I downloaded and ran Everest Home and it recommended to update my ATI Radeon7500(RV200) Video Adapter drivers. It also gave me the following address. www.ati.com/support/driver.html .

I went to the address and found that the first link (Catalyst 6.9 Windows XP - Driver download) seemed to be the one and opened up a new page. At the top of this page was a list of supported products and a little further down was a list of unsupported products among which I found the link for the Radeon 7500.

I clicked on this link and it took me to a page with the download Catalyst 6.9 Windows XP - Driver download. It also says I should have XP SP2 installed and Microsoft .NET Framework. I have SP2 but how do I find out if I have .NET. I am now confused and not being very PC technical don't want to mess up anything on my PC Graphics card.

Would one of you clever chaps be kind enough to give me a little mini tutorial on what I need to do to update my drivers.

Thanks in advance for any help offered.

I have SP2 but how do I find out if I have .NET. I am now confused and not being very PC technical don't want to mess up anything on my PC Graphics card.


The .NET framework can be installed from your Windows XP SP2 installation disc. I believe it's under the "Additional Tasks" button on the autorun menu (I can't remember exactly what it's called right now).

Once installed, run MS Update to see if it's up-to-date.
