Windows 7: Radeon Question (No display adapter)

Radeon Question (No display adapter)

Hello, I would really appreciate some help!
I successfully installed the driver on my old machine for a Radeon 9200 by installing in XP Mode.

However, on my new machine which has a X1900XT, there isn't even a "Display Adapter" listed under device manager. I have tried installing the drivers from ATI's website for Vista and XP under those modes but it doesn't work.

I think I could manually install a driver if it would let me see a "Display Adapter" under device manager. Any idea on why it wouldn't show at least a generic display adapter there?

My motherboard is an Asus A8R32-MVP Deluxe, maybe I need a driver to enable the PCI Express port???

I'm clueless.

Wow, this is a new one to me.

Can you please post 2 screenshots of device manager showing the display adapter section after double clicking it, even if empty. And the other, of all your system devices.

Thanks for the quick reply. I will post the screenshots this evening. (I am at work at the moment.)

The funny thing is that it doesn't even have a Display Adapter section under device manager lol.

In device manager, you could try going to view at top and choosing "show hidden devices."

Perhaps something will show up. Cool. We'll have a look then.

Thanks again for the reply.

Here is a screenshot of my device manager:

As you can see there is no Display Adapter category even shown. I did enable Show Hidden Devices and it still shows the same thing.

Still not having any luck. The Catalyst installations finish and everything and it reboots but nothing ever shows up under Dispaly Manager.

I've never seen this before. Can you post a screenshot of sound, video and game controllers section?

Hit action, scan for hardware changes and see if that makes anything pop up in display adapters.

You don't have video disabled in bios, do you?

Nah, can't be that if he sees video on his screen and is using computer, but good thought. I thought about it myself.

Thanks for the replies everyone.

No, I don't have anything disabled in BIOS. I haven't changed anything since I had XP on the machine and everything worked then. I will send some screenshots of everything else this evening. Thanks again.
