    I have been having quite a few difficulties with installing a
    Vista-compatible Radeon driver for a Radeon 9550 256MB AGP card.

    I have tried the following:
    1) default ATI Radeon 9550 driver (WDDM) -> code 43 (device reported
    2) Standard VGA driver -> code 10 (device cannot start)
    3) ATI Radeon 9550 driver for Vista Beta 2 -> code 43 (device reported
    4) ATI Radeon 9550 driver for Vista Beta 1 -> code 37 (driver could not be
    5) Catalyst 6.6 XP driver -> okay (but no Aero as it is not WDDM)

    The Performance Rating and Tools section cannot detect the video card, nor
    gaming graphics. However, the ratings are 2.0 and 3.2, respectively.

    The motherboard is a ASUS P4S8X-X with a SiS 648 chipset. I have tried
    replacing the default Vista AGP driver with a SiS XP driver, but it makes no

    I have reinstalled Vista Beta 2 onto a clean, formatted parition before
    installing each driver. I have also used the "Check for Solutions" utility,
    but so far, no solution has been found.

    I have searched the Vista newgroups and the Internet, but the few solutions
    which I found did not work.

    I realise this is a beta build, but it would be very nice to personally see
    what Aero looks like as there has been a lot of fuss about it.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    When I installed Vista I had a cheap video card and therefore had no aero
    I upgraded my card to a ATI Radeon 9550 128mb and when I booted up it all
    worked with Vista built in driver. Glass works great with this card. Hope
    you get it fixed.
