Hey akon and welcome to seven forums

You do need a different driver in win 7 than in XP. Im not sure if you are 32bit or 64, so I just got you the link to both they can be found here Graphics Drivers & Software hope this helps

The 3850 AGP needs to have the .inf edited to install. You have to install manually using the device manager if you want to use Catalyst for Win 7 drivers. (Just download the driver from from ATI for any high end card then, and edit as I said.) See my post here:

You can use the Vista hotfix driver if you want to install without hassle as ZigZag3143 has shown.

so the new driver and the hot fix didnt work. go into device manager by typing device manager in search. go to the display tab and tell us if your video card is listed, and if it has a yellow triangle on it?
