Driver Installation Errors with Windows 7 for my GPU

I have both an ATi HD 4670 AGP and an ATi HD 3850 AGP and both give me this error: "The driver selected for this device does not support this version of Windows." Trying to run the installer for a number of different versions of the AMD catalyst driver just results in the installer saying it completed successfully but not installing the driver. This is getting extremely infuriating and I need some help with this nonsense.

Are you installing the correct version for your system architecture? That is 64-bit for x64 and 32-bit for x86.

I require no glory, only results.

Yes I am. I am using 64 bit (as I have an Athlon 64 x2 4200+ in this PC)

Download the driver and this tool https://www.wagnardsoft.com/DDU/download/DDU v18.0.3.6.exe

Disable your network card or pull out the Ethernet cable from the computer so that there is no network connection.

Enter Safe Mode and run the DDU tool. It will remove any trace of the present driver.

After the PC restarts, run the driver setup executable and see if it works then.

Restore the network connection.

Alright I'll give that a go. I haven't run DDU yet on the machine.

I might also double check your version of Windows is 64 bit? Unless you know for sure. I have seen PCs from this era where 32 bit Windows is installed on a machine with a 64 bit CPU.

It is 64 bit Windows. I checked in the System tab

I have both an ATi HD 4670 and a 3850 AGP. Both say that their drivers are incompatible even though they are. Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. I have tried to manually install the drivers because the catalyst installer flat out wouldn't install the drivers. I have also already tried DDU. Help would be appreciated.

Are they AGP or PCIe graphics cards?
If AGP, try the Vista drivers. Otherwise, they may not be compatible.

Did you get the windows 7 64bit driver from amd? If you get the windows 8 driver it of course won't work.

 

Could also be the I assume cracked windows as we all know ultimate is used by 99,99% pirates :p.

Both are AGP as that is all my motherboard has. I have tried the Vista drivers as well but these cards both have driver support going up to Windows 8

Are you able to try Vista? 7 apparently had some AGP bugs.
Make sure SP2 is installed.

I could try vista but that would take an eternity to download, install, and not have a product key for. I'd also have to find a flipping DVD-R around here

He's suggesting to use the Vista drivers, not install Windows Vista.

Is there maybe some log file of the driver installation?

I require no glory, only results.

There is and what it tells me is that the installer straight up installs everything EXCEPT for the display driver. Also trying to install the drivers manually results in this error: the driver selected for this device does not support this version of windows

I've already tried that. Just to test I threw in a Radeon 9550 XL and it booted and installed the drivers AUTOMATICALLY. So idk wtf is going on rn.
