Installing a new graphics card in my emachines computer

Hello,
I am attempting to installl a new graphics card for my PC, and I cant find the drivers that willl work. I have a emachines w3650 that is using windows XP 32 bit. The card is basically working as I can see the screen, but It lags, it is very slow, and not working any better than the on board graphics. The new card I am using is a radeon HD 7450. Any ideas?

  1. You are connecting the monitor to the card?
    Drivers are here http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDSupportHub.aspx
    The card is not very powerful and difference would not be noticeable in everyday tasks.
  2. Yes, I am connecting the monitor straight to the output on the card. I have checked my device manager, and the "?" keeps coming up in the graphics card line. bottom line I cant load any drivers for it, and the CATALYST is not helping. I must be doing something wrong. Thanks. :pt1cable:
  3. 7450 do they sell that? i thought 7000 series only goes 7750 and higher.

    Have your tried the manufacturer of the Video card website?

    if not just download the lates Catalyst on www.amd.com/us
  4. You will have to doownload the drivers from the manufacturer of the video card since as you can see at the AMD web page it is not compatible with the one they make
    what brand is your card?
