    Hi everyone, I'm trying to update the driver of my laptop's ati radeon xpress 1150, with windows XP 32-bits. I tried with the catalyst center, which downloaded this driver: 10-02_legacy_xp32-64_dd_ccc. However, when trying to install this error came up: "....setup did not find a driver compatible with your current hardware or operating system. Setup will now exit....."

    I would be glad if somebody could help me out. I read that I could go to "Device Manager and choose to Update Driver of the Standard VGA Adapter." Then go to "Have Disk option and browse to the XP6A_INF folder" (This was for a guy with the same problem but with a 64-Bit comp). Here I found two possible folders to use: XP6A_INF and XP_INF, so I assume the XP_INF is for my 32-Bit comp. Then install it that way.

    The thing is, scary messages come warning you the computer could go bunkers and die, and I didn't have the balls to go through. Is there any other way to approach this problem, if not, is the way described a legitimate option? If so, is that driver the correct one? And should I choose the XP_INF file? So many questions!

    I hope this was not too long. Thanks in advance!

    If the device is not listed in Device Manager, but says "VGA" instead, it most likely will not be detected. There is a lack of communication between the device and the OS. You will need to go to the manufacturer's web site and find and install the chipset (platform, Intel Inf utility) driver for that communication to take place.

    The device should be identified even without a driver. And Windows already has a fairly good ATI driver.
