I'm using Windows 7 Professional 64bit with an ASUS P8H67-M PRO motherboard. I'm trying to install an ASUS HD5450 video card. I've tried both the drivers
on the CD that came with the card and the latest version from ASUS's website.
When I use the CD, the error is "Driver
Install: the installation failed." When I install the drivers via Device Manager, the error is "The operation returned because the timeout period expired." It takes about 15 minutes to attempt to install, during which time nothing is happening (according to Task Manager). The card does function with the "Video Controller (VGA Compatible)" drivers, but obviously not very well.
[REDACTED. See below.]
My "Windows Experience Index" is now 3.9 instead of 6.5 with my onboard video. (I upgraded because the new card supports higher resolution.) I don't see any visual difference, perhaps because this computer is never used for gaming. Is this a problem?
