    Not all WDDMs are the same. I believe that Win8 wants a WDDM 1.2 driver, while the X1300 is WDDM 1.0 or 1.1.

    I tried to follow that, but I couldn't get it to work. Can you provide some better instructions please?

    I presume you're talking about the instructions in post #5, right?

    The ATI driver download is an exe file. You have to click on it to extract it to a folder -- but don't continue with the driver installation, instead, just exit.

    In Device Manager, look for Display adapters, open it, and select the option to update the driver. Use the option to select the drivers on your PC, then browse to the folder where you extracted the drivers.

    I did that and it gave me the screen shown in the attachment. I am even using a version meant for Windows 8.1 Preview!!! I appreciate your assistance.

    I think it does that if you let IT look for the drivers, but if you choose the other option, browse to the folder containing the .INF file, it will attempt to install the drivers in that folder.

    That was the result of browsing to the folder the .INF was in.

    Try to install this driver: Microsoft Update Catalog ( you may have to install an add-on from Microsoft- install it and then search for `radeon 2100`). Download the 64-bit driver (the second one), unzip it and install via Device manager- choose the first Inf file. I hope it would install! Good luck

    If you're going to use Microsoft Update Catalog, then use the following link for finding X1300 drivers: I would install the newest one -- listed at the bottom.

    You have searched for `radeon 1300` not `radeon X1300`. According to AMD Radeon X1300 is regarded as legacy so the last driver package was 10.2 (driver version 8.593) so I don't think that this driver is compatible.
