    Yes! I had the same issue for a Lenovo t60 with ATI X1400 and a WSXGA+ Screen, W8 always saying the installed basic driver was fine.

    ... finally solved in analogy to csae's solution!

    This is the correct driver for an ATI X1400 on Lenovo: Video driver (ATI Mobility Radeon, FireGL PCI Express-2) for Windows Vista (32-bit, 64-bit) - ThinkPad R60, T60, T60p, Z61m, Z61p ("Video driver (ATI Mobility Radeon, FireGL PCI Express-2) for Windows Vista (32-bit, 64-bit) - ThinkPad R60, T60, T60p, Z61m, Z61").

    -> so I think it would be a good idea to a) use a computer manufacturer's driver, not ATI's legacy versions and b) the VISTA version (at least in my case, as notebook was delivered with vista)

    I uninstalled all ATI stuff I had installed in the meantime.
    And yes, as trubul says, mobility modder's no good. Uninstalled that as well. Still have to get rid of .net.

    - Installed the above mentioned driver

    - Picked it from C:\DRIVERS\WIN\VIDEO\Packages\Drivers\Display\LH_INF

    - It worked

    Thanks to the posters above!

    I have a HP laptop with the Radeon X1600 Mobility graphics card. CSAE's solution did not work for me, but after reading the solution referenced above by imacuser, I tried that and solved the problem. Turns out the X1600 Mobility card is not referenced in the .inf file, so Windows 8 does not recognize the driver as valid for that card. The solution is to edit the .inf file to insert the X1600 Mobility card. See

    Also be aware that there is another driver file on the ATI Legacy site with a very similar file name. Be sure to get the exact file specified by csae.

    I did not have to install in compatibity mode. It worked fine in Win 8 after editing the .inf file.
