That is the official ATi Catalyst driver for Radeons. Do you know if the card even works?

When you turn on the PC with the x850 in it, do you see anything?

So the card works but the drivers refuse to install? I'll do more research.

Go there and on the ledt look for Windows XP - Radeon - Previous Drivers. Listed there is all the Catalyst drivers since 5.1 and they are at 6.3 now. Try any of them and see if they work.

This made me laugh.

Attempting to install the integrated WDM driver under Windows XP may result in an error message being displayed indicating that the hardware is not installed because the install Wizard cannot find the necessary software

To resolve this issue, download and install Catalyst 6.2 or later


Not sure what to tell you.

Well did you try installing the previous version of the driver. I believe they keep some of the old drivers available for you to download. I have known this to happen as well.

If noone else has any other solutions, I would RMA the card (they should fix/replace it for free) and see if the problem remains.

WDM in this instance refers to Windows Driver Model, nothing to do with Vista.

The 6.3 drivers should have worked.
