    How to Install AMD Mobility Radeon HD 4200 drivers on W7 to Upgrade?

    So, I don't have W10 yet and I can't upgrade to it because I just diagnosed the problem. Unfortunately there is no OFFICIAL compatibility for the AMD Mobility Radeon HD 4200 series (which sucks). However, there are workarounds which I found esp here ATI Radeon HD 4200 driver for 64-bit Windows 10? - Windows 10 Forums.

    But in the link, the person already had W10. But I can't upgrade. Where can i find the W10-supporting driver for my series or at least a workaround for W7? I found something about Device Manager but I tried that and it didn't work!

    There is no W10 supporting driver from AMD for their HD4x series as they dropped current driver support for that series years ago. But, you should be able to install their Legacy drivers in Win7.

    However, that won't do you any good as there are no Win10 drivers for that product, and in cases like those, you either use a Win8.1 driver or you get stuck with the MS Basic Display Adapter driver.

    The solution (which worked for me) in Win8.1 was to use Device Manager -- > Driver Update and select the .inf file for the driver package, NOT using the standard AMD driver installer.
