When I try to install the latest driver for my Mobile Sempron 3300+, it says that I already have this driver and I should first uninstall it. But my current driver is certainly older and uninstalling it doesn't change anything. Does anyone know a solution?

P.S. I'm trying updating the driver because there is a funny issue in EA Sports games (FIFA, NHL, etc.) - when the processor runs in the normal mode (2000 mHz), all the in-game action is two or even three times faster. So I have to switch to the silent mode (~812 mHz) where the game speed is normal. However, I would be glad to use full potential of my processor...

If you go into the registry via regedit:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AMD\CPU

Backup that key and delete it, then go ahead and try installing the newer driver.

As far as the games, not sure about that issue.

There's a thread about this problem on the EA Forums http://forums.ea.com/mboards/t...pa?s...threadID=123661
It seems to also happen on intel systems aswell so a driver update might not fix the problem.

It doesn't work for me even after I del the reg key
When I start the setup it hangs on installing driver and when I cancel it it hangs on Canceling the driver install.
