    Radeon X1600Pro driver not working in Windows 8

    The following problem has been revealed to me: Windows recognizes the Radeon X1600 Pro. I have chosen Windows 8, because I had old operating system (XP) wanted to move it. So I made my backups (ie photos, music, movies) and reformat the disk. Then I installed Windows 8, everything working fine. But Windows does not recognize my video card, but as "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" I've tried all versions of the Catalyst driver package.

    I either got the message that there are compatibility issues (Catalyst from the driver CD of my PC) or that everything goes perfectly, and nothing "to update". I have found out that my graphics card was recently supported in the Catalyst version 9.3. Unfortunately, this tells me that everything is fine. But that's not it. So guys please help me out.

    Your card was not already in Windows 7 since you can load at AMD / ATI Catalyst whatever you want, this will be nothing!

    I can understand you, but "old" hardware is now supported not more times. Especially your video card has been developed yet for ATI times. After the AMD ATI has been bought (in 2006), was a short time available ATI driver support, but when AMD introduced its own chipsets for Grakas on the market, the theme was done!

    3 Select video card and right click > update drivers
    4 Click "Search in the computer..." and select C:\ATI
    5 Next, next, next...
