Windows 7: ATI Radeon 7000


29 Jun 2010   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
 
 
ATI Radeon 7000

Hi All,
realize someone asked this before but they resolved it by finding the original CD. I don't have the CD w/ drivers and ATI doesn't offer any drivers for windows 7 64 bit. I tried installing in compatibility mode but it failed. Any generic drivers I can use a workaround I'm not seeing? Best

(The generic VGA driver doesn't allow dual screens and the resolution doesn't fit the screen right at all). Thanks for any help

Hi benjamingrantdu , welcome to the forums, if its the radeon mobility card you have ,then im afraid you are very much out of luck Windows 7 reqs directx 9 and above , your card does not support that you may be lucky and find an archived catylist driver but if you do find one do not expect it to work very well , aero is definitely a no no

From AMD Site:
Quote:
Note: AMD’s DirectX 9 ATI Radeon graphics accelerators are not officially supported under Windows 7. If the user chooses to, they can install the ATI Catalyst Windows Vista graphics driver under Windows 7. Please be aware that none of the new Windows 7 graphics driver (WDDM 1.1) features are supported (as the Windows Vista level graphics driver is limited to WDDM 1.0 level support).

You can try these legacy drivers:

merkat106, sorry to say but the legacy driver won't work with the 7000 as there is no support for it or any other card from the 9200/9250 series and down. The last driver to support any of those cards is the catalyst 6.11 from November 2006,

Catalystâ„¢ 6.11 Drivers and ATI Multimedia Software for Windows XP Professional/Home Edition

which from what I have seen have been hit or miss as to whether they will install in 7.
