          Go here...

           

          Download Drivers

           

          Use the drop down menus, under Manually Select Your Driver, not the auto detect.

           

          The driver appears to be a couple of years old. Unfortunately, Vista is pretty much abandonware.

                  1. Using steps 1-5 , manually select your graphics drivers HERE and download/save to your desktop. Do not use automatic find and install.

                   

                  2. Remove old drivers using 'uninstall a program' in the computer control panel****

                   

                   

                      FOR COMPUTERS WITH INTEL PROCESSORS***

                   

                  Select AMD Catalyst Install manager and EXPRESS uninstall all AMD software including the install manager. Reboot. Install the new driver suite. Reboot.

                   

                  ================================================================================================================================

                   

                      FOR COMPUTERS WITH AMD PROCESSORS***

                   

                  Select AMD Catalyst Install manager and selectively uninstall the graphics drivers and CCC only. Reboot. Install the new driver suite. Reboot.

                   

                  ( Note: Disable all anti-virus/ anti-malware/ anti-anything while performing the installation. Very important.)

                   

                   

                   

                  Please note that if you choose to "Express Install" the new drivers, it will automatically install the 'Gaming Evolved' (raptr) app in addition to the drivers. If you do not wish to have raptr on your computer, choose 'Custom' install the new drivers and uncheck the box next to 'Gaming Evolved'.

                   

                   

                   

                  This is a proven installation method that will work 99% of the time for everybody. However, there is the 1% who will need to use the 'Clean' install method. Use this if you run into issues.
