AMD APU graphics drivers for Windows 2000?

19 posts in this topic

I'd like to know if there are unofficial drivers for the APU graphics for Win2k. If not, can somebody make them? Thanks.

This is the same issue I have. The APU is not supported under any driver. A6-6400k here. HD8470D

As these processors merge with GPUs we're going to have a lot less win2k choices if there is never a driver available :(

If you're not planning to do any 3D accel or play any games you can use the universal svga driver Here

Sucks but at least you can get out of 640x480..

640x480?! There's no need to go back to the 1980s, you can use the latest AMD 8-core CPUs and NVIDIA video including USB 3.0.

Ya I'd just have to return all the hardware I just bought :P

I'm running mini-itx with no room for a discreet card (on purpose)

I'll just keep waiting til someone *COUGH* BWC *COUGH* can perform another miracle for us

BWC you're the best! I loaded up the new drivers on my A6-6400K and they worked great! I can finally use this system the way I intended with Win2k and without an NVIDIA card :D

ほんとにどうもありがとうございました!!

But I use nVIDIA GTX780Ti on my Windows 2000 :)

AMD HD 5xxx, 6xxx, 7xxx, 8xxx and 9xxx make the screen white out, when you use video helper function (some games use it for example opening ).

Im having trouble for both Windows 98 and Windows 2000 because of my graphics card ATI Radeon X1200. The first AMD Catalyst which supports it is for Windows XP - version 7.6. Windows 98 SE is blocked to version 6.2 and Windows 2000 SP4 is blocked to version 6.5.

Im generally upset. :(

You can use Legacy ATI Driver 10.2 for Windows 2000 from on my blog.

No, I'm avoiding Windows Update.

@RacerBG, I understand you are avoiding Windows update and you feel that SP's are the only updates worth installing, but unless you are content with only using hardware and software that was officially supported by the OS+SP, you might have to change your stance. You can't be upset and complain when something doesn't work when there have been updates that fix issues which you refuse to apply, or when other software depends on those updates being in place.

Cheers and Regards

Well to be honest if this is my only choice then I give up my "strategy" at least for Windows 2000. I will take a look at SP 5.2 later on and try again my luck.

@RacerBG - please don't complain if you don't follow the prerequisites. I honestly don't understand your aversions to a Fully Updated Windows 9x/NT/2K/Vista/7 OS. :unsure: You've repeated this in multiple places. Please note that many fixes are specifically for preventing something from "breaking" in addition to simple security updates.

I have a Dell Latitude C800 laptop with a ATI Mobility M4 GPU and I've tried the ATI Catalyst 10.2 Legacy drivers with it... Blackwingcat: I think it would make a lot of sense to back-port the Legacy 13.1 Catalyst drivers meant for Windows XP to Windows 2000 too...
