    Head to www.amd.com and download the driver for your graphics chip (Google suggests HD5470), and install that, and you should be good to go.

    Uninstall the driver you previously installed first though.

    Don't auto-detect, do it manually.

    You want to download the Catalyst Software Suite. Click here to download it directly, I've done the work for you.

    Leeky, thank you so much, but i did this same thing yesterday night,(i tryed and autodetect and found it manually,) and the problem was that download stopping working. :S this is what i said about in previouse post.

    And i uninstall the previouse driver first.

    So your unable to download the driver?

    I don't understand if your trying to tell me that you can't download it, or you can't install it. Could you describe in a little more detail what is happening, and the steps before it happens.

    For example:

    1. You should be downloading the driver from the link above.
    2. You should then double click the file to execute it.
    3. It will then guide you through the installation process
    4. Once complete, reboot and it should work fine.

    At what step is your attempts to install the driver failing?

    when i run Catalist Mobility.exe opens window that say ''..to save installation file AMD Cat..Mob.. on your comp. click Start download.''
    i click 'start download' then it give error massage that say 'ATI Cat..Mob.. download stopped working'
    now trying to find ''AMD Catalist Mobility 11.8 utility 32-bit'' somewhere else to download, so far found only for Win XP
