Correct driver for ati 9550 agp card?

having searched the net and found a million different answers and sites offering all sorts of downloads i am lost.

what is the correct driver version for a ati 9550 pro to run aero under win7?
asus k8v-mx board, 2 gigs of ram...

also when i run WMC video it says i don't have the correct hardware...i guess thats because the drivers are incorrect/nonexistant??

the amd support site says to use 10.2, but other post i have read say to use no higher than 9.3....anyone have a WORKING solution ?

I seriously doubt you'll get aero on that card. AMD dropped current Windows driver support for that card a long time ago. All you will be able to find is Vista-era drivers, and the driver file will need to have the term "legacy" in it to work. You'll have to install the drivers in Vista compatibility mode.

Windows 10 Education 64 bit

The ones I have saved to a thumb drive are 10-2_legacy_vista32-64_wdm, driver only and 10-2_legacy_vista32-64_dd_ccc for the full package. I downloaded them direct from ATI/AMD > ATI Catalyst

I haven't tried them yet, my card is a 9550 AGP with 256 megs of RAM. I'm waiting for the final release of SP1 before I try 7 on my backup rig with those drivers. I have a trial of enterprise to play with and want to try 7 on the old rig just for fun. Let me know if you get yours working.
