Thank you so much, sir. I really appreciate the unexpected shutdown after I tried installing the drivers and having to do a SYSTEM RESTORE because a BLUE SCREEN appeared after restarting my system. All that and I'm still with outdated drivers....
edit : Whatever you do, DO NOT download and install any of those links. Read my post above.

Yes. I was very worried I had to do a complete factory settings restore. After that, videos only played audio on both Windows Media Player and VLC. Fortunately, switching graphics fixed it. So far, everything is back to normal, but I think you should delete those links asap.
If it helps is some way, I am using the following laptop;
15.6" Lenovo Y560 ideapad
Intel Core i5-450m
ATI Mobility Radeon 5730 with Intel HD switchable graphics
4GB DDR3 RAM
Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit

just another solution if you do not want to update the driver manually.
download the amd driver from the y560 support page and install it to /drivers. then stop the ccc installation.
now go to the amd-page and download the current driver (10.*). again start the installation to get the /amd folder and stop the installation of the ccc.
example for windows 7 64bit (the folders can vary depending on your os eg. windows 7 32bit: w7_inf folder.)
first go to c:\ati\support\10-*_mobility_vista_win7_64_dd_ccc\packages\drivers\display (drivers from amd-page) and copy the whole w76a_inf folder.
now go to xy:\drivers\amd graphics driver\dis\packages\drivers\display (lenovo drivers), paste the folder and overwrite the old one. run the setup.exe in xy:\drivers\amd graphics driver\. the ccc will now install itself with 10.* drivers.

The procedure yigit posted above worked for someone in another thread. Don't use the 10.8 drivers though. They cause blue screens for a lot of people. Go with 10.7 or 10.6 instead.

Do you know what date was the 10.7 version released on? I have a version that came out in March 3, 2010.
Edit: scratch that. The driver version I have was released in 5/5/2010. Driver version 8.702.5.0

The Catalyst drivers have the release date built into in their version number. The 10.6 drivers, for example, were released in June of 2010, the 10.7 drivers in July of 2010, etc.
