Excellent.
Version 9.4 works on w2k SP4 with HD 3650 AGP, but it has conflict with PCI USB card.
Version 9.5 not installs on my PC. Is 9.5 supporting AGP?

Finally a graphics driver for my 4870x2 card! Thank you SO much!!! :thumbup

Edit: just to add there wasn't a Display Adapter listed on my PC, so I had to choose one of the display devices that had a question mark next to it and update the driver from there... in fact I had to do it twice, with the VGA compatible display device too. Then it worked, although it's 16 bit rather than 32 bit colour depth only, but hey, it's better than 640x480 8-bit graphics eh?

My Windows 2000 sometimes freezed with version 9.9.

Soon I'll buy HD5870x2.

Hi there!

I have an ATI All-in-wonder HD (3650) PCI-e graphics card that I'm trying to use with Windows 2000 SP4. I tried using the Radeon Win 2K drivers on Blackwingcat's website but I could not get any of them to work. Upon reboot, I keep getting the blue screen of death! I was wondering if any of those drivers will work with PCIe cards or are they all for AGP only? If so, does any one have any idea where I can get a Win2K PCIe driver for my card?

Thanks so much.

7th,Mar ATI Catalyst 9.3 Driver for Win2000 Released.

Thank you for these, I have quite a few win 2000 boxes with Radeon cards (using 9550, x1650XT and 3x HD4650's) and have been quite unhappy with what ATI[AMD] have done over this as I have been a long time user and always happy with AMD.

The result being that I have 3 9500 GT cards (got one day when I had said I would never use ATI again) sitting doing nothing and a Core 2 Duo box running XP pro as a test box that never seems to do any work, or even get switched on.

I used to have a go at the driver/installer myself until I gave up some time ago, its nice to see someone else doing a better job ;-)

Still using some versions from your site almost without any problems.
With my x1650XT PCIe and HD4650's.

Using ATI/AMD 9.12 ATI 9.12 beta 2 fixed win2k driver has been faultless.

But the 10.1 versions has some problems with the x1650XT PCIe card when on my server 2003 box.
Just kept saying no driver found ?

I might have another go, but TBH it works so well as is why change ?

Good morning/afternoon Blackwing and thanks for keeping ATI cards running on W2k.

I have been trying to install your latest Catalyst drivers for my AGP HD 4670. I installed the KB829884 for Windows 2000 executable listed on your site then the Catalyst 11.05. The drivers apparently get installed but after I reboot the monitor displays with only standard VGA mode drivers and I tried several times. DXDiag does not show any display tab either after this. The Catalyst 10.11 install fine but when I try to save a game in Fallout 3 the computer BSOD. Your Catalyst 10.05 work fine so far with no issues but would like to try new drivers.

I am running W2K SP4, Feb. 2010 DirectX, AGP HD 4670. I tried installing your June 2010 DirectX but I am having trouble as well.

Hope you can help. Thanks in advance.

Hi, algeeba.

AGP HD 4xxx series also have many problem on Windows XP.
Some Japanese said same thing as you on My blog .

If BSod cause of DirectX's extended function, Your Catalyst goes to work fine, when you install my DirectX Extension Package.

Dx9W2kFx14a.exe

I think stable Catalyst drivers are 9.4/9.7/9.10/(10.2)/10.5/10.7.

Thank you for your reply Blackwing.

I will try your DirectX extension package and see if I can install the 10.11 with no problem and keep you updated.

Do you recommend to not even bother installing the 11.x Catalysts?

Hi,

I think that you had better install by 11.2. If you want to install later version driver.
Some games freeze on play prologue movie Although I'm using 11.5 driver.

Good morning/afternoon Blackwing.


O.k., the drivers I tried last night were 10.7, 10.11, 11.1, 11.3 and 11.5. I will try 11.2 tonight.

I executed your DirectX Extension package but 10.11 still crashed to BSOD when trying to save a game in Fallout 3.
10.7 worked good. 11.3 and 11.5 would install but only standard VGA mode drivers would install when restarting W2K.
11.1 would install but ATI Tray Tools would not update the Catalyst version in its system information. DxDiag and Device Manager would show that 11.1 drivers were installed, though.

What would cause my system to install standard VGA mode drivers when trying to install 11.3 and 11.5?


I tried the 11.2 drivers last night and they also loaded up with the standard VGA mode drivers.

You just saved my day. For some reasons I need W2K from time to time on my Machine which I just equipped with a Radeon HD 3450 from club. Afterwards I only had VGA at 640x40 available, which made the system almost unusable. I tried your version of the 10/11-Driver (the newer seem to need additional drivers) and it works like a charm. Many, many thanks!

Hi blackwingcat, hope you are still watiching the thread. I have not seen this question answered earlier.

