    Dell Inspiron 1501 Graphics Driver

    I just installed Windows 8 Release Preview. I tried to install the AMD ATI Catalyst Legacy Display Driver, which installed fine, but I have no display settings in the app or the ability to change the screen resolution normally through Windows. I also cannot plug-in my external monitor. I plug it in, select Devices from the new Windows sidebar on the right side of the screen, and nothing shows up. I also try connecting through the Windows Mobility Center, and it says "Your PC can't project to another screen. Try reinstalling the driver or using a different video card." Can someone help? I am using a Dell Inspiron 1501 with the 32 bit Release Preview.

    Someone asked about this just the other day - you MAY be in luck, but it's hard to say as Dell stopped releasing drivers for the 1501 right after Vista released:
