    I had this problem as well. This is how is solved it: I was using a HP Pavillion notebook with AMD Radeon GPU.
    PROBS:

    • dxdiag showed display was working OK with all direct X Features enabled, BUT graphics adpter name was Microsoft Basic Display Adapter and only showed 256 MB graphics memory instead of the 2GB in my Radeon Graphics adapter.
    • Device Manager showed display adapter 'working properly', but instead of 'AMD Radeon' as my adapter showed Microsoft Basic Display Adapter.
    • GPU-Z AND CPU-Z were all showing Microsoft Basic Display Adapter as my display adaptor.
    • The graphics drivers from HP.com dint work and graphics card was still not detected.

    SOLUTION:

    1. I checked my notebook Specs from HP.com website and found that my notebook had AMD Radeon HD 8650M/8670M Dual GPU (1 GB DDR3 dedicated). This was the only way since device manager, dxdiag, system info, CPU-Z and GPU-Z were all showing Microsoft Basic Display Adapter as my adapter name!!
    2. I went to the amd site: Download Drivers , System: Notebook, Family: Radeon HD Series, Product: Radeon HD 8xxxM Series, OS: Windows 8
    3. Download Driver
    4. Install and finally worked.

    I have a Tek Panel 370 37" All in One Touchscreen Computer with and AMD Dual Core 64 Bit processor. I installed Window 8 and then upgraded to 8.1.

    My issue is that I cannot get a driver for the ATI Radeon X1200 integrated video card to function. I go through all of the suggested procedures and I end up with the following message: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43).

    Please advise.

    An off brand with no support/driver option on their home page is troubling.
