  1. I couldn't directly upgrade to 7 from XP so I'm wondering if I can go XP -> Vista -> 7 if thats possible?
  2. So I have an old retro PC I built recently (Abit AV8, 4GB DDR, AGP HD 4670) and the drivers for the GPU work fine on Windows XP. But on Windows 7 all hell breaks loose. I got it working for a short period of time before it started going haywire. I think its related to the fact that the 4670 has a converter chip to convert to AGP as my native AGP Radeon 9550 XL installs with no issues whatsoever. I also have a HD 3850 with a similar converter chip and it works flawlessly on Windows XP but on Windows 7 it has the same weird behavior. Below are video links so said behavior.
  3. Well that is unfortunate but OCing is actually quite painless and simple.
  4. Spring for the 4k unit. That 10 bit color seems like a great option for that kind of stuff.
  5. He means what hardware are you pairing it with? Like a 3090 or just a pidly 1060?
  6. Honestly a 9700k would make some difference but I'd really say not that much. Overclocking your 1080 and the 9600k would give maybe even a bigger bump than just upgrading to the 9700k (unless your CPU cooler is crap of course)
  7. So the drivers work PERFECTLY on Windows XP. Tomorrow I'll upgrade the machine to Windows XP 64 bit so that I can upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit and hopefully the drivers will still work right.
  8. Ok so I installed the 12.3 AGP hotfix driver and that worked but I am getting the display driver stopped responding and has recovered error with graphical effects not really working properly.
  9. To me it seems like that any GPU that has a converter chip, windows 7 doesn't seem to like for some reason. The 3850 exhibited the same behavior with it's drivers installed but my 9550 xl, a native agp gpu, worked just fine and its drivers installed with no issue AUTOMATICALLY.
  10. Tried it and it doesn't even detect a driver in the windows 8 driver folder.
  11. Ok good news and bad news. The driver did install but after I restarted anything remotely requiring graphics rendering would crash the driver and cause a popup to tell me the AMD graphics driver has restarted. The next time I restarted after that I got the 1fps refresh bug again. Soooooooooo yeah. Perhaps I should try the most recent installer's inf files? Because this was using the 13.9 files.
  12. It appears to be stuck on "currently installing: AMD Catalyst Install Manager" I copied those files into the correct directory which replaced those two files that were already there. I tried this using the 13.9 catalyst installer.
  13. I think that these are the hardware IDs (I clicked on properties and then on details and selected hardware ids) PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9495&SUBSYS_00281002&REV_00 PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9495&SUBSYS_00281002 PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9495CC_030000 PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9495CC_0300
