Hi, where can I download the Catalyst 12.6 which detect my AMD C-50 APU / AMD RADEON HD 6200 (6250 - Wrestler)?

Look:

Catalyst 11.9 have support:

Line 311: "%AMD9804.1%" = ati2mtag_Wrestler, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9804

 

Catalyst 11.11 Have Support.

CL128242.inf, Line 311: "%AMD9804.1%" = ati2mtag_Wrestler, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9804

 

Catalyst 11.12 Have Support.

CL129965.inf, Line 328: "%AMD9804.1%" = ati2mtag_Wrestler, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9804

 

Catalyst 12.1 Have Support.

CL132104.inf, Line 333: "%AMD9804.1%" = ati2mtag_Wrestler, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9804

 

Catalyst 12.2 Have Support.

CL134393.inf, Line 337: "%AMD9804.1%" = ati2mtag_Wrestler, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9804

 

Catalyst 12.4 Have Support.

CL137813.inf, Line 341: "%AMD9804.1%" = ati2mtag_Wrestler, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9804

 

But the latest Catalyst (At the moment - 12.6) doesn't have any DEV ID. for my Video Card.

I've downloaded the Catalyst 12.6 twice; from http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/Pages/radeon_win7-32.aspx, and using the Web Form from http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDSupportHub.aspx.

Both methods led me to the same Catalyst 12.6 Installer (12-6_vista_win7_32_dd_ccc.exe).

I know that I can tweak the .inf driver file installation to make something like a overclocking; in that way windows will install the driver thinking that my GPU it's another GPU:

Catalyst 12.6 -

CL141402.inf, Line 163: "%AMD68F9.32%" = ati2mtag_EvergreenC, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_68F9&SUBSYS_174B6250

CL141402.inf, Line 3172: AMD68F9.32 = "ATI Radeon HD 6250"

(The name seems to "AMD RADEON HD 6250" or "AMD RADEON HD 6200", but I don't know if it is more or less powerfull that mine)

And ADD the following line to make that windows detect my GPU like a ATI RADEON HD 6250:

"%AMD68F9.32%" = ati2mtag_EvergreenC, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9804

I'm not sure if this could break my Video Card... but I want have the latest driver release - and I can't find any document where AMD/ATI say that Leave the Support for Any / Specific Card!

Since there is no laptop forum to direct you to, all I have to say is read the "read me" for laptop drivers. it goes something like this:

OK... taking away my fears about break my Video Card, I've made the change in the .inf installation driver files.

Well, the installer still doesn't detect my Video Card, so I used the Windows Device Manager to accomplish the driver installation. I got a warning about the driver (about this... I think that It happend because the DEV ID doesn't exist in the .CAT files - Security Catalog - of the driver)

Now I have a couple of days using the PC and everything is working - basicly flawless.

I've played some 3d games, seeying movies, etc... I've connected my LCD TV and use it like a second screen... at the moment everything is working.

I don't recommend do this, but it worked to me. The others Catalyst modules was installed one by one.

I hope that the Video Card doesn't go explode! meanwhile... I will enjoy it!
