I have an old old computer. I took a 256mb GPU out of it and put a 512mb GPU in. This is an Aries n279. I am trying to find drivers for it. Aries.com is currently for sale, so it's not there. Any idea where to get this legacy software?

I didn't realize it was the same thing. So I go to radeon website and find the drivers and click...and nothing happens, no download, no nothing. WTF?

What O/S? 32 bit or 64 bit?

It looks like Win 10 & this card are not supported, but they have drivers for 8, 7, Vista & XP.
Sometime you can use a Win8 driver with Win10 though.

Your gonna need to give us more than "Iv tried nothing and everything has failed". show us a page, give us a link. Do you even have an OS installed to test?

If you make it taxing to get help, your threads are going to tax you.

Huh, it does indeed seem like AMD has removed legacy drivers. Try this:


Or this:

When looking for druvers for that GPU on AMD.com you only find the the messege "AMD software and drivers are designed to work best for up-to-date operating systems. Please be sure to update your operating system before installing drivers.".
