"ATI Radeon HD 3850 AGP" = ati2mtag_RV630, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9515
Hit ctrl+s to save it. Close notepad. Open device manager. Right click on the video card. Update driver software. Browse my computer. Let me pick. Have disk. Browse.
Now find the .inf you just edited and saved. If it complains that the driver is unsigned, tell it to install anyway.
After, run setup.exe in extracted folder to get CCC.
I have the same problem but this fix does not seem to work for me.
I have a Dell Dimension 8300 (875P chipset) and I am trying to run a Sapphire HD 3850 AGP with Windows 7 Pro 32bit.
Everything was working fine with XP SP3, but I felt adventurous...
According to the Windows 7 Upgrade advisor of 1 week ago, I was supposed to be able to run Windows Aero. According to the Windows 7 Upgrade advisor of last night, my "current graphics adapter won't support the Windows Aero user interface"! go figure!
Anyway, I had received the DVD and I decided to still install Windows 7...
My Graphics card now shows as "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter".
The HW Ids are:
The report.xml file from Catalyst Install Manager correctly identifies the HW and shows that both itself and Visual C++ got installed successfully. CCC 9.10 on the other end is not visible.
I have edited CL_83742.inf to add the line proposed by Torrentg
I tried later to also modify CW_83742.inf the same way (just in case).
I tried in Normal boot mode, I tried in Safe mode, I tried in "Disable Drive Signature Enforcement" mode, I tried to uninstall the driver first, but every attempt has rewarded me with a "Windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date"!
It does not even complain that the driver is unsigned.
Could someone tell me if there is a HW incompatibility somewhere (similar to the other follows with their nForce3)?
Is there a way to force Windows 7 to load the driver?
I am running out of ideas...
