I need drivers for an ATI Radeon HD 4850

The card worked fine until after a Windows Update last year.I don't know which one it was.


When I went to the support page I only found ATI Radeon HD 4850 X2 drivers. I installed them and I when I attempt to stream to my TV by HDMI the image is great, but there is no sound.


Windows Troubleshooter didn't help. When I test the connection I receive an error message.I have attached a screen shot.


I have Windows 10 Pro 64 bit on a desktop PC

There are no drivers for that graphics card that support Win10 on the AMD site. Upgrading to a modern/compatible graphics card is less than $90

Thanks for the response.

This driver package works well with the video card:

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc



Unfortunately this driver is installed on the HDMI:




When Windows updated the driver the HDMI no longer transmitted audio.

I'll check on a late model video card.