I have expanded your driver file ati5k2k1.zip, hoping to run an ASUS EAH5450 SILENT PCIE2. I first followed instructions from elsewhere on the 'net to completely clean my system of the old (Sapphire Radeon X300) ATI driver/software remnants.

My system is Windows 2000 Professional SP4+.

When following your directions to install your modified driver, while in the Upgrade Device Driver Wizard, I am seeing an extra screen not mentioned, causing a problem:

Select the manufacturer and model of your hardware ...
followed by an empty box titled 'Models:'
Seems the user is supposed to select an entry shown inside this box and since a selection from an empty box is not possible, the 'Next' button is non-functional. So I can't get past this to complete the driver installation.

There is a 'Have Disk' button here, as well, but if I enter the same information as you previously told us to do, that is accepted, but it loops back to this same screen, from which there is no exit.

What can I do to complete the installation of your driver? I feel I am so close, yet so far ... :huh:

:) Thanks for your driver and for your help.

I worked-around one problem by installing Windows' native driver for ATI Radeon-compatible cards, then changing that to the bwc driver, before rebooting. Now the models box was populated with the 5000 series, and I selected the right one. I could see the bwc driver files being installed.

But the unpleasant surprise came on reboot, as it proceeded only to the point when Windows began to load. I suspect something crashed windows as the screen blanked momentarily and then the boot started again.

So, back to the drawing board ... Is there anything that would be helpful to blackwingcat to work around this?

P.S.: Going beyond my question, please let me know if you see anything wrong with the way I'm going about this, since ... many others are reporting success in running their 5000-series boards under Win2K. Am I doint anything different??

Hi blackwingcat, or anyone else who can help: I gave it my last shot.

I restored the Windows 2000 image that was working with the old card, then inserted the EAH5450 and rebooted. This time I didn't try to clean up the system from the previous driver, but just followed bwc's directions at the start of this thread.. I thought I might have been cleaning out something that had best be left.

I used the same trick to allow bwc's driver to populate the model box with the various numbers, selected the right one, and saw the driver files installing. Windows then showed ATI 5450 as the installed driver, in Device Manager.

On reboot we got as far as when the desktop should first appear, but instead the monitor screen went black and after about one second, the system started to reboot. Just as before.

So I will have to begin searching again for a solution. There must be one, as there are reports of success with these drivers. Much appreciated if someone could point out what the difference is, between what these folks did, and what I am doing. :huh:

If BSod cause of DirectX's extended function, Your Catalyst goes to work fine, when you install my DirectX Extension Package, Dx9W2kFx14a.exe

Hoping to do anthing to solve the problem, I installed the above file before installing the bwc drivers, and then reboooted to give the new drivers control.


I didn't get a blue screen, but is was as before: the boot never gets to the desktop, but the screen blacks out and then the system goes back to the BIOS check. I think it is not accepting the driver ...

I will check back from time to time to see if there are any developments, here. I can find no other reliable sources on the Internet for running these newer cards on Windows 2000.

Hi, RonCam

Please tell me customized ATI driver version and Your device's Vendor ID and Device ID.
:)
fx) VEN_1234&DEV_5678

We know HD5xxx has some problem. Windows 2000 user's best ATI VGA Card is HD4xxx.
And ATI Driver 11 has some compatibility problem on HD5xxx.
if your VGA is not stable, try to rollback 10.x driver.

Yes, you have so many different versions and you want to know exactly which one I am using. The above 'bwc-customized' file was downloaded from the link associated with the following text, as best as I can copy from the English translation of the original page:

  • For the ATI Radeon 5000 Series Driver for Win2000
  • 2010/2/12 Version 10.1alpha (AGP+HDMI) 2010/2/12 Version 10.1Alpha (AGP + HDMI)
  • 10.5以降は共通 10.5 Since the common

The exact filename I was able to obtain at this link is: ati5k2k1.zip

Identification numbers from my VGA ASUS RADEON HD5450 Silent 512MB HDMI/DDR2PCIE2 card:
VenID: 0x1002
DevID: 0x68E1

I had to boot Windows 7 to see this, using its 'generic' VGA driver. Under Windows 2000 (so far, I have no functional driver for the new card, under this OS) it was identified only as 'VGA'.

My need is to get enough basic functionality and stability from the new EAH5450 card so I may occasionally drop back into Windows 2000. I am now set-up with a dual boot between that and Windows 7. So my demands on the card in Windows 2000 will not be great -- I will be happy if I can see the contents of my office suite, at the proper resolution.

Thanks very much for picking up on this thread! :)

[edit] Blackwingcat, could you take a look back to the part of this thread, to where I describe that little 'undocumented glitch' during my installation, the one that needed the work-around? I wonder if this resulted in a defective driver installation, and that's why Windows wouldn't go through a boot, and maybe there's nothing wrong with the driver at all? Just guessing. What do you think? [/edit]

Please let me know if you need more information.
