  1. Hi all frist, sorry for my spelling, i'm talking french.

    Ok here is my problem the best i can describe it. My friend gave me a Radeon x1900xtx but he didnt have the drivers CD, so i downloaded it for windows XP (since it is my the windows i use) and i have an error saying that the drivers is not compatible with the windows logo.

    any solution?

    Windows XP allows you to install both signed and unsigned drivers (unsigned drivers are drivers that haven't passed the "compatible with Windows logo" test)

    When you see the message, is Windows actually stopping the drivers from being installed? Or does it give you the option to click Continue to complete the install? Just click Continue to let the driver install complete

    Note: you can set your Driver Signing policy to Warn so you will be prompted and then you can hit Continue

    Rt click My Computer->Properties, click Hardware tab, click Driver Signing button
    > Check Warn
    > Check Make this action system default
    > Click OK and close the windows

    It's common to install unsigned drivers in XP. Click OK if you know the source of the driver (as you do in this case)

    What driver version did you install? For that older card you should have installed Catalyst 9.3 or older.
