Xp drivers installation help

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




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 ....
