I posted this in the ATI section but was unable to get an answer...
In an attempt to update my video card driver, I removed my old driver that came on the CD accompanying my video card (Control Panel >> Add or Remove Programs). I downloaded Catalyst Software Suite (http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/Pages/radeon_xp-...). Ran the .exe, it extracted fine. I ran the installation and it said installation was finished. When I restart my computer, my computer doesn't detect a video card driver at all and prompts me that new hardware was found yada yada...
I also noticed that the directory where the stuff should have been installed is completely empty... C:\Program Files\ATI Technologies
Why is it empty? I tried reinstalling and have had no success.
My Graphics Card is an ATI Radeon HD 3650
Please help, and thanks in advance.
Here is my dxdiag for additional info (and yes I realize there is no display device, and that's because it isn't detecting a driver):

Okay hang on I think I know what I was doing wrong...
My video card is a ATI Radeon HD 3650 AGP... I didn't think the AGP part mattered but I guess it does.
I'm not sure where to find the driver for this card... I keep getting directed to some sort of hotfix download...
Do I need to do a clean install of the hotfix? Or should I install the driver from the CD and install the hotfix as a supplement to it?
