ATI radeon xpress 200m drivers for winxp

By lusitche ·
Hi Guys,
I recently acquired a Toshiba Satellite Laptop Model No:AI35-S2386.
The specs are as follows:
- Intel? Pentium? dual-core processor T2080
- 1.73GHz, 1MB L2, 533MHz FSB
- ATI Radeon? Xpress 200M Chipset
- 512MB RAM
- ATi Radeon Xpress 200M Graphics Card(128MB)
- 80 Gig Hdd
The OS is Winvista Home Basic

After operating with it for a while i found that it was too slow.

I then decided to downgrade it to windows XP Pro with SP2.

it is then that i come across the drivers problem.Display drivers in this case.
I've tried to download the drivers on the net but i couldn't get the right ones at all.

Could somebody please help?

Try Omega Drivers

by Koks In reply to ATI radeon xpress 200m dr ...

Hi lusitche!

Display drivers for ATI Radeon Xpress 200M are not maintained by ATI anymore so you will not find any on ATI's site. You have two options: download display driver from Toshiba (if there are any) or download custom catalyst drivers (Omega Drivers work excellent for me).
Here is the link for Omega drivers:

There are other custom catalyst drivers out there, but it seems that only Omega drivers support Radeon Xpress 200M.

ATI AMD Support Page

Download the Integrated Video driver from the ATI AMD web site.

So long as Toshiba did not do anything special with the video BIOS the reference drivers should work just fine.

I found ATI radeon driver

by obarretov In reply to ATI radeon xpress 200m dr ...

Lusitche, I have the same machine and I removed Vista and installed XP, I found many drivers for all hardwares, compaq is a good source of this drivers, you have be sure compaq machine has the same hardware that yours, BUt i never found any video driver, even in ATI website, they offer the Catalyst 7.12 but doesn'n work, I followed the instruction found here with Omega drivers and now the video is working perfect.
By the way, I found two devices in the Device Manager with the yellow warning but I never knew what kind they are, I think all my harwares are working properly, Do you have any idea what hardware they are ????
Please let me know through this or to my emai l obarretov(at)

Device By Connection

by TheChas In reply to I found ATI radeon driver

Sometimes when you are having problems identifying a hardware device that needs a driver installed it helps to change the Device Manager view to show Devices by Connection.

You can also compare the original configuration of your laptop to what devices are showing up in device manager to determine what is missing.

My first suspect is child devices of your sound device. Some drivers don't do a good job of properly installing the child devices of a multi-media adapter.

Another trick for finding "!" devices is to remove them and allow Windows to attempt to install the drivers on the next boot.

ATI radeon xpress 200m DRIVER SOLUTION...

by landovill In reply to I found ATI radeon driver

I have the same problem installing the same driver on my Toshiba Satellite and just discovered the problem. most of the ATI drivers we download can work but they sometimes doesent recognize the chipset name so you will see a pop up stating "no chip set found" bla bla bla

A manual instillation Will solve this
1.Download and install ATI Catalyst Control Center. try this link
2.The instillation will extract the files to your hard drive Eg. C:\ATI\SUPPORT
In the folder "SUPPORT" they are two other folders open the folder label "8-3_xp32_dd_59746" you will see a folder label "XP_INF" thats all you need

To install the the Driver open device Manager
1. locate the "Video controller"
2. Right click Select "Update Driver"
3. Hardware update wizard appears select "No Not this time" and click next
4. select "install from a list or specific location." Click next
5. select "Don't search I will Choose the driver to install" Click next
6. Search for "Display Adapters"
7. Click "have disk" and then Browse
in the "XP_INF" Folder is the File "CX_59746.inf" bubble Click to open and then click OK
8. scroll to ATI radeon xpress 200m series select and click next
9. Update driver Warning Click "YES" and enjoy your Graphic cards FULL POTENTIAL.

Omega driver?????

by tragor4096 In reply to ATI radeon xpress 200m dr ...

If you download and use the omega driver on the toshiba A135 you wil be limited to a 64 meg graphics buffer as the omega driver is worthless as far as catalyst control. try finding a 3rd party mod for the 8.8 catalyst driver and you will be much happier I will find a link and post it soon.

ATI 200M Driver

by eagle7500 In reply to ATI 200M Driver

I found all drivers needed to convert toshiba A135-2256 laptop to xp at the following site,
They put them in a single download file and gives instructions on how to install and to fix the unknown devices also.(It is a rar file and will need to be opened with winrar.) Worked for A135-S2256, A135-S2276, A135-2356 according to the listed responses. Hope this helps and saves you some time.
