ATI All-In-Wonder 9000 Pro: driver update error

by grimalkin / June 27, 2009 10:30 AM PDT

I am trying to install the updated driver kindly supplied by CNET. Everything went well until I tried the final file, the driver update itself. I then tried to uninstall then reinstall from the resource disks that came with my Dell Dimension 8300. I've had trouble reinstalling ATI before, so this was a last resort. The driver still won't update. The error message is:

"error installing iKernal.exec (0x10000)"

I know there is a way to overcome this, because I've done it in the past. I feel so brain dead now (we just moved, etc.), I really need some help.

I'm running XP Home SP 3. The ATI All-In-Wonder 9000 Pro came installed with my Dell in 2003. I have a Radeon 9800 graphics card, but that's about the extent of my comprehension. Any suggestions?

All help appreciated. Thanks!

Is this an AGP card?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / June 27, 2009 10:40 AM PDT

If so I've had to use ATI's HOTFIX drivers since they no longer "support" AGP. Here's links about it -> http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=ATI+AGP+hotfix

Be aware I might use some ATI driver cleaner first. Also if you have "protection" software installed, driver installs can fail.

AGP? I dunno.

I haven't a clue what kind of card it is. This is what Belarc Advisor says:

All-In-Wonder RADEON 9000 Pro [Display adapter]
All-In-Wonder RADEON 9000 Pro Secondary [Display adapter]
DELL M992 [Monitor] (17.2"vis, s/n 4N73635RB8HV, May 2003)
Bus Adapters Multimedia
Creative Audigy Audio Processor (WDM)
SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio

I will try installing with the virus, spyware and firewall protection disabled. That might work.

Thanks!

When you begin working on your car, you get to learn what is what.

I can almost bet it is AGP.

You are probably right. How do I determine? Also, what is a driver cleaner and can I find one for free here at CNET?

I still haven't attempted to work on this driver project, but I'll let you know, when and if I'm successful.

ATI is in the trash

Had no luck, but thanks for the link to the driver cleaner thingy. I've uninstalled ATI All-In-Wonder from my system. Who needs TV anyway?
