    ATI Mobility Radeon 9700

    Hello,

    I have an Amilo 1630 Fujitsu Siemens Notebook and I'm running Vista 5308 on
    it. But the ATI driver isn't working. I can't change anything (resolution
    etc.) and I can't see any glass effect. Does anyone know why?
    Thanks
    Babsi

    You have to ensure that your card has a supported WDDM (Windows Driver
    Display Model) minimum 64-MBs, with support for Direct X 9, with support for
    Shader 2.0
    Pixel technologies.

    Have you contacted ATI about this to find out if it will be fixed in a
    future build of Vista?

    Maybe it's not the card but the card's BIOS? I saw
    5270, 5308 and 5342 running on a notebook with
    SXGA+-screen (1400x1050) and an ATi 9600
    with 64 MB. Glass was working "out of the box"
    (read: without downloading the driver provided by
    ATi) . Funny enough, the ATi-driver messed up Glass
    at least once (AFAIR).

    BTW: almost every other site says that 128 MB
    of graphics RAM were required for resolutions
    above SXGA.

    <http://www.chip.de/artikel/c1_artikelunterseite_19456969.html?tid1=&tid2=>

    Seems either not to be true for the Betas or the RAM
    doesn't necessarily to be available locally (on the card)
    but can be taken form the systems RAM via the AGP-
    bus?

    Regards,

    Kai-Uwe
