Directions only for Simono -

Before you install the driver, go to device manager.

Under system devices, should be something that says CPU to AGP controller, possibly preceded by your chipset manufacturer's name. For instance, mine is "Via CPU to AGP controller."

Right click on that and choose update driver software. Then browse my computer. Then let me pick. Choose PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge. Then next and let it install.

Now install the video card driver as before, using my .inf.

If it works, wonderful. If not, revert the CPU to AGP bridge back to the default that it was. Good luck.

Also before doing that Simono, make sure you only have one monitor plugged in as you boot. Perhaps it is temporarily messing up, placing your desktop on another monitor or something. Also, go into bios and completely disable the onboard video.

I enjoy helping when I can. Makes me feel like I did something for the day. Nope. Not MCSE. Never took a course or anything. Just self taught since the early 80s since the Texas Instruments and Commodore days. If anyone has an I.T. position open for me in NY, I'm listening. lol

Hi torrentg
I tried the above instructions and the driver that it loaded said AMD 760G. Windows would not boot and I had to use "last known"

If I download the AMD catalyst I am concerned that there may be an issue because it says windows 7 but my card is an HD3650 AGP. Amd does not support any AGP cards. When I go to Visiontek their catalyst only lists Vista even though their notes state that it supports seven.
I tried to install the AMD catalyst and it said it installed correctly but it did not.
Should I try your above mentioned technique with the AMD catalyst and see what happens? Should I use the same driver you put on Rapidshare? My Hardware ID is 9596

Hey dnr53. Yeah, AMD supports their AGP cards. Normally, you would download the hotfix driver listed. I found since a few months now though that the hotfix version is no longer necessary. I installed the last 3 or 4 Catalyst drivers as non-hotfix, regular versions, only adding my card to the .inf. Everything has been working great for a while here.

I have seen the latest AGP hotfix drivers and obviously the latest regular ones too. Neither include the 3650 AGP so that's why you need to use an edited inf.

You have two choices. Either use the Vista driver that Visiontek is providing. Or you can try to get the Windows 7 9.9 Catalyst working.

I don't know why it said AMD 760G. Are you sure your hardware id is correct? Anyhow, place this new .inf inside the 9.9 extracted folder, over the old one. The only id in the whole inf is for your card if it's 9596.

Here ya go:

For anyone else following this thread and with this card, all you need to do is add the following line under [ATI.Mfg.NTx86.6.0] section in the .inf, for any Catalyst version you download.

"ATI Radeon HD 3650 AGP" = ati2mtag_RV630, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9596

Upon further thought dnr53, I believe I realized what happened. The AMD 760G is onboard video, on the motherboard. I suspect that you are choosing that in the device manager to update instead of the AGP card.

Either way, I'd disable the onboard video in the motherbpard bios, then proceed.

Hi torrntg
I believe we have it working! I had the black screen but I changed the high contrast black to windows 7 and I have a regular screen. I can get the resolution up to 1280x1024 and aero is working.
Thank you very much more going over and above. I belong to many windows 7 blogs, websites and technet and I am very excited to have found sevenforums. Will recommend this site to anyone.
Thank you again,
Doug
