I have a very old machine (HP Pavilion zv6000) with a RADEON Mobility Xpress 200m graphics card. Apparently, the drivers for Vista are supposed to work with Win7, (and by extension, I should think, Win8). These drivers are contained in the Catalyst Control Center (CCC) v. 10.2. However, they will not install from CCC, but return the error "failed to find any installable components", including when run as an administrator or in compatibility mode. After much searching, I figured out I could access the proper drivers directly from the Update Driver wizard by choosing "Browse for driver software", then "Let me pick from a list of drivers", then "Have Disk", browsing to C:\ATI\Support\(something long)\Packages\Drivers\Display\LH_INF\CL95951.inf, and then choosing RADEON Mobility Xpress 200 series from the list. Windows does not recognize these drivers as compatible with my hardware, but I choose to install anyway. However, it immediately tells me that the drivers are not compatible with this version of windows. There are 3 instances of 200 series in the list, as well as 3 instances of "secondary", and I tried all 6. Win8 runs great, but I'm sick of the crappy screen resolution! Am I just out of luck with an ancient laptop?

Go to http://www.guru3d.com and download the latest BETA version of the ATI drivers in their Downloads section. That fixed a similar issue for me and now my card is recognized/utilized properly.

Here is a direct link to the download page:

Hope this helps!

Thanks, but the newest driver packages no longer support my card (Xpress 200m). This is a legacy product that is supported by the version I already tried.

Right click the installer>properties>compatibility>chose OS
