Mafia the Game problem.. probably with graphic card (ATI Mobility Radeon X2300)

Q: Mafia the Game problem.. probably with graphic card (ATI Mobility Radeon X2300)

Heya.. I've been searching for an answer to this question all over the internet for about a week now, and I still haven't found anything, so I thought, that I write here...
There's absolutely no problems with MAFIA installation, as I know, many people do. Also, I've reinstalled it about five times, so don't recommend that to me. When I open the game, then first of all, NOD32 determines something.. if you think, that it would help, if I wrote here, what it actually says, then I will write it here, but you gotta let me know. Besides, there's nothing that could be a virus, I have original CD's, right from Gathering of Developer's. Then I close NOD32 form task manager, and open Mafia again (the last time nothing but the NOD note appeared). This time is almost the same, only without the NOD notification. When I look at the task manager processes, then Game.exe appears for a half of a second, but that's all, and even that isn't happening every time. Once, way back, about 3 months ago p) it gave me 'Init error'. Then I looked up in the internet and Illusion Softworks had said, that most of the 'Init errors' comes from the graphic card drivers or not updated DirectX. DirectX is up to date, but here comes my problem, there's just no drivers for my graphic card on ATI website. Ofcourse, I've looked from other sites but still notning normal..

Now clearly: If I open Game.exe, nothing happens, what to do? I would be very happy, if anyone would understand my messy speech and would help me.

My computer's graphic card acts strange:
On ac adaptor power the windows 7 bootscreen freezes long before the Microsoft logo is formed, if i power on my laptop only with battery power everything works fine...does anyone know how to solve this?...I'm assuming the graphic card does this because when i select "PCI Lock" in the boot menu, windows loads with a standard vga adapter driver and bootscreen runs as it should.
Need your help!

A:ATI Mobility Radeon X2300 problem...help please!

Then you may have a driver incompatibility.

When you boot on battery only, your notebook will generally limit the video card to save on battery life. This may be why your computer works when you use it on battery only.

Try booting up in safe mode and see if that works as well.

Next, go to your device manager and see if there are any items listed with an exclamation mark next to them. If so, report what they are.

Hello,

I have another older laptop from 2008 I use from time to time. Anyways, it comes with the ATI Mobility Radeon X2300 GPU. The Graphics driver it has is version 8.x. Although the latest driver version for ATI GPU's is 11.x. I can't install this version as it is supposedly not supported by ATI. So could anyone help me get or make a modded driver for the GPU so that I could run the 11.x driver.

I have a fairly new HP Pavilion dv7-4177nr notebook(Win7x64 Home Premium) and have had all sorts of issues and the latest is the graphic control center which is usually on my desktop (the old right click thing) and for some reason it has disappeared and I have uninstalled my graphic driver (from HP) and reinstalled it several times to no avail. I don't get it...in the beginning in March of this yr I had to uninstall/reinstall right out of the box because it did not recognize the second switchable card (4250 on battery and 5470 on plug in) so if anybody has a head up on this let me know. HP has gotten to the point of telling me to have it sent in and I've done that twice already, new Hard Drive and second time a new HDMI port. And I know I probably got a lemon but geeze already.

So I've installed Windows 8 Release Preview and I enjoy it so far. Though, I have a major problem. When I upgraded from Win764bit i noticed that my WoW FPS went from 60fps to 15. It seemed like I was only running on the integrated graphics card from my first gen i3 processor. It suddenly gave me a message that the current installed catalyst center is not compitable with the current graphics driver. So I installed the latest catalyst center for Win8 release preview, and my FPS went straight up! But then I noticed that i could't adjust my brightness. It was stuck on either 100, 50 or 0% depending on restarttimes and such (really weird) but the brightness was depending on the Intel graphics card. So I reinstalled it and the brightness was now fine again but... The ATI graphics wont work. What Is weird is that when I install a new driver, i have to choose the second monitor to see my screen as my main monitor is disabled (running on a laptop) instead of having my main laptop enabled. But, when my screen is extended right after the Intel install the ATI card and brightness work probably, but when i select 1 screen only it disables. In the device manager it says they both work probably, my in the task bar the catalyst client aint showing up.

So basicly they cant both run on the same time and my main monitor is displayed as my second.

Dear Sirs, good evening.
I ask for your help in the present clarification, if possible, pf.
*
I have a laptop, model Satellite L650 and since the last two weeks the screen resolution has changed - I came to have a maximum resolution of 1024X768. The settings do not allow you to change to higher resolution.
*
It has ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500 graphics card
*
I tried online to understand what was going on and found evidence that it may have to do with Windows 10. AMD's own website states that:
*
"Products That Do Not Support Windows? 10
AMD Radeon ? HD 4000 Series products and older are not certified to support Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM) 1.2 or higher and therefore do not have driver support for Windows? 10.

I knew about this problem going in to Windows 7, I figured ATI or Dell would have a fix for me by now but they don't. Wasn't a big deal until I got my new 23' 1900x1080 monitor. Now I am having this problem.

Since I got windows 7 its seems my ATI card has been on the fritz. I can't use Catalyst Control Center and when I play games they don't fill the screen on certain resolutions.

I recently got a new monitor and on its recommend resolution (1900x1080) it has about an inch black border around it. I've done some research and I believe I could solve this if I could open the Catalyst Control Center but I am unable to despite having tried to download multiple versions of the drivers.

I have a Dell Studio 15 if that makes any difference.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Problems with Windows 7 and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3400 Graphics card.

What do the display properties report the resolution as? If it's whatever the maximum is, perhaps the pixels don't take up the whole screen area (unusual on a flat panel, but possible I guess).
If it's set at a lower resolution than the maximum resolution of the screen, look for a setting that will allow stretching of the display (as opposed to letterbox). Might look something like this:
http://www.wii-tonic.net/alba-giotto...amp_ati_02.png

P.S: I noticed you mention 1900x1080. Are you sure it's not 1920x1080 (1080p)? If not, could that be the reason for the extra black border?

I just installed Windows 8 Enterprise Trial version on HP nx9420 laptop (2GHz dual core prosessor, 4gb memory, ATI Motility Radeon X1600 graphics card with 256mb own memory, 1680x1050 native display resolution) on second partition, side by side with existing
Windows 7. 
Installation succeeded perfect, except Windows 8 couldn't install, nor did find from Windows Update display driver for ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 graphics card. Only Microsoft generic display driver was installed and it offered maximum 1450x800 resolution,
so not laptops native 1680x1050 screen resolution. 
Windows 7 can install working ATI driver right from Windows Update for that graphics card (version 8.561.0.0 dated 1.12.2008). 
Laptop manufacturer HP has latest, old driver for Vista (version 8.453.0.0 dated 22.1.2008), so I installed that, selecting compatibility mode Vista with setup-program in Windows 8. That installed, but seems to have some problems, telling of missing library,
maybe with some ATI extra diplay manager software and C++ 2005 library, that it installed. 
MY QUESTION: Is there some problems with Windows 8 and that ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 graphics card? Why isn't the Windows 7 -version of ATI mobility radeon X1600 display driver available in Windows Update for Windows 8 too? 

A:ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 graphics card Windows 8 driver missing

So the problem with Windows 8 64-bit installation now is, that it can't install drivers for ATI Mobility Radeon x1600, neither from Win 8 64-bit installation media, nor from Windows Update -service - it just installs generic windows display driver. 
If one installs older Vista-version drivers for that graphics card, there may be problems that on boot laptop flickers several minutes display and then either gives Windows 8 login screen or just keeps flickering, varying time to time.

I know that there is latest legacy driver package at ATI, but that doesn't support Mobility Radeon Xnnn-models, it only supports plain Xnnn-models. If one tries to install with that, it says that graphic card (so mobility radeon -models) isn't supported.
 So these won't work.

ATi recommends completely uninstalling legacy drivers before accomplishing an upgrade. In my experience, I experience fewer gfx driver issue if I uninstall ANY driver before upgrading.

Did you DL the driver from ATi and use their wizard to select PCIe or AGP, Win7, x86 or x64. Just checking.

Recently formated my HP ZT3000 and since my sis works for MS, I have cheap copies of Win7 to install.

Won't recognize display device. REPEAT - THERE IS NO "Display Device" listed at all in Device Manager.

In addition, the Intel 82855PM - 3341 AGP controller is showing as not working, not enough resources.

