Torrent can you work your magic for me too please. I installed windows 7 64 bit ultimate , somehow it compressed my Xp. Old video card would not run so i purchased HIS 4650 agp 1gb card.
Drivers seem to load but keeps standard vga as others have posted.
Following your post i have identified the same hardware id as crazy ( would have tried it but was downloaded 10 times already) 9495
I have windows 7 64 bit installed
I would really appreciate your help as i now have no operating system running.
Anything you could do would be most appreciated
using the 9-10vista64_win7_64_dd.exe

It says that it is not for my version of windows for some reason
I have also tried the 64 bit drivers from the manufacturers page with the same results

For some of you people who are having problems installing ATI drivers if you have an AGP card you might want to look here - Catalyst AGP Hotfix - Radeon HD 4000 Radeon HD 3000 and Radeon HD 2000 Series AGP products. This page will be updated as new AGP hot fix drives are updated. Also, even though it says Vista it will probably work for Windows 7, but...

Some other links...

That uses the Vista WDDM 1.0 driver.

My method here uses the latest Windows 7 WDDM 1.1 driver.

Download the latest normal desktop driver for Win7 64 bit from ATI's site. Extract it to C:\ATI

Open the .inf with C7 or CL in there someplace, with notepad. Add this line by copying and pasting into it where all the other similar lines are:

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

Save it. Then install using the information in the link in my post right above, starting at step 6. The folders shown will be somewhat different because of x64, but you should probably be able to figure things out. Good luck.

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


Just checking
My board is the HD4650 AGP version with ID 9495

So should my line read :
"ATI Radeon HD 4650 AGP" = ati2mtag_RV630, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9495 ?

Alright, then use this line instead:

"ATI Radeon HD 4650 AGP" = ati2mtag_R7X, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9495

Thanks for your time and effort torrent
tried as you detailed and system installed driver and then on restart went into system repair/restore.
I'm guessing it might be that my motherboard is just too old or i might need to get 32 bit version

You're welcome.

Yes, it is too old. It uses the nForce3 chipset which will be impossible to use on Vista or 7 with AGP hardware acceleration.

(I am betting that someone very talented that could reverse engineer the XP AGP port driver could actually get this to work. It's outside of my realm, however.)

Wasn't trying to take business away from you, just another workable solution.
