    ATI Radeon Xpress 1200 driver for 32 bit Windows 8 Pro

    I have an Acer Aspire 5515 with an AMD Athlon 2650eprocessor (64 bit) however, I have installed the 32 bit version of Windows 8 Pro. I cannot locate a driver for the ATI Radeon Xpress 1200 Graphics card that is compatible with Windows 8 32 bit. Acer's website is no help, since they only ever sold the Aspire 5515 with XP or Vista 64 bit systems, therefore they cannot provide what I need.

    AMD's website is useless. It's auto-detect system for determining which graphics card and operating system I'm using is incompatible with Windows 8, and there is no method for ,e to type in which card and OS I have (you can only select from pull down menus, and the 1200 series and Windows 8 are not listed). Following the links to contact their technical support take you to a video on how to determine what graphics card you have, then right back to the beginning all over again. Worthless.

    ATI says I can run a Vista driver in Windows 7, but I can't even find a Vista driver in 32 bit, and I'm using Win 8, not 7. I'm to the point where I'm going to install Windows 7 64 bit and be done with it. Any suggestions?

    The latest driver AMD lists is this one:

    ATI Catalyst

    It's a 32 bit Vista driver. If you have trouble getting it to install, the troubleshooting mode may help. (It allows you to set install compatibility to an older OS.)

    Let us know whether it works, if you please.

    Using the 32-bit Vista driver worked for me -- but, yes, I had to run the installer in Vista compatability mode. (Right-clicking on Vista installer file -- downloaded from AMD/ATI -- and choosing "troubleshoot compatibility" before installing.)

    I had seen in other forums that using the Vista installer worked, but I had not seen the suggestion to run in troubleshooting/compatibility mode. Thanks!
