Windows 7: Problems Installing Video Driver

Problems Installing Video Driver

I'm having a problem installing my video driver for my HP DV8000 laptop. It has an ATI Radeon Xpress 200M Video Card that installs fine with XP but when I installed 7 on my Secondary HD it says it can not install due to conflicts with the hardware or software setup on my computer.

Anybody have any ideas?

This is the Fault Windows tells me:

The current video card may support Aero with a driver that is compliant with the Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM). Contact the manufacturer of your computer or video card for a WDDM-compatible driver.

If there are no Windows 7 drivers, you can try installing Vista drivers for it. You might have to install them in compatibility mode.

Hello TwoShoes, welcome to SF
there doesn't appear to be any Windows 7 drivers yet.
See here for a possible alternative.
Hope this helps.

I tried installing Catalyst 9.8 for Vista 64 and it still doesn't support Aero but then again I'm not 100% sure about what I'm doing. I've put keeping up with technology on the back burner for the last few years and I've lost a lot of the tips and tricks I used to know.

Any other ideas?

See here. It may help.

Also, maybe try installing a slightly older version, here.

I've tried installing all of those different versions and 7 continues to go back to the standard driver thinking it is the newest version even if I uninstall the driver.

Well I feel a bit on the dumb side now... I started wondering about windows updater and I finally found it after taking the dumb down control panel settings off and there was an update automatically set so I'm good now... oh BTW... Windows 7 Rocks now!
