Display and Monitor Drivers PROBLEM!!

I have a ATI Radeon 7500 and i can't let windows 7 Build 7600 find it. It says under display monitor its a Standard VGA graphics adapter. I'm getting really annoyed because i can't play counter-strike...and i installed many different drivers for it but it just doesn't work. and i also wanted the Control Center but idk how as well. I upgraded today to windows 7 from XP...and dumb me didnt backup ANYTHING after a full clean wipe. So im getting really agitated and not patient about it. please help!!

and as well with my monitor display says Generic pnp Monitor and i can't find the drivers for my monitor anywhere! even on the gateway site. I have a 19" Gateway LE HD widescreen. please help me!

I'm assuming that's an AGP card? I'll set you up with how to install the latest 9.10 beta. I'm almost sure I can get your card to work with this under 7. All you need to do is go to device manager, right click card and choose properties, go to details tab, change the property drop down to say hardware ids. There should be shown a few lines.

What is the exact 4 digit number next to dev_ in any of them? I'll make you an .inf. In the meantime, download this driver and run it to extract to c:\ati. When the installer is done extracting, then close it...which is before it start actually installing. Then I'll have further instructions later.

ATI Catalyst 9.10 Beta Windows 7 | Vista (32|64) download from Guru3D.com

Alright then, but are you sure? Because I looked up info about your motherboard and it says it has an AGP slot. It would be rare for a pc with AGP to be using a PCI card.

I believe one of the older catalyst drivers may work for you then, if PCI. Like maybe the 7 series or 6. Check guru3d.com, under downloads to find all versions.

I will make you an .inf for the newest beta if the older catalysts will not install, but have no idea if it will work for PCI.

Report here how it went. If no good, we'll work on it.

This is if you want to try the 9.10 beta I linked to from Guru. Run the .exe and tell it to extract to C:\ATI.

Inside that will be a path

ATI\Packages\Drivers\Display\W7_INF

Replace the .inf there with this one, directly overwriting it.

Now go to the device manager, right click your card, choose update driver software, browse my computer, let me pick from a list, have disk, browse. Find the .inf that you overwrote with mine. Hit open. Let it install.

Now run C:\ATI\setup.exe to install the Catalyst Control Center and other related video driver apps.

If it worked, use winrar to compress C:\ATI to a file to save for future installs.

What you have is an ALL-IN-WONDER RADEON 7500 AGP.

Can you post a screenshot of the device manager now, showing the card?
It seems to me the driver installed correctly and you're set as far as the driver is concerned. You could now do a Windows Update to see if it will install a driver for your monitor, but it's not completely necessary.

Try rebooting the machine and then run C:\ATI\setup.exe again to get CCC up and running.
