Does anyone know of a Windows 7 64 bit driver that will work with the AMD Radeon 8330 ?

The catalyst 13.5 does not work. The Catalyst 13.4 does not work. AMD refuses to supply the customers with proper drivers, just that verification tool thing that does not work.

It is a Acer Aspire E1-522 Laptop.

If anyone has a Win7 / 64 bit driver for the Radeon 8330 it would be appreciated if you could direct me to your download link on where to get it at.

Thank You

Talk to Acer, primary laptop support is provided by the manufacturer.

Thank You for your response.

Acer will only supply support for Win 8 (which is just another vista disaster in the making) the laptop came with win 8 and I backed up the drivers then got rid of that OS and installed win 7 home premium 64 bit, but the drivers will not work with win 7.

Would you know of any other suggestions. I am very surprised that amd does not have drivers for their own product.

Seen as how AMD support is worthless, I have gone through numerous drivers from many different brand names and then after working with Toshiba and Hp as we tried many different methods we got it working.

I will let you know how to downgrade an AMD from that garbage windows 8 to a proper Windows 7. 

When you are dealing with an inferior AMD product like the AMD A4-5000 with AMD Radeon HD 8330, and they refuse to support their own products but instead send you on a wild goose chase to manufacturers, etc. You will find that it is much better to stay away from AMD all together and go with Intel. I am glad this piece of junk AMD is not mine.

You will need the following 2 files for this to work ...

1.) 13-4_vista_win7_win8_32-64_sb (install this first)

2.) AMD_Catalyst_13.6_Mobility_Beta2 (install second)

No other files will work.

THANK YOU TOSHIBA AND HP FOR WORKING WITH ME TO FIGURE THIS OUT, AND OFFERING UP THE CUSTOMER SUPPORT THAT AMD SHOULD BE DOING BUT REFUSES TO.

THANK YOU INTEL FOR MAKING A BETTER PRODUCT.
