Guys, I am having trouble for which I have not found an answer anywhere. I have a laptop with Radeon HD 4250. After upgrading to Win10, I get black screen (although only after logging into Win, before logging, the screen works). I tried the procedure: restart into Safe mode with networking, in order to download the driver 8.970.100.9001. However, I cannot connect to the internet. Win tells me, in this mode, that they cannot find any network device. Unfortunately, I cannot find this particular driver for direct download anywhere. I would like to download it onto another computer and try to run it/install it from a flash drive.
I guess clean install of Win10 is not going to help either :-(. Any advice?

I recently installed Windows 10 because got new MBO+CPU+RAM, so went on 64-bit, and why not go on latest Windows - I don't want to see that some SW won't work because is made only for latest versions.
And I encountered something like opposite problem - my ATI HD 2600XT has no driver for Win10. Not surprised - same was with Pinnacle drivers and many others. I really don't see why I should now get some new graphic card, when this is very good for watching movies - better than Nvidia cards, and I even can play some little older games well. Full HD playback takes really little CPU power because GX card help.
I tried what was suggested in this thread - to run in compatibility mode and as admin - but it worked not - tried 2 latest versions of driver. It was just that Assistant stucked at one point, and did not continue install. Then I tried to avoid it, and run separated setup files for diverse parts - like display driver installer. It said that not for this Windows version. To add, that I deinstalled existing driver + everything AMD display related, and ended tasks with task manager. Then came idea to do driver install without setup program - so did it in old fashion: Device Manager, then install driver - manually select location - selected DIR of installer (what can not work in Win10 by them) and voila - driver installed.
Ofcourse, even more wanted to install CCC - that color/brightness settings on monitor are really somethin what only Microsoft can shamelessly to provide - really pathetic. And it is possible too - just use msi file in APPS/CCC/Core-static. It installs well. I did not add it in startup, just put link on Desktop. And now I have it all, using driver and CCC what is not for Win 10
Conclusion - *******s made it intentionally not installable, while driver and CCC is perfectly good for Win10, just to force people to throw away their old (actually only 5-8 years) HW and buy new - and pollute further our Planet.
I have a Acer Aspire 5552 and it has a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 And will these drivers work with it. I need the 64bit drivers..?
URGENT!!! PLEASE HELP!!!
What is the full name of the .inf file I need to direct the driver updater to on the device manager in order to install the ATI graphics driver for the 4200 series (the same one you use). All the .inf files I have tried so far, seem to keep reinstalling the Basic Windows Graphics Driver and this is not what I want. Please help.
[QUOTE=PhilGates;324523]You need to uninstall your previous AMD Control centre (Remove everything) and restart your computer, and then install the windows 7/8 AMD legacy driver (AMD Catalyst 13.4 Legacy Driver) under compatibility mode windows 8 with administrative rights (Right click on setup and select compatibility mode Windows 8, place tick in Administrative rights), this will then give you partial Catalyst control centre. You then need to go to Device manager and manually force install the legacy display driver which did not install using setup. Double click on Ati display driver choose driver tab, select update driver, select 'browse my computer' for driver, then select 'Let me pick from list' click on have disk, and browse to your driver directory and select the driver inf file, this will then install the legacy driver correctly, and give you full functionality of the Legacy driver. This driver works fine with no issues detected so far, even the app market works fine.
Hope this helps, all the best.
