re-installation win7 problems [solved] RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody,

    I used to try 7, it's really cool but, since i re-installed it, i have some problems.

    The first time i installed it, my gfx has been known, (ATI radeon mobility X700) but the second time, it didn't recognize it. I tried to install drivers for 7 but it doesn't work, does microsoft stopped the update about this card ? It was great to not have t install and let windows doing it...
    Thanx a lot

  • Hi,

    You might go to the AMD website here:

    ATI radeon mobility X700

    http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx

    and download the driver for your OS (Vista x32 or x64) and install it as administrator in compatibility mode for Vista.

    Unfortunately they did the same way for others graphic cards but we have to wait for the Finale Version of Win 7.

    I hope this helps.

  • Hi !
    And thanx for ur answer, i tried to install drivers for vista but it doesn't work in compability mode for vista as admin.
    I wanted to try the new release on may 5th, but if it is the same mess, i'll wait for the final version.
    I don't know why Microsoft stopped the automatic download for graphic cards but it's really not cool from them !

  • Hi pelerin86,

    don't fear, the RC will most probably have built-in drivers for your video card.
    give it a shot on may 5TH, and give us a little feedback on it :)

    best regards,

    PierrE.

  • Hi pelerin86,

    Glad to know everything went well :)

    I am very pleased with this RC and I am still to encounter the first real issue in using Seven...everything just works on my 3 PCs and everything is running smoothly both in workgroup or in domain joined pcs under SBS2008...

    Best regards,

    PierrE.
