Windows 7: Windows 10 ATI Radeon HD 4250 graphics?

Windows 10 ATI Radeon HD 4250 graphics?

Hey,

I recently just installed Windows 10 on my main PC (Acer Aspire X3450) and have found that my graphics card driver (one from AMD) isn't installed. There is only what appears to be a default driver there, not AMD Catalyst Control Center, which is what I need.

It's a desktop PC and the driver I had previously on Windows 7 was a legacy 13.9 driver for my card - this does not install correctly on Windows 10.

Am I doomed, or is there a way around this issue?

Edit: If I right-click on my desktop, I can see "Catalyst Control Center" appear; however, if clicked, it will just say it cannot be started as there are no settings that can be configured by the control center.

The problem is that AMD may not support that card for Win 10 because it's an older model. manufacturers frequently do not support hardware older than a year or two. An example is lack of new driver support for your 4250. You have to use legacy drivers.

You may have to upgrade the card to use Windows 10 effectively.

You can always just install the "latest" legacy drivers for your card and see what happens, that would bring back some functionalities you lost in the upgrade. Some people is doing so.

Yea did that but noticed performance was worse than in Windows 7. So I just reverted back to Windows 7. It's a shame, but oh well.

Well, it's not a big loss if you ask me, in fact, you win more reverting to Windows 7...
At least, right now...
