ATI radeon HD 3650 not detected

Windows 7 wont detect my graphic card.. I had XP and installed Windows 7 today, but for some reason it wont detect My ATi card. I cant run any games and things that require some sort of graphic. like screensavers. When i check the device manager all it sais is that i have a standad VGA screencard. ( im sorry if my translation of the messages are incorrect, im from sweden and i running the swedish version.)

Im running Windows 7 professional 32bit.

Motherboard: ASRock AM2NF3-VSTA

Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5400+ (2 CPUs), ~2.8GHz

I have followed a few guides but none of them seem to be working for me, do anyone have any idea on how to fix this?

Could be a long shot but the AM2NF3-VSTA board has an agp slot, do you have an agp or pci vidio card? I would make sure you have the lates bios for your board for 7 and chipset drivers for 7. Then check your bios and make sure it is looking to the correct slot / priority.

Well your model should be listed. Take a look through this thread Install AGP Drivers for HD 3850, 3650, 2400 PRO

thefabe, can't be bothered going through all 23 pages of that thread, don't remember seeing any but has anyone had any success with an AGP card on a NF3 based motherboard?

That's what I thought. Got me looking into it a bit more and found this,

nForce3 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
Nvidia announced before the public release of Windows Vista that they would not release chipset drivers for the AGP-based nForce2 for the operating system. They subsequently decided to also drop support for nForce3 in late February 2007, after the release of Vista. Nvidia is thus the only major mainboard chipset manufacturer that is not supporting a chipset designed for 64-bit processors with Vista. The chipset drivers packaged with Windows Vista are usable, but as a result of not being specifically designed for the nForce2 and 3 chipsets, they do not take full advantage of the hardware and lose some functionality. One such problem disables safe removal of IDE and SATA drives.

One issue concerning the lack of natively supported drivers for the nForce3 chipset in Windows Vista has come up with the public release of the operating system and the affordability of dual core systems. In these dual core systems with ATI graphics chipsets above the Radeon 9XXX series, Windows Vista disables the ATI display drivers designed for the operating system and defaults to the PCI-compatible drivers. Windows reports this as Code 43 Error. In PCI-compatible mode, all hardware acceleration is switched off, negatively affecting the performance of the display adapter.
and seeing as the link on the wiki page to the ATI KB article is broken,

737-24498: Windows Vista: Code 43 Error in Device Manager in Systems with ATI AGP Cards and Nforce3 Chipset Motherboards

Another thing from that wiki article is that it only seems to affect those with a dual core cpu's, with single core being unaffected.

Basically comes down to if you have one of these NF3 AGP based motherboards, you're better off sticking with XP until such a time as you get a new computer.

Might one other option be - long shot to find but try a basic pcie vidio card, bios should be able to set primary video.
