    Can't Install ATI x300 dirvers on windows 8


    I have a compaq nx9600 with an ATI x300 graphics card. I am running the Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation build 9200. I have tried the ATI 10.8 legacy drivers and the new 12.8 drivers for windows 8 with no luck. When I try to manually point to the extracted driver files through the device manager it says "the best driver is already installed" even though it's just the basic display adapter. Any help would be a appreciated.

    Device doctor found a driver that worked.

    Care to go into specifics about how you got this to work? I tried 'device doctor' but it found no drivers that Win 8 would accept.
