    Mobility Radeon HD 3400 problem


    Hi all,

    I've recently upgraded my Toshiba A300D laptop to Windows 8 after changing to an SSD drive.

    Everything is running great and really fast. However, I am having problems with running video files, youtube videos and games. The problem is that Toshiba do not provide good driver support and I am running the WDDM 1.1 graphic driver that comes with Win8. Some videos run good, but some just run... Games are not running as they used to be on Windows 7.
    I cannot change it, I tried numerous times, but without any luck.

    Can someone help me with this?

    My system info is: AMD Athlon TK-57 2x1.9Ghz, 3 GB Ram, Mobility Radeon HD3470 128mb, Sata 2 SSD (wich is installed correctly) and a secondary Sata 2 HDD.

    Sorry, but as far as I have been able to find out, there is no Win8 driver for any of the AMD chipsets older than the HD 5x series. I have one of the HD 4x series and even though my motherboard (Gigabyte) published Win8 drivers, the video drivers (for the onboard chipset) only offer the basic features. The advanced features that are available in Win7 are not there.

    That's what happened with my ATI Radeon HD 4830 graphic card. I paid a lot for it maybe 1- 1 in a half years ago, and its now garbage unless I give it to someone running windows 7 or older. Thankfully, I purchased a brand new motherboard with decent built in Intel HD2000, so it's doable for me for now.

    As for you Monky, you might be out of luck.
