    Vista problems with Radeon R7 370.

    grumpyoldbastard

      I'm trying to use my Radeon R7 on my computer running Vista SP2, with no luck. All workarounds I have tried have failed, claiming the modified installation file contains no driver compatible with my hardware. Both with show compatible hardware checked and unchecked.

       

      It seems my only solution is to send my Radeon back to the retailer and get a Geforce.

       

      Getting an other brand of GPU = Free
      Getting a new OS = $119

      Tough choice.

          Your GPU isnt supported in Vista. Upgrade your OS.

          Same will likely go with Nvidia. Windows lifecycle fact sheet - Windows Help Its not just the driver, its the OS and what tech it can support.
