Will 12X and 11X drivers work with XP?

I have a Radeon 7850 video card that I got for my other, back up computer. I have XP on this computer and what I wanted to know is does any of the 12.X drivers support XP? Why I ask is because I tried a number of different 12.X and 11.X drivers and none of them work. I will install the CCC suite and re-boot and when I do that the motherboard splash screen and XP screen will come up then when it goes to boot into the actual OS nothing happens just a black screen. I's stuck I don't know what else to try.

More about will drivers work
  1. AMD's website says that 12.8 supports XP enusre you download the 32 bit driver pack from AMD.
  2. I'll give it a try and see but I'm not holding my breath.
  3. I don't see where there is any apprehension. The 12.8 drivers available from here are specifically written for the HD7xxx series graphic cards in Windows XP (32-bit).

    That is the one I tried last night and it didn't work. Thats why I'm not holding my breath that it will magically work now.
  5. I would ask in what way did it not work? If it didn't install correctly, there is probably some other issue with your system that is preventing a successful installation. You should boot into safe mode and install the (previously downloaded) drivers and reboot once more. There should not be any issues with installing these drivers onto a system running Windows XP.

  6. Well I finally got it to work unfortunately the only way I could get it to work was to wipe out the HDD and do a clean install. People can say what they want about how great AMD drivers are but I have had nothing but problems with drivers everytime I use an AMD videocard. I don't know why I keep going back to AMD I should know I'm asking for trouble.
