I just put a new hard drive into my computer and according to my Device Manager my ATI Radeon 4670 HD graphics card is detected but not installed. I do not see the ATI 4670 listed as a playback option in my Sounds and Settings in my Control Panel, just the integrated SoundMAX Digital Audio is listed and enabled. I have tried enabling and disabling different settings in my BIOS and I have tried using the ATI installation CD as well as the Windows Hardware Update Wizard with NO success.
I have a yellow exclamation point in the Other Devices PCI Device category of my Device Manager. It says: The drivers for this device are not installed (code 28). I have dusted, cleaned and reassembled my tower; all power cords...everything looks right. I can't seem to fix this situation, what have I done wrong and what is the solution?
Please send help
In my Device Manager it appears my ATI graphics card is listed in the Display Adapters category as well as the Other Devices category. Under Display Adapters it has listed: ATI Radeon 4600 series, PCI Slot 10 (PCI bus 1, device 0, function 0), and its properties reads: This device is working properly. Now, conversely, under the Other Devices category it has listed: PCI Device, PCI Slot 10 (PCI bus 1, device 0, function 1), and its properties reads: The drivers for this device are not installed (code 28).
I have tried to install (& uninstall\reinstall) these drivers from the ATI installation CD, using the Windows Hardware Update Wizard, and by going to the ATI and Sapphire Radeon web sites and NOTHING has worked.
I have also tried enabling and disabling different audio BIOS settings with NO success.
What is the solution here? Please help.
Okay, Problem resolved.
Here is what happened: I had a complete hard drive crash. -I was receiving a DOS screen repeating the message: 'Disk Partition' with a string of numbers upon start up- I wiped the hard drive and reinstalled windows XP. My windows XP only installed Service Pack 2 on the clean drive, so I updated to Service Pack 3 on the Microsoft Updates site. After doing this I was able to -for some reason- update the drivers for my ATI Radeon 4670 HD graphics card. I was able to use both the ATI installation CD and the Windows Hardware Update Wizard without a glitch.
Now I don't know if the update to Service Pack 3 was the cure here or if i just simply got lucky on this one, but I'll take it.
Thanks to those pondering my fix.
