AMD A8-7600 Graphics Not Detected Windows 7

Last Modified: 2017-05-27
We upgraded a customer's processor to an AMD A8-7600 APU with R7 Graphics, and now he can't play solitaire.  It also says there is not a compatible Direct 3D video card for the screensaver and we cannot complete the Windows Experience Index.

I have uninstalled all the AMD drivers, and downloaded the latest from AMD.com, including the APU drivers and chipset drivers for Windows 7 64-bit, but this does not help.  As far as I can see, the drivers are installed fine, but Windows 7 does not know what to do with them.  Please assist! :)
