G565 refuses to install latest ATI Drivers :(

2011-06-17, 10:44 AM

My G565 have the integrated Radeon HD 4270 graphics accelerator.

 

I use EXACTLY the correct drivers from AMD by selecting the driver from this page:

http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/Pages/radeon_win7-64.aspx

 

For some reason it does install the new Catalyst Control Center just fine, however it wont install the new display driver, it stays at the old 8.760.0.0 from 2010-07-19... I've even ran driversweeper and done complete uninstalls...

 

Why does it refuse to install?? Are we reallly stuck at using the latest driver from Lenovo which is outdated???

Thank you yigit, but I still can't find a way to install the new drivers... I think it's a bit strange because the latest drivers do support the integrated mobility radeon hd 4200 series, are they blocked by Lenovo in some way?

 

I think it's about time we get updated drivers from Lenovo if that's the case...

as i suggested before, you should use lenovo drivers.
i you don't have any issue with graphic, you can skip updating graphic cards by the way.

yigit - that's not a good solution. Very poor one at that. A user who purchases a laptop that supports an ATI card should not be forced to use a Lenovo driver even though their laptop is manu'd by said company. There should definitely be a fix to allow the driver to be installed.

I want the greatly improved catalyst control center + some performance improvements and fixes.

One is that graphics acceleration in FF is improved, also apparently  sometimes FF4-5.x caused the GPU to run very hot in earlier driver releases. 

I would have hoped for some serious help here  but I guess I have to find some registry hack or another way to install new AMD/ATI drivers from now on... :smileysad:

 

Lenove must've blocked it from completely installing... I can't see why since it's just the pretty common HD 4270 (4200 series) onboard (shared Memory) graphics chip in the RS880M Chipset!!

 

FULLY supported by the drivers from AMD!
