    Just installed x1950 pro succesfully.


    I just wanted to share that x1950 pro works with legacy 10.2 drivers for vista on my test machine with Win 8 x64 release preview. First update Dot Net. Then you need to disable windows defender (found some ebay shortcuts as malware during driver installation and stoped it), run driver in compatibility mode with Win 7, run as Administrator. If driver installation hangs use driver sweeper to clean everything and start over. Even Catalyst control center works fine
    I had problems to set native resolution for my 19" lcd monitor (1440x900) through windows "Screen resolution" applet. It kept setting higher refresh rate than allowed so my monitor reported "out of range" error. Trick is to set desired resolution and not click apply or OK, but do to Advanced setting, choose monitor and make sure that reresh rate is set to 60 HZ and then click apply. Works good. You can also use CCC to set resolution once installed properly.

    Thankyou!!!!!! This worked beautifully the first time! I had issues with it when I had the preview edition of 8 but upgraded and saw this post. Great job!

    No problem. I actually use Windows 8 RTM at work now with x1950 pro without any problems.

    ATI x1950 GT driver installation on windows 10


    I installed the ati driver and catalyst for Ati x1950 GT in windows 10 by downloading the catalyst driver from their site ( the vista 32-64 bit pack) and run it in compatibility mode for windows vista sp2. It worked just fine. No need to use other software or to disable your windows defender. Hope it helps you! Maybe it's time to upgrade our graphics card, but it's still so damn good ))
