Windows 7: ATI X1550 OpenGL Problem

I've got an X1600 and AMD/AMD dropped support for that (and your card) starting with Catalyst 9.4.

I'm surprised your driver installation worked ... but then, I'm reminded back of days in Vista when the ATI driver would NOT install, even though it was supposed to work.

So maybe now, the opposite happens -- in installs flawlessly when it shouldn't. (You can tell I'm NOT a fan of AMD/ATI)

I mean the setup finished successfully, but my VGA driver is still Microsoft WDDM Radeon X1300/X1550 Driver and has problems !

But the setup finished without any errors

I tried installing "ATI Catalyst 9.6 Vista | 7 32-bit" and "ATI Catalyst 9.5 Windows 7 | Vista WHQL 32-bit" from Device manager. But my VGA model is not in the list !

Radeon X1550 is one of the legacy drivers and there is no more support for them. I have a simmilar problem with X1300. ATI Catalyst 9.3 Vista or earlier will give you working drivers. ATI Catalystâ„¢ Legacy Display Driver
After you download and Extract the file navigate to C:\ATI\Support\9-3_1_legacy_vista32-64_wdm (or some other folder that has been extracted) run Setup.exe in compatibility mode for Windows Vista SP2.
Hope this solves your problem!

I tried installing Version 9.3.1 .But it installed with this error:

Driver Install: the driver package does not specify a hardware identifier

I tried installing from Device Manager, But X1550 is not in the list of found drovers.I know 9.3.1 supports X1550.Does Windows 7 cannot see it?
