Hi,
Thank you everyone for helping me to resolved the problem. Hv tried running the upgrade adviser and found the sound card is not compatible with Windows 7 ,graphic card not window aero support. Tried zigzag 3143's method to install my graphic card and it works and the display adapter is Radeon 9200. Can I install also the latest ATI catalyst 10.7 for my graphic display control? But the sound was not working using this method. Any other method for this card .I think hv to buy a Windows 7 sound card.
Thks everybody.

Jon, I'm pretty sure he said the sound card still isn't working, but he got his video card driver installed.

The best thing for old hardware lacking driver support is to buy new hardware. A decent sound card isn't very expensive at all.

No you will not be able to install the 10.7 on your 9200. That card is just too old and as such all support for it was dropped, with the last driver for it being for XP from 2006,

http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...fessional/Home

which will work for that card in Windows 7 if installed using compatibility mode.

As for your sound card, again it is too old (originally came out over 10 years ago) with the last driver for it being from 2003 for XP. You can try the XP driver but not sure how well it will work, or you can try the one in the link that alphanumeric posted under #4.

You can also try the Kx driver,

Official kX Project Site -- News

which has been updated to work with Windows 7 and does support that card.

Hi Stormy,
Tried earlier on Kx software on the sound --it can install but no sound output when play media. As for the graphic --it can be installed but the picture flashes when u use the mouse rollin up/down the pages. also it causes a blue screen when shutting down occur. Anyway thanks everyone for the effort.
Thks rick
