Drive for secondary graphic card

Is there a Windows 7 compatible driver for the ATI Sapphire Radeon 7000 graphic card?

I have used this as a secondary graphic card in order top have 4 monitors in Windows XP, but after upgrading I cannot seem to find any drivers that allow me to utilize all 4 monitors.

Any input will be greatly appreciatied!

ATI's Driver Development for the Radeon 7000 stoped in Nov 2006 with Cat6.11. Microsoft did make a compatible XDDM driver for VISTA but not for Windows 7.

try Frostmourne suggestion. Someone has modified Cat9.7 to include extra Device ID's.

Better question than trying to find drivers for a completely unsupported card is, what is the other video card?

I am using a NVIDIA Geforce 9400 GT as my primary graphic card.

Did you happen to scroll down at all on that site Frostmourne linked too? Right under the 64 bit driver is the 32 bit version.

If that one doesn't work you could try and get the last driver for XP for that card,

Catalyst? 6.11 Display Driver for Windows XP Professional/Home Edition

to install; probably have to use compatibility mode for it to even run the installer.

If all else fails you basically have 2 options if you want 4 monitors,

1. Stay with XP

2. Look into a newer card that does have Windows 7 support
