I'm having an incredibly difficult time locating the drivers for this video card (1gb 8x AGP). I've downloaded what I thought were the correct drivers several times from ATI's support pages, but they do not show up when trying to update the driver for the "display adapter" when I try to load them manually.  There are hundreds of ATI drivers listed, but no Radeon HD 4650, which is what I assume the driver should be listed as. 

OS: XP PRO 32-BIT SP3

CPU: Pentium 4 26.Ghz

RAM: 4GB  Dual Channel DDR @166mhz

Motherboard: Intel D875PBZ

Sorry for being a new user with a new thread, I hope I'm not stepping on any toes for doing that. I've spent the better part of 2 days trying to figure this out, and really don't have the energy to continue without some help.

Any advice or assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Mark

Nope...you are one of the very, very few new posters who took the time to supply the info needed and actually posted in the correct forum...so we are off to a good start! Firstly, the drivers for your card will be listed as "4xxx series" and they can be found here > http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/legacy/Pages/legacy-radeonaiw-xp.aspx

As to the installation, I would use the 'clean install' method here > http://forums.amd.com/game/messageview.cfm?catid=444&threadid=162444&enterthread=y  and since you have XP you need to read this about XP and .netframework > http://forums.amd.com/game/messageview.cfm?catid=444&threadid=162109&enterthread=y

I've downloaded and installed .net v4.0, but when trying to update to v4.0.3 I get this error.

"Microsoft .net framework 4 multi-targeting pack was not found. please repair your installation for microsoft visual studio 2010 in order to get this update."

Currently installed on my machine:

Microsoft .net framework 2 sp2
3 sp2

3.5 sp1 

4 Client Profile

4 Extended

For what it's worth, DirectX 9.0c is installed as well.

 

Any ideas?

Yes....first go to Windows update...look at the optional downloads and get current. If you got 4.0 installed then that should suffice...again, windows update will have a update for it. Follow the rest of the outline for installation.

Currently downloading and installing many xp and .net 4 security updates as well as various other updates.  26 in all.  I'll reply again with an update after installs.

Yes...with Windows 7 there are 2 updates to 4.5 plus numerous security updates. These are listen as 'recommended' or 'optional' and are not downloaded with the normal downloads when auto-update is selected. For some people it has been years since they last checked.

After installing updates upon updates upon updates, nothing has changed.  When I try to manually update the driver "Radeon HD 4650" is still not listed. In fact, none of the Radeon HD cards are listed, nor is any model under a "Radeon 7000". There are various All-in-Wonder, rage, and mobility cards however.

I've double checked everything and can't determine what the issue is.  My must pc's be so damned frustrating?!?!

Any further advice?

I gave you the link for your drivers. Just follow the clean install tut and install them. Not a very complicated thing > http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/legacy/Pages/legacy-radeonaiw-xp.aspx

I agree!! Which is why it's so completely frustrating and baffeling that the driver isn't showing up on the list.

From the device manager, I right click on the Video Adapter and select update driver. I select "manually select driver from list" and there are many, many ATI products listed, but not the one I need.

@Stumped: He's doing it right, it's only the card missing from the inf file. We've seen a lot of people reporting this.

 

@OP:

Either mod your card into the drivers or look it up on the xfx website and download what they have for it.

The xfx support website is essentially useless. In order to access any of their support information you have to register the product with a specific pass code. Since I have no documentation for the video card, I have no pass code and no way to access their support information.

However, they did list ATI's website as a source for the drivers. 

With all that said, I downloaded this same driver pack when Windows 7 was installed on the machine, and had no issues finding the correct driver.  Unfortunately my motherboard isn't "compatible" with windows 7 (no BIOS updates for that OS), so it couldn't effectively communicate with the OS and the video card. Thus the reason I downgraded to XP.

How would I "mod" my video card into the drivers list?

Also, is it possible that I need these "hotfix" drivers as well?

After installing the hotfix drivers, there has been no change. The driver is still not listed in the installable list.
