Windows 7 x86 + Sapphire HD 3850 = problem

Hi!

I have a Sapphire Radeon HD3850 AGP card in my system but when i try to install the latest (or not latest) drivers (Catalyst 9.9 HOTFIX for HD2k/HD3k/HD4k AGP cards and Vista 32-bit for Windows Vista 32-bit Edition) i think it only install the defaults to standard VGA, and if I try to run the CCC in the explore it doesn't open.

If anyonne could help me i would be very appreciated!


Regards,
Fokogrilo

Thanks for the replays.

I have done what you told me (torrentg) but after I restart the PC

("If it complains the driver is not signed, let it install anyway. Reboot and ....")

and when the win7 is loading the PC crashes and some times happens some kind o BSOD

Can you give me a hand?

Yeah, sure. Tell ya what. Since you're the 2nd person saying this, even though I'm quite certain the method works well as it has helped many people including myself, I'll setup the driver package myself and test it.

Then I'll upload it for ya. It'll take a little while though. I only have about 50 KB/sec up.

No, no. Heh dozens of people have installed well and thanked me for it. Only two have had such a problem and another is on x64, although I got it working for someone else on x64 too. In these cases, it could be due to the CPU-AGP bridge driver or chipset itself. aka code 43.

Upload says 10 minutes left. I have the post with instructions waiting for it.

Here is the tested (I'm running it now on my HD 3850 AGP and have been for 2 days) Full Catalyst Suite 9.10 for Windows 7/Vista x86, 32-bit, for all cards normally supported, including HD 3850 AGP also.

Extract the contents to C:\ATI using Winrar.

Right click your card in device manager ("standard vga" under display adapters), choose update driver software. Browse. Let me pick. Have disk. Browse. Go to
C:\ATI\Support\9-10_vista32_win7_32_dd_ccc_wdm_enu\Driver\Packages\Drivers\Display\W7_INF
and choose CL_83742.inf.

If it complains the driver is not signed, let it install anyway. Reboot and then choose an Aero theme by rt clicking desktop, choose personalize.

Run setup.exe in C:\ATI\Support\9-10_vista32_win7_32_dd_ccc_wdm_enu\Driver
if you want CCC too.
