    Xp drivers installation help

    redstick

      Hi to all, here's my 1st post on this forum .

      I hope some kind soul can help me with this.

      I recently updated my computer

      after 12 (yes,twelve!) years of faithful service .

      My new machine runs on Win 7 &

      in common with many folks, it seems, I still need Xp to run my vintage software.

      After much time,effort & a lot of help from YouTube, I succeeded in

      creating a dual boot & installing Xp sp2 32 bit (now updated to sp3) on a partition

      of the HD.When I run Xp ,everything works fine.

      The problem is that Xp doesn't recognize my Radeon graphics card.I've tried dozens

      of times to install the appropriate drivers from the manufacturer's site & even if they appear

      to be installing themselves in the end nothing changes.

       

      Here's the specs :-

      OS   Windows 7 Home Premium  64 bit & Xp Home Edition 32 bit Sp3

      Graphics  1024MB ATI AMD Radeon HD 5700

      CPU  Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 @ 2.50GHz

      RAM   8,00 Go Dual-Channel DDR3

      MOBO  ASUS P5P41T/USB3

      HD    698GB SAMSUNG HD753LJ ATA Device (SATA)

       

      Please any help would be greatly appreciated as it's months now since

      I started trying to solve this problem & am running out of ideas.

      Yours (nearly!) desperately ....
