Windows 7: Looking for a few drivers

Looking for a few drivers

Looking for the W7 drivers for an ATI Radeon Xpress 200 series video card and an Ensoniq ES1371 and 1373 multimedia sound card. This sound card is a Sound Blaster original but made by Ensoniq. Thanks.

About the best you're going to get for the video is this one,

ATI Catalystâ„¢ Legacy Display Driver

and no there won't be any Windows 7 drivers for it. ATI has relegated all non-DX10 cards to legacy status, and won't be providing any Windows 7 drivers for them.

For the sound card I can pretty much guarantee that you are SOL. That card is from the Windows 95/98 era and hasn't seen any driver support in years, and won't be changing any time soon. About the best you can hope for is that Windows detects the card and installs some basic driver for it.

I can always remove the Sound Blaster card. Will this legacy video driver work with Windows 7 though? Thanks.

Some users are reporting success with the legacy driver. Some are complaining about low performance. But, for those complaining, at least they have video.
