  • Download AMD Chipset Drivers for Windows 7 for ATI Catalyst Driver

    I've been trying to install and configure my new AMD Phenom II X4 810 computer with mainboard GigaByte GA-MA78GM-UD2H.

    GigaByte GA-MA78GM-UD2H mainboard contains the AMD 780G + SB700 Chipset. And for updating the drivers for a Windows 7 operating system, I had difficulty to find and download AMD chipset drivers or ATI Catalyst driver for GigaByte GA-MA78GM-UD2H mainboard.

    First I download and installed the Windows Update suggested graphic driver for ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics. But this driver that Windows suggested is old when compared with the default installed by Windows 7 driver.

    So I downloaded the Windows 7 driver suitable for Windows 7 64 bit architecture from mainboard producer GigaByte 's web site.

    Here is the link that I used for Windows 7 64bit driver AMD Chipset Driver (include chipset\sata raid\vga driver) from GigaByte.

    Later I installed this driver, I did not get any improvement in the Windows 7 Experience Index for graphics applications and graphics subscores.

    Finally I found a newer Windows 7 driver from AMD. Most recent Catalyst Drivers for Windows 7 can be downloaded with additional optional applications from Windows 7 64Bit Catalyst Drivers.

    When I installed the Catalyst dirivers on my Windows 7 Ultimate computer followed by the installation of optional packages Avivo Video Converter and HydraVision, I got 0.1 point increase in the Windows 7 Experience Index results for graphics.

    Perhaps the results I got after so much work for the graphics driver for Windows 7 is not perfect, at least I know that they are the most recent drivers for Windows 7 X64 OS.

  • I have installed Windows 7 aka Windows Seven successfully

    Hello all,

    Are you waiting for the new OS that Microsoft is going to release within next year. Perhaps Windows 7 the next version of Vista systems might be released before 2010, by the end of the last quarter in 2009.

    Any way, I wondered a lot. And download the Windows 7 the first day it is released for MSDN Subscribers. I have downloaded both the 32 bit and the 64 bit editions of Window 7 Ultimate edition from MSDN subscriber downloads. But a friend of mine has installed the 32-bit edition before I install the X64 Windows Seven.

    His opinion about the Windows 7, although the released version is a Beta version, is very positive. I know he does not like working on betas. Actually he was looking for a stable operating system after working on Vista Ultimate. His main aim is running the Vista or the Windows 7 as a home media pc. And his first impression about the Windows 7 is very encouraging. He said he was tired of the Vista, and Windows 7 is much more reliable when compared with Vista SP2.

    If you ask my opinion about Microsoft Windows Seven, after a failed installation attempt as you can see how I failed because of insufficient disk place at Microsoft Windows 7 - A failed installation titled picture gallery, I managed to install Windows 7 both as an upgrade from Windows Vista or as a fresh installation.

    I had very limited disk space on my hard disk, so I had to bought a new disk in order to spare disk space for HD movies :) By the way I bought a Samsung SpinPoint F1 series hard disk. Do you have any comments on these disks. Actually after I heard about the failures about a wide range of products of a disk producers I'm glad to have chosen the Samsung SpinPoints.

    OK, now a few notes about the Windows 7 installation experience that I can share with you. First it is very simple, you do not have to stand by your computer. You just type a few descriptive names, chose your regional selections, etc. Then start installation and take a short break. Because the installation is also fast. I can easily say that Windows 7 Beta release is the simpliest operating system installation I had ever experienced.

    The desktop is very similar to Vista with a few slight differences. If you wonder the new Windows 7 games as I had, there is not an additional game that were existing in the Vista Ultimate editions unfortunately.

    The IE 8 is installed default on the Windows Seven. By the way the Internet Explorer IE 8 Beta 2 is far better than the first beta.

    I would like to share my experiences on Windows 7 soon again in this blog. If you have any questions, please share them with us.

    Wish you a good Windows 7 experience too!