I of course searched far and wide for solutions. Here's what I tried to far:

Install Omega ATI Drivers - no luck

Install XP 9200 drivers from HP in WinXP SP3 Compatibility mode, not dice - gives me error message to try installing a Standard VGA driver.

Enabled Remote Desktop and remoted in from another Win7 computer. No display device listed still and AGP controller still not working. Same VGA driver error if I try to install the drivers from HP.

Connected laptop to external monitor and tried the same, same results.

Help!

Hello,

  Hello,  I upgraded my HP Compaq 6910p from W7 to W8.1 64bit, but now my resolution can not be set to the correct value from 1440 x 900. But it goes to 1087 x 768, and in the "device manager" I see the display adapter as a Microsoft Basic Display Adapter and not as the Ati Radeon X2300 what it should be... Probably W8.1 is not supported and I have to go back to W7, or can someone tell me where I can find the driver???  Best regards,Henk.

A:HP Compaq 6910p Windows 8.1 ati-radeon x2300 driver

Hi: You are probably right, but give this a try before you reinstall W7... Download and run the W7 x64 amd radeon graphics driver from your notebook's support page. http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=3357379&swItemId=ob_78384_2&swEnvOid=4059 Then manually install the driver if the auto install doesn't work.

I have laptop ASUS K50AB, with 2 graphic cards, one is ATI Radeon HD 3200 and it works fine, but another one is ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 Series, and I have huge problems to instal drivers on it.

First I reinstaled my Windows 7 Ultimate x64, and all drivers are updated except this one(there is yellow mark on it), I tried to instal it automatic but it says that newest drivers are instaled allready, then I got some drivers from ati website and it still does not work :/

Can anyone help me please?

Best regards

A:ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 Series problem

You're likely having problems because you're trying to use two different GPU architectures together at the same time. Take out the 3200 and use the 4570 and you'll be good to go.

Unless I'm misunderstanding you, which I think I am now that I've read over it twice more:

the yellow exclamation mark denotes there was an error of some kind during installation. Did you see anything wrong in the generated report? You can try uninstalling the drivers from the Control Panel and upon restarting, boot into Safe Mode and use Driver Sweeper, check "ATI", hit Analyze and get rid of all of the files that come up after the scan.

Boot back into Windows and try the install again using the latest available drivers.

Hi,

Not sure if this is in the right place or not ...

For some reason (I don't know why!!!) I decided to check for the latest driver for the above graphics card that I've got in my Dell Studio laptop - running Win 7.

I downloaded the AMD autodetect tool and it said I should upgrade to a newer driver ... so I did.

Problem is, my screen resolution should be 1600 x 900 but when the update had finished (it crashed and re-booted) my screen looked like only 1152 x 864.

So, I went in to Control Panel to change the resolution back to 1600 x 900 but, that option didn't exist in the list of display sizes - the options ranged from 800 x 600 to 1152 x 864!

so I wonder what I've done and what I need to do to get my screen back to 1600 x 900.

Thanks in advance.

Your card is not made by ATI/AMD. It is powered by ATI. You need to get the customized driver from the manufacturer, that is, Dell.

I have a peculiar problem that I can't really attribute to anything in particular, as it started happening randomly over the past few weeks. I hadn't changed my drivers or installed any sort of virus program, nor did I install new hardware.

Whenever I try to play any sort of game--Age of Empires I and II, Gunbound, Zoo Tycoon, any of The Sims, Sim Tower, Yoot Tower, you name it--my computer shuts off. I'll get maybe five or ten minutes of gameplay, and then without warning, my computer will just turn off. It's a very strange thing, and it only happens when I try to play a game.

I've got a Toshiba Satellite P35-S611 laptop with 1.5 GB RAM, 3.33 GHz Pentium 4, ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 IGP video card with Omega drivers (updated a few days ago from stock drivers but to no avail), and it runs at 38C idle. When I alt tab to check the temp when starting a game, it's within one or two degrees of what it runs at idle. Previous inquiries about this model of computer in the past have told me, without even asking what my temp is, that it's an overheating problem common to all Toshibas. Yet I never had this problem up until a few weeks ago. Anyone have any ideas?
 

A:ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 IGP gaming problem.

