Warning AGP ati card problems

the people a sapphire told me to try x64 drivers, but i was annoyed to the point of wiping and installing good old XP Pro sp2.
Thanks, I want to get windows 7 back up and running ASAP. Pz Late

Welcome aboard the Se7enforums! The answer to that one is basic! Simply download the latest 9.5 catalyst for 7 from the ATI.AMD support site's download page for Radeon model cards. Drivers & Tools | GAME.AMD.COM

Once there you simply click the ATI Radeon cards link from the list and select Windows 7 64bit from the next page for the latest 9.5 version.

Yeah, I'm running HIS Radeon HD 3850 IceQ 3 Turbo HDMI Dual DL-DVI AGP and it's great. The normal Catalyst drivers will not normally install without editing the .inf, for AGP. Instead, you should download and use the Vista Hotfix driver for use on Windows 7, available in both x86 and x64.

You'll want the hotfix for the 64bit Vista not XP seen there to see if that will get things running for you.

this is a common problem, even in XP and Vista... since these cards use a PCIe-to-AGP bridge chip, and each chip is slightly different depending on the manufacturing, there is no guarantee that it will work....
the only suggestion I have is to try the drivers from the manufacturer of the card itself (using Vista drivers) or try the drivers from VisionTek which has (mostly) worked for me...

I have tried from sapphires site, but the 32 and 64. trying the VisionTek stuff after i reinstall AGAIN! .ALSO when the installation is complete, the computer doesn't ask me to restart. It would usually ask to restart.
