Satellite S1900-303: ATI Mobility Radeon M6 Hangging Up
Posted: 30-Sep-2010 19:41
 
The display sometimes freezes on my Satellite S1900-303. The laptop is still using the original ATI Mobility Radeon M6 graphics card, with driver version 6.13.10.6052 dated 22/03/2002.

Can anyone advise whether this is the latest driver available for the ATI Mobility Radeon M6 graphics card ? I have tried both the ATI ( now AMD ) & Toshiba websites without any luck.

Can the exiting ATI Mobility Radeon M6 graphics card be replaced with a more up to date card that will not crash ?

I am running XP SP3 / 1 MB RAM / 320 GB HDD.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Huh I had this notebook model in year 2003 and it was pretty good notebook.
At this time I used original recovery image with latest Microsoft updates.

Now you have SP3 and probably lot of newer software preinstalled on it. Who knows why this happen?
When you say “display freezes sometimes” what does it mean exactly? Does it happen by certain operation or what?

It is not easy to offer some support for this old piece of hardware.
Newer driver? I don’t think you will find it.
Graphic card upgrade? Forget it. Notebook is not designed for such upgrades.
