Yeah, their support website is useless.

I gave up trying to force it to work with XP, and installed Windows 7. I eventually got it to install with the correct drivers, unfortunately my motherboard doesn't support Windows 7 so any time the graphics card was actually put in use I got a Blue Screen.  There was a supposed hotfix from microsoft that corrected the issue, and after several updates to security following that, I was still in the same situation.  I've, for the time being, given up on installing that particular video card in my system.  I've currently got a Geforce FX 5200 (128mb) installed, which is a drastic downgrade, but at least the system is stable.

Well, it was hard to believe this, but I check it and I agree.

The modding part can still work. This is how you do it:

1. Put the card into your computer.

2. Open the device manger and check the properties of your card. Look up its hardware id, which can be found on the details tab (select hardware ids), and looks like "PCI\VEN_*&DEV_*.......".

3. Download the latest cartalyst legacy for HD 4k cards which is made for your OS.

4. Look up the .inf file in the extracted package and open it with notepad.

5. Find the section where it lists cards with their hardware ids.

6. Find a random 4650 and replace the device id to the id of your card.

7. Save the file and try installing the drivers again. (Note: The digital signature will be gone, you'll get a prompt when attempting to install.)

Note: If the install manager doesn't want to install it, try installing manually through the device manager.
