Re: G470 ATI driver update

Hello,

 

Go back to ATI here:  http://www.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDHomePage.aspx

 

On the top right of the page, hover over "find a driver."

Click on auto-detect and follow the prompts thereafter.

 

I just used it and it updated the ATI driver on my B575.

 

Note: Although bypassing the manufacturer's driver package is not recommended, it is sometimes necessary to gain the enhanced functionality that you require and if something goes wrong, please have the manufacturer's driver package downloaded and ready to be reapplied if necessary.

 

Good luck!

Re: G470 ATI driver update

Followup to my previous post:

 

Here is a link to the readme file for the latest drivers:

http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/AMDCatalyst119ReleaseNotes.aspx

 

First off, the latest ATI driver is 8.892 so your 10.1 has to be incorrect. So I think that 10.1 really applies to a Direct X version requirement. To check the version installed on your laptop go to the search box and type "dxdiag" (return) and without the quotes. Check your version and if is it lower than 10.1, download the latest version from Microsoft that is applicable to your OS and hardware. Note: This may not be as high as 10.1.

 

Good luck!

Re: G470 ATI driver update

I really think that the 10.1 refers to a DirectX version and not a specific graphics card driver version. Also, as far as I know, they do not list a "latest driver requirement" for every PC; however, most games do list a minimum DirectX version requirement.
