    I recently bought a video card and installed it into my computer. However, every time I try to install the software, I get this message:

    I'm completely confused because I'm using a standard VGA driver. Windows automatically installed it after I disabled my integrated graphics. :confused:

    I can't figure this problem out and get the video card to work on my computer so any tips would be hugely appreciated.

    Video Card Info:
    Video card: Visiontek 900089 Radeon 7000 Video Card (64MB, PCI, w/DVI/TV-OUT) from TigerDirect.ca
    Software: VisionTek 6.4 Radeon / ATI


    System Info:
    Windows 7
    Manufacturer: Acer
    Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) Processor LE-1640 2.70 GHz
    Installed memory (RAM): 1.00 GB (895 MB usable)
    System type: 32-bit Operating System

    The Radeon 7000 drivers are not compatible with Windows 7; that video card is ancient and doesn't support Windows 7 fully. The integrated Radeon 2100 is massively newer and better then this card, especially since this card uses a PCI interface compare to a modern PCI-Express interface that video cards now come in.

    Also if you got a compatible graphics card, you'd want to disable the graphics card in the BIOS rather then in Windows as that will fully turn it off and return the 128MB of system memory its currently using.

    I don't think there is a compatable windows 7 driver
    for a radeon 7000 card.
    You could try right clicking the adapter and click update
    driver,then manually browse to the driver folder.
    Probably going to cause more problems trying to
    install that on windows 7 though.
