  1. Hello everyone,

    I'm updating drivers for my video card... (killing my nerve cells rather )

    I've spent about 20 hours without any breaks , I'm trying to update my video card drivers. Here is what I have;

    I have ATI Radeon X700 Video Card on my desktop PC , recently I've changed my hard drive ( my old one died )

    Now I need to upgrade my video card , BUT I CAN NOT install any of the ATI Catalyst software.

    Here is my steps so far

    My latest attempt was:
    * Uninstall AIT software from add/remove programs
    * Ran driver cleaner and removed all ati related files, and registry entries
    * Reboot
    * System says "found new hardware... <cancel>
    * Install driver .... get the same error "Setup did not find a driver compatible with your blabla...."
    * Reinstalling .Net ( currently have 3.5 latest version )
    *Reinstalling DivX

    Absolutely nothing seem to work for me , except for omega drivers which I can install without any problems. ( But they are no good because with those drivers I can not play my favorite game it glitches graphics badly)

    If anyone could help me please, I seriously want to cry . No matter what I do I can not fix this ...

    Thank you for your help in advance.

    What Catalyst version are you trying to install? Use Catalyst 9.3 or earlier. 9.3 was the last version that supported your card.
