I recently installed Windows 8 onto my laptop. It has an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 graphics card in it. I had some compatability problems with the Graphics Card's drivers I had at the time and so I ended up completely wiping the drive and installing Windows 8 from scratch. It works now, but it won't play some games (such as minecraft) and has problems formatting a proper screen resolution on an additional monitor. I have a feeling I just need to install the latest drivers but I'm having difficulty figuring out where to look for them. Any help?
