No drivers for ATI x800?

Ive previously installed windows 7 when it was first released to the public. But it didn't work with my card. SO i continued to use windows vista. Now i was wondering if this latest version of windows 7 would support x800 series.

I already posted my complaint about the old build HERE , now i just want to check if there are any updates.

What im asking is when i go to Graphics Drivers & Software

Windows 7 does not support x800 still. Does this mean it wont work with this card?
Ive tried the betas of 7 (first beta) but not the newest RC build. Before downloading this build i was wondering if it would work with my card, because before it did not .

All this means is that there is no 7 driver for your card, Did you try to install the Vista driver that works with your card In Windows 7?

Can I just confirm (as I messed about trying to get my card to work all yesterday - and ended up reverting back to XP haha.)

If I grab the vista 9.1 catalyst driver, it will work in Windows 7 RC1 with my X800XT? or is the x800 that much different to the X800XT it wont work?

Also, will I have dual monitors / be able to extend onto my TV?

Any info appreciated :)

It should do, though I can't promise anything. It seems to be the only reliable driver for 'old' ati cards, and looking at the inf the x800 is listed.
Code:
"RADEON X800 PRO/GTO" = ati2mtag_R420, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4A49
"RADEON X800 PRO/GTO Secondary" = ati2mtag_R420, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4A69
"RADEON X800 Series" = ati2mtag_R420, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4A4B
"RADEON X800 Series " = ati2mtag_R420, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4A50
"RADEON X800 Series  " = ati2mtag_R423, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_5549
"RADEON X800 Series   " = ati2mtag_R420, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4A4A
"RADEON X800 Series    " = ati2mtag_R430, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_554F
"RADEON X800 Series     " = ati2mtag_R430, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_554D
"RADEON X800 Series      " = ati2mtag_R430, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_554E
"RADEON X800 Series - Secondary" = ati2mtag_R430, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_556D
"RADEON X800 Series -Secondary" = ati2mtag_R430, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_556F
"RADEON X800 Series Secondary" = ati2mtag_R420, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4A6B
"RADEON X800 Series Secondary " = ati2mtag_R420, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4A70
"RADEON X800 Series Secondary  " = ati2mtag_R423, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_5569
"RADEON X800 Series Secondary   " = ati2mtag_R420, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4A6A
"RADEON X800 Series Secondary    " = ati2mtag_R430, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_556E
"RADEON X800 XT" = ati2mtag_R423, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_5D57
"RADEON X800 XT Platinum Edition" = ati2mtag_R423, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_554A
"RADEON X800 XT Platinum Edition Secondary" = ati2mtag_R423, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_556A
"RADEON X800 XT Secondary" = ati2mtag_R423, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_5D77
"RADEON X800/X850 Series" = ati2mtag_R480, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_5D4F
"RADEON X800/X850 Series - Secondary" = ati2mtag_R480, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_5D6F
"RADEON X800GT " = ati2mtag_R423, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_554B
"RADEON X800GT Secondary " = ati2mtag_R423, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_556B
Some people have had success upgrading from 9.1 to 9.2, but it didn't work for my x1950pro.

On vista my areo works fine and my resolution (1920 by 1080) gets detected. But on windows 7 areo wont work and the resolution wont reach to 1920 by 1080. Even in the display settings. I updated the drivers and it detects the card. Is there any drivers for the X800 Ati Radeon?
