Problems with Radeon 9550 driver installation

  1. I just got a Radeon 9550 graphics card, and I've been having problems trying to install the thing. When I try to install it from the CD, a message pops up saying:

    Setup was unable to complete installation.
    Try to setup your display adapter with a standard VGA driver before running setup

    When I try installing it with Windows New Hardware Wizard, I get the message:

    An error occured during the installatioin of this device
    - The data is invalid

    I really need help, what should I do? :confused:

    This is the data invalid solution - Data invalid solution
    For modem read video/graphics/display That might be allow you to install.

    You might have toboot into VGA mode(tap F8 AT Startup,select VGA mode) and then try installing.

    Further possibilities if that didn`t work -Make sure your system is free of any remnants of previous video card drivers
    use this - Driver cleaner If necessary.

    If you get problems look here - Helpful link and Helpful link and Helpful link

    Don`t say you haven`t got enough information :)

    Thank you very much, it worked! After I sorted out the "Data invalid" problem, I was able to install everything else. Again, thanks! :)

    vga mode still gives me the same problem

    tried the driver removal tool still nothing

    I could not make any sence of the link to the modem page.

    a little direction would be helpful
