That is the bad part about laptops...you are at the mercy of the laptop manufacturer. As a example, there is a new IE10 for Windows 7...it cannot be installed on laptops with 'switchable/hybrid' graphics...another issue the manufacturer is responsible for. At any rate AMD is clear about the problem...when you recieve that message
"" The AMD Mobility Radeon Driver Verification tool helps you determine your notebook’s compatibility with generic AMD Catalyst Mobility drivers. It helps to prevent incorrect installation on incompatible notebooks which may lead to disabled features or functionality.""
You can, however, install the latest drivers by using a direct download...bypassing the compatibility check. However, if your laptop has switchable graphics..you will lose that function. Some people care, some don't. You can download them here > http://benchmark3d.com/drivers-search
