First of all, it is officially supported by Windows 7 on both 32 and 64-bit editions. Have you tried re-running the WEI Assessment?

Is ist possible to post an image of that error?
Also is that an AGP card?
Lastly what drivers are you using? These are the "AGP" drivers for the 2600 series card - Catalyst AGP Hotfix - Radeon HD 4000 Radeon HD 3000 and Radeon HD 2000 Series AGP products


Thanks
