Windows 10 - ATI Radeon Xpress 1150

07:20 Posted by Jurgens Krause , , , , , , 12 comments
I just spent the last 3 hours trying to get a working driver for an ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 installed on an old Dell Inspiron running Windows 10-64bit.

None of the links on discussion blogs seem to work anymore, and the WDM only driver from AMD did not actually contain any driver (as far as I could tell)

Here are the steps I followed to get the driver to install:

Download from DROPBOX or:

  1. Visit:
  2. Input the following selections
    1. Integrated Motherboard Graphics
    2. Radeon Xpress Series
    3. Radeon Xpress 1150 (though I dont think it matters)
    4. Windows Vista - 64bit (the download will contain both 32 and 64bit)
    5. Display Results

Make sure to select the full Catalyst Software Suite, the WDM integrated driver did not work for me.

Once the download is finished, run the setup. I just went for the express settings, since, on Windows 10 it does not actually install the driver anyway. Alternatively you can use a program like 7zip to extract the package without installing, but I like having the Control Center installed.

After installing, open up Device Manager, and under Display Adapters, find the one titled "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter"

Right click on it, and select properties.

Click on the "Driver" tab and then click "Update Driver"
Select "Browse my computer for driver software"
Click "Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer"
Click "Have Disk"
Click "Browse"
Navigate to C:\ATI\Support\10-2_legacy_vista32-64_dd_ccc\Packages\Drivers\Display\LH6A_INF
USE LH_INF for 32bit systems
Click "Open"
Click "OK"
Click "Next" and finish out the prompts.


  1. Ran across this from Google while looking for leads on getting Catalyst Control Center to run on Windows 10, no luck there BUT, I did want to let you know, if you run the 10-2_legacy_vista32-64_dd_ccc driver installer in compatibility mode for Windows Vista it goes off without a hitch and detects and installs everything properly. At least on my old Inspiron 1501 laptop, with the Xpress 1150.

  2. WOW! Great Job! It runs perfect on my very old Dell Vostro 1000! THANK YOU!

  3. Thanks to everyone that commented! I have an old Dell Vostro 1000. Finally got it to take the win10 update and this was great for being able to use multi-displays! Thanks for all the info!

  4. thanks for your post! you save my vostro 1000, i thinking it's not possible to install the display driver!

  5. Thank you a lot! you saved my time :)!

  6. Many thanks. I've been working on this on and off for a couple of days so I can sell my Dell Inspiron 1501 with Radeon Xpress 1150 integrated motherboard graphics

  7. Thanks for the info and the comment about running the setup in Vista compatibility mode, it did the trick for me on an old HP Compaq cd5750 (about 10 years old) that still run fine, but was giving me an headache about the video drivers after installing Windows 10 on it.

  8. Love you dude; one more 1501 resurrected

  9. Brilliant ! It works for Win7 x64 also !

  10. Today I was surfing on the internet & found this article I read it & it is really amazing articles on the internet on this topic thanks for sharing such an amazing article.


  11. Wow...I've been beating my head on the wall trying to update my Dell Inspiron 1501 for over a week. I can't thank you enough, and your instructions were "spot on." Again - thanks.
