    I have not experienced a message like that. Are you sure it is not offering you an update to your card?
    What is showing in the device manager under "Display adapters"?

    I would delete both graphics adapters from Device Manager, reboot and let Win 8 CP discover the device and reload the graphics drivers again.

    There are probably not any Win 8 specific drivers since this is just a beta OS. Your best bet is probably the Win 7 specific drivers from ATI.

    What specific ATI card do you have?

    I have had a google, and I think you may need both. The Intel express family seems to control the graphics card and ensure its compatibility with the CPU. As ted says, Windows 8 is probably able to find the ATI drivers, and may already have done so. The Intel drivers, you will find here (you will have to use the Windows 7 drivers and selct the compatibility tab):

    hi, I upgraded my hardware not long ago to an - ATI radeon HD 6870

    I tried the 3rd party ATI/AMD driver but it doesn't work, when I try and start ubuntu (wubi install) there is just a flashing line then it goes to the shell - so I have to start it in safe graphic mode. Is there anyway to fix this? as the card is so new?

    (sorry If i posted in wrong section)

    I forgot to mention I'm running Ubuntu 10.10
