Windows 7: Windows not booting due to bad display driver

09 Apr 2014   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit

Thanks for your help Mellon Head. I actually managed to install the driver by manually selecting it from the device manager's update driver option. It took several tries, since just selecting the folder wouldn't work (Windows wouldn't find a more appropriate driver than the already installed "Standard VGA Graphics") and I ended up pointing to the "inf" driver file for Windows Vista.

Bottom line, the system now recognizes the card and I've successfully run a couple of programs that with the Standard VGA Graphics either didn't work or ran poorly. I also executed the Unigine video benchmark tool with rather poor results (10FPS on low graphics), but since it's a pretty demanding benchmark I'm not too upset. I suppose I could possibly get a better performance from the ATI, but at least it seems to be working!

Once again, thanks for everything!

Hey, this message is for reckonn. When you finally managed to install "the driver" by using manual install, locating a certain folder, and using the "vista" version, what exact driver were you talking about, what folder name, and where did you get it? I have the exact same problem you were having and it's extremely annoying, so any help would be awesome.
