Windows 7: Install AGP Drivers for HD 3850, 3650, 2400 PRO

I guess it's ok now. I was able to install the legacy driver without any mod this time.
It reads: driver date: 9/29/2009
version: 8.593.100.0
I'm assuming this is the best driver I can use. Thanks for your help torrentg.

No hassle Hotfix 9.11 available from ATI

I remember when I first tried Windows 7 RC on my AGP PC with a Radeon HD 2600 card, and I had to manually modify the INF files and install as per the instructions in the first post. When I recently installed the final version of Windows 7, I expected to have to go through the same procedure, but found that ATI made available a Hotfix version of Catalyst 9.11 that installs without any trouble, CCC included, if desired.

Just choose one of the "Radeon HD x000 Series AGP" choices from the driver selection page, and you will be taken directly to the Hotfix download page page.

Maybe I am missing something from the regular Catalyst driver release that the first post so well describes how to install..?

I have a Radeon 3450 and this procedure doesn't work for me. I still get a very frustrating mode not supported error on my TV. I had no issues at all on Vista.

First of all thank you very much for all yur driver solutions for people with ATI AGP video cards (mine´s 3850 agp).
But about 10 days ago ati published in the agp hotfix drivers section the Cat 9.11 Windows 7 WDDM 1.1 drivers for agp hd cards. I though too that it was the WDDM 1.0 vista driver but when yu install the driver the folder is "C:\ATI\Support\9-11_agp-hotfix_vista_win7_32_dd_ccc\Packages\Drivers\Display\W7_INF". When it was the vista driver the folder it wasn´t W7_Inf, so i think now this is the same driver that the pci-e cards, the WDDM 1.1 driver.
Anyway, Is there any tool to know if yu have a WDDM 1.0 or 1.1 driver installed??
One more time, thanks Torrentg

Quick Question before proceeding

I have been having issues trying to get my HD 4650 to jive with my system. If it is not too much trouble, could you please have a peek at the following specs and let me know if this will even work?

AMD 64 2800+
MSI K8T NEO FIS2R (6702)
1 GB Ram
Windows 7 (dual boot with Vista)
SB X-Fi Xtreme Audio

I am upgrading from a GeForce 6600 with a dying fan and would love to make this work.

Thank You,
Sean

I have had no problems with the card being recognized. However, once I install all the drivers (tried several drivers, hot fixes, etc.) I get the same result after reboot. The display either goes black, checkerboard, or just plain freezes. I have not tried torrentg's solution yet. Hopefully that will make a difference, but I will say that the difference in install between NVidia and ATI is frustrating.

Ya, should be fine using his method, as I said. It's very easy to do once you're used to it.

If not, update your chipset drivers and/or bios then reinstall the video driver.

Just noticed his process is for 32 bit... I have 64 bit Win 7 installed.

Hmmm....
