Hi! I recently acquired a used ATI 7350 HD and I've unsuccessfully tried to install the Catalyst package. The installation simply won't complete. Since  all I really need is the driver itself, I tried to find it and download it (from reliable sources), also unsuccessfully.

I tried decompiling the Catalyst package, but couldn't find the .inf file for Windows 7, so I tried the manual driver update within the control panel and chose the inf file for Windows Vista. This seemed to work, but I really doubt it's the best solution.

So my question is: where could I download the inf file for Windows 7 64 bit for my ATI 7350 HD?

Thank you very much in advance!

There's no such card as ATI 7350 HD. There is an AMD 7350 but as far as I know it is an OEM card, so you have to use OEM drivers with it.

Well, if there's no such card as ATI 7350, then I suppose this information isn't correct either:

 

or is it?

What I found on google:

Lenovo,Acer desktops,

Rebranded HD 5450/6350. OEM only,

turns out this card is very low-end and OEM-only

Thank you!  Unfortunately, I don't have any Driver CD or executable, other than the Catalyst. Would it still be possible to download a standalone driver for the Radeon 7*** series (Win7 64) from any realiable sources? 

As I mentioned, the one I managed to extract from the Catalyst, which corresponds to Windows Vista, seems to be working fine, but I'm not sure I won't find incompatibilities in the future

Thanks

I would agree, as it might have a special VBIOS from Lenovo which would prevent it from being detected by the AMD installer. If you don't do any 3D gaming (in other words, you play Facebook or other browser based games), you can get the PowerColor HD 5450 for $9.99 (and EVERYONE should have a HD 5450 for a backup card). For a bit more grunt for casual games you could get the MSI R7 250 for $59.99 (though I'd suggest spending $10 more and getting a better brand), and it is no slouch when it comes to 3D gaming with details raised at 1280x720, and it also has the power to help with GPU assisted tasks (media encoding, graphics design, etc.) Then for a good midrange gaming card there is the Sapphire R9 270 for $144.99. With a PCIe 1.1 based board, I would not suggest going any higher.

HOWEVER, the ability for you to use the 250 and above will depend on your power supply.

That 5450 is listed for $29.99, not $9.99. Also if you add shipping costs (especially overseas, where most people live), it will be more expensive than just going to a local store and buying a video card. Even a faster and better one.

$9.99 after $20 rebate!

Thank you all!

I had actually been looking at graphic cards for a while. I even thought about spending a good 150$ and get a decent one, since I've grown tired of playing Starcraft and such games with lowest graphics. Still, I got the HD 7350 for free from a friend and kinda wanted to give it some use before I purchase something better. 

 

I appreciate the info very much though!
