Ok So here pictured is the 4670. I installed the 3850 into the computer and it looks like the drivers are installing properly [fingers crossed] this time.

3850 drivers installed and the screen refreshes at .5 fps. No joke. Idk what is even going on anymore.

In fact the system falls on its face with the 3850 drivers installed. It can't render anything and just gives up

I can not seem to find the VBIOS version that your card does have.

Also the Shader Units aswell as Pixel and Texture fillrates seem to be far off from what the default values are.

Reference: https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/radeon-hd-4670.c234

 

If you feel comfortable with flashing VBIOS, you can try doing that although I do not know if 'backwards flashing' is a thing as your VBIOS appears to have a higher number than the ones listed below.

I require no glory, only results.

Well here's the thing. The card was working fine on my Pentium 4 AGP system (which now no longer has a CPU unfortunately) so I suppose I could try to flash a new VBIOS on it but this card was a very rare and unusual card. http://www.hisdigital.com/us/product2-448.shtml That is the card I'm trying to use. I have pretty much given up now so I'm going to reinstall Windows now.

Edit: Oh I see. 320 shaders vs 80. Actually wtf

This may not be related but I am gonna suggest that you do a system scan with the following command just as a last resort.

sfc /scannow

If you do not mind me asking, did you buy this card new or used?

I bought both used. The 4670 I confirmed working on my Pentium 4 AGP machine as I was able to boot into and launch Minecraft. The 3850 I didn't get a chance to test though so that is a mystery card.

I asked becuase it seems like the previous user might have flashed the VBIOS intended for the pure ATI vendor of the card (and you have the HIS one). Although the Board ID seems to be identical, the VBIOS version still bothers me.

True. I have fiddled with VBIOS flashing before in the past so I can give er a try

But first give the sfc command a try. Just to be sure.

It warns not to flash in Windows but this motherboard doesn't support booting from USB.

You have got to be kidding me. This is just me testing with a download of the ROM currently ON the card. I think I have no other option other than to nuke Windows.

Why are you using THAT method to install drivers?

Why not click on the AMD .exe and run it that way??

 

HD 4000 and 3000 series fall under the "Legacy" support category, so it no longer gets monthly / bi-monthly drivers updates.

The latest available on AMD's website for the HD 4000 / 3000 series, for Windows 7 x64, is version 13.9 (2013 September).

Because the installer does jack. I've run several different versions now of the installer and it just flat out refuses to install the display driver.

Make sure your Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable install is up-to-date, as far a Windows 7 goes.

If that is out-of-date, or corrupted, you will run into some issues.

It looks like the Service Pack 1 (Microsoft eventually combined SP1 and SP2 together) might need to be downloaded and installed manually too.

Apparently at some point in time, the SP1 update was changed so it was not automatically downloaded / installed.
