i searched for my graphics card on amd sight and it brought me to AMD catalyst 10.2. When i try to install it, it says that the software i'm trying to download is not compatible with my ati radeon x1050. This download is for operating system: windows xp home. This is the link:

ATI Catalyst 10.2

The setup cannot be completed because this software for my ati radeon x1050 is not compatible

Well I do have ATI Display driver (x1050) installed for my video card displayed in my device manager and i just want to update it. I also have an ati uninstall utility. I have the install disk for the graphics card.

How can it not be compatible? I've been using this video card when i used to play online games. This computer has been inactive for some years. Then i tried to play a couple years back and it worked, but then i stopped using the PC again. The computer was inactive for like 2 years until i finally decided to turn it back on.

There is a program my little brother likes to play called Minecraft and says that the game can be fixed if i update drivers. The one i went to must be incorrect because it didn't help. Can you direct me to the correct link? I've tried catalyst 11.3, 9.3, and 10.2. What could be the problem? Minecraft was working now it's having an issue that the drivers need to be updated

I have .net framework 2.0 sp2 that's required to run it.

I popped in the CD and this pocture showed up:

So MAYBE ALREAD INSTALLED?

Here's the error for minecraft:

The driver you downloaded is the correct one for your video adapter, but you must uninstall the existing driver first, then reeboot the PC.

Upon rebooting, Windows will temporarily install it's own basic driver (Standard VGA driver) for the video adapter (as indicated in your first screenshot).
You should then be able to install the ATI driver you've downloaded.

I continued installation.

Here is minecraft error:

Bad video card drivers!
-----------------------

Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers.

It's your card that's not compatible with that particular game.

"How can it not be compatible? I've been using this video card when i used to play online games"



Different games have different requirements. Just because that card works with some online games doesn't mean it's compatible with all games.

That's strange. It started working again. The new update probably fixed or something. I used this graphic card for like 2 weeks and stopped working with new update. Now my bro says it works now :lol:
