, but it didnt help.

My old driver worked fine, but the reason i was getting a new one was because when I play Day of Defeat: Source, there are 3 white lines that run across the screen and i thought it was a driver problem.
Before this i tried letting windows pick the newest driver by going to the hardware device manager, but the driver it installed didn't go along with XP i guess.

So i either need to fix the driver making my computer lag, or i need to fix the 3 lines that are ruining my game.

A friend of mine did an odd thing.
Before installing his new Radeon 9200 vid card. I told him to uninstall his present vid card drivers. Instead he uninstalled the old card from the device manager.
Now that was screwy but shouldn't have been that big of a deal.
Right now he's stuck in default VGA mode. Old drivers are uninstalled. New card and drivers installed but it's stuck in default VGA. The device manager shows two items under display adapters. One is default VGA other is ATI Radeon labeled as secondary. It also shows it as a PCI as opposed to an AGP
Reading through Microsofts knowledge base it appears to be a known bug with the AGP showing as a PCI.
I've told him to get the Win2000 updates/hotfixes but was wondering if anyone else had input.

Ive gotten this video card maybe 3 months ago when I was in Bosnia. Originaly on the box it said the card is 128 mb ram but when I check the specs for it once I installed it the ram size was 64 mb and ive tried everything from dusting off the card to cleaning my whole pc and updating the drivers for the card and it still shows up as 64mb so if anyone has a solution post it please.

A:Radeon 9200 se series

well in your bios there should be option saying AGP aperture Size or something like that make sure its set to 128mb.

Hello all. I have a Radeon 9200 256mb graphics card. Now I know this card is good enough to run Knights of the Old Republic I and II. I can play both games for about 15 minutes before my computer crashes. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Get the latest drivers for your graphics card from ATI and download the latest patches for the games. Unpatched KOTOR II had problems with ATI cards.

Hi guys, first sorry for my bad english it's not my native one so..

I have a problem with the other PC, which is having video card - Ati Radeon 9200SE.Everything worked fine yesterday but some thing lagged so i download and install the newest drivers for the video card and from then the problems starts :
Firstly my screen blinks and turns black is very slow, and Grand Theft Auto : San Andreas which runs perfectly fine yesterday can now be played for like 2/3 minutes then it freezes and the pc need a restart.I tried many solutions such as rolling back drivers, update drivers, going back to the old drivers that i was before, using driver sweeper to clean the driver files but nothing helps.So any ideas beside reinstalling the OS how to get everything good and going again ?

Thanks in advance.
