Need help installing Radeon 9250 driver

  1. Hi guys! :wave: new comer here.

    I recently got an ATI Radeon 9250 256mb (RX9250-TD256), I was able to install the card to extent that I have display on my monitor and I am able to use it. The problem is that I can't install the driver. I'm having an error message that says "setup was unable to find components that can be installed on your current hardware or software configuration..."

    I previously have an nVidia FX5200, I'm fairly sure I have already uninstalled the drivers but I have no way of ensuring that all the components have already been removed. Anyway, I have also disabled the integrated vga.

    I tried to install the driver in safe mode but it gives me a different error message: "setup was unable to complete the installation try to setup your display adapter with a standard vga driver before running setup"

    Here are my system specs:
    Intel Celeron Processor 2.00 GHz with 256mb RAM
    MoBo: Micro Star International P4M266-8233
    Chipset: VIA P4m266(VT8751)
    BIOS: Phoenix Technologies (latest version)
    AGP version 2.0

    I'm a noob at this so if you need any more information I'd be glad to provide.

    Going to ati from nvidia and visa/versa can be a pain. Do this in order.
    re-download new driver, save it to your desktop
    un-install both the nvidia and ati drivers (go to control panel/programs)
    nvidia should be listed as nvidia drivers, ati as catilyst---something like that
    re-boot your system and allow the generic windows driver to install
    run install program you downloaded from your desktop
    if that doesn't work you'll need a driver-cleaner program, I believe there are free versions floating around, google for it
    good luck

    Hi there! thanks for the very quick reply, I've got a problem with the generic windows driver too. I can't seem to install it, it says that the installation failed.

    Try clicking on your adapter in Control Panel and uninstalling.

    Reboot and let Windows find it.

    I tried that, but when windows attempts to install generic driver it always ends up not installing it saying it can not find the driver. I tried connecting to the internet but still the same result.
