Hello every body,I have a good card and in windows 7 runs perfectly but When I've installed Windows 8, the windows doesn't recognize it.In the web page I only founded the Windows 7 driver, I've downloaded the Catalist Software Suite ver 10.2 but doesn't work in Windows 8.I'm sure I'm doing something wrong.Any Help?Thanks

The X1950 is considered a Legacy card which will not have a Windows 8 driver. AMD dropped support for DirectX 9 cards. Which means no new drivers, sorry I have older cards which still work great too.

That card, like all other cards declared legacy, does not support the features necessary for full support in Windows 8. Time to upgrade.
