    Either I'm blind or I cannot find it. I go to prpoerties, and where I change the resoultion it just says Mobility Radeon 9200. I click on advanced, and it gives me lots of versions:Bios, driver (which is 6.something, which proves it's not the Catalyst) and others. I am really confused. Could you please explain it more in detail?
    Thanks.

    It could be a manufatucer's verion. which would probably be older you could probably find a date on it somewhere.

    I have a problem when installing the new Catalyst version (4.5) on my laptop. When it comes to the Setup window it gives me a "warning" message (actually "error" message as it does not go any further after that) saying:
    "Setup was unable to find components that can be installed on your current hardware or software configuration. Please make sure you have the required hardware or software."
    Any ideas why?

    very odd, as long as you have the right video card it should work fine.
    Have you tried the omega drivers?

    quesoyyo i had the same problem even when i uninstalled the ATI Control Panel as they say, i was trying to solve it by all means ,instaling new ordinary drivers setting my VideoCARD properties to Standart VGA, and so on and so on ,and lats i decided this way.Just down load another version of The Catalyst Drivers, it will work prefectly. It's a pitty but i can not remember with wich ver. of the Omega Drivers gave me this ERR.
    i hope i was usefull to u.

    I am using the omega drivers now. Oddly, they decreased my aquamark score by about 100, yet games play better. I previously could not run painkiller at above 1024x768 without studdering, and now i can.

    yeah, it seems more and more benchmarks can not be used to measure performance, and you must look more at how games perform.

    I just installed the omega driver for the second time the first time I was not happy with it, because I noticed no improvment. I was wondering is it possible to only install the Radlinker? Because over clocking helps a lot! but the omega drivers alone lowered my score a little. I don't understand if the omega drivers are better and lower my score? The aquamark3 and 3DMark03 are grpahics test running graphics engines right? just like a game would? so if they run slower shouldn't games? I was just thinking of only using the radlinker and not the omega drivers, what do you guys think? my original aquamark 3 was 19,796 but with only omega it was like 19,750 and then I over clocked mine from GPU: 310MHz Memory: 190MHz to....
    GPU: 378MHz Memory: 256.5MHz my new aquamark3 score is = 24,275 big difference!