Random shutdowns are usually caused by overheating. Don't just rely on the temperature sensors, sometimes they're inaccurate. Make sure it has proper ventilation around it at all sides, if you can see any dust, try cleaning it out. Make sure you're using it in a cool room, and that there is a good source of cool air near it.

Even if the temperature sensor says the temperature is the same, it might be placed near the CPU, while the GPU is getting too hot for the rest of the system to handle. Or, the heat, along with the power requirements, could be putting too much stress on a motherboard component, causing a power failure. Either way, it's most likely hardware related, and checking ventilation is the easiest first step.

And problem is that, after formatting computer i can't correctly install drivers to my graphic card. It's quite complicated, i tried a lot of solution but none of them worked. I am going to explain this as easily as I can.

It is quite old issue, however once again happened to be a problem after fresh reinstallation of Win 7 (disk format) and Aero not working at all. Transparency also disappeared.

Three days looking for new driver.
Maybe someone has the same problem - so it is solution:

1. starting from standard VGA installed by win 7 during system installation process

2. install old driver for for XP (delivered by notebook producer); it results with better resolution but not aero and not transparency.

3. download driver for Radeon Pro 9700 - catalyst_8-31-100_vista32_rtm

4. unpack it - it creates folder ATI/SUPPORT/catalyst ...

5. go to control panel, dvice manager, and update manually driver for graphics card browsing to this folder described above.

6. it updates driver asking in the end for restart,

7. restart - Aero is again !!!

enjoy!

maybe it is possible to bypass step 2 but I am not sure.

This laptop crashes after about 15 minutes and looking at the error log, it seems it could be a problem with the Radeon video adaptor. Uninstalling it and using the generic VGA driver, it works fine, but of course I have lost some of the features of the 9000. I've downloaded the latest driver from ATI, but this fails to install - cannot find inf file. Should I also look for an updated chipset - its a N251C1 motherboard with a VIA VT8366/A chip? Any help much appreciated as getting quite fed up that I can't solve this problem.

A:Drivers problem ATI Radeon Mobility 9600 Series

Uninstall the driver for your video card. Let Windows try to install one on it's own. It may actually get it working correctly on its own. Right now, the driver you have installed is what is making you blue-screen.

I recently installed Win 7 on my Dell XPS M1210 Laptop, from 2006, and it installed all drivers correctly itself except for the Synaptics touchpad. Windows should be able to handle your video card from 2010 with no problem.

If it says it cannot find a driver or it was not properly installed, then try this:
AMD Driver Autodetect
(I was unable to find your specific card manually on the site.)

Hi Tarundeep,
What is the current OS installed on the system? When did the issue start? Please provide more info about the issue with the video card.
Are there any bluescreens / system crashes when you are playing games or watching HD videos? 
Ensure you save all data first and then try flashing the BIOS - http://dell.to/29WcKn1- force the BIOS flash if required - http://dell.to/2hnhjs4
Try installing the video drivers from vendor site - http://bit.ly/1OwsREZ
Run a stress test on the system - http://dell.to/1NEc1Y4
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us. These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional.
If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.

Hello, users. First of all, sorry for my english. This post is to tell you my experience with this very know problem and how I solved it.
Computer specifications:

Dell Studio 1558 (bought in 2010)
Intel Core i5
4 GB of RAM
ATI/AMD Mobility Radeon HD 5470
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bits

 
Problem:

The problem started with the common error "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered...".
This was followed by several BSOD, associated to the video card (atikmpag.sys file).
Finally, after a couple of weeks, the laptop screen turned black, but the laptop was still in operation.

Considerations:

Is not a display problem.
Is not a driver problem.
Not even a video card problem.
It is a manufacturing problem, where the video card soldering is ruined because of overheating.
DO NOT LET TECHNICIANS TO REPLACE YOUR DISPLAY OR MOTHERBOARD.

Solution:

Take your laptop to a specialized technical service, and ask to do a "reballing process", which consists of desoldering, cleaning, and soldering again the video card.
This process requires the correct equipment, which is a high-precision infrared soldering machine. DO NOT LET TECHNICIANS TO USE A HEATING GUN.
Well, this is all I have to tell. I did this process and I have my laptop working better than ever. The costs of reballing, at least in my country, are very low compared to a motherboard replacement. For reballing it is 120 dollars, and for a motherboard replacement it i... Read more
